Like the signature at the bottom of a letter, your email signature tells the reader who is sending the e-mail. By consistently using your email signature, you visually connect your unit with the university in online communications, enhancing the reach and the impact of your messaging.
Standard Email Signature
For general correspondence relating to UCLA, particularly in communications material, the Standard Email Signature should be used. The only exceptions are the Chancellor’s Executive Communications, and communications relating to the Centennial Campaign for UCLA.
If you want to include the UCLA logo in the signature, use the “boxed” version because it has greater visual weight than the basic logo.
The UCLA boxed logotype is not always present in e-mail signatures, depending upon the unit. In your e-mail communications, such as to prospective students, you can simply include a digital representation of the sender’s signature along with a print version of his or her name and the title, as shown here.
The Centennial Campaign For UCLA Email Signature
For Development Communications specifically, email signatures can be generated using the Campaign’s email signature tool, which can be found at http://emailsignature.support.ucla.edu/. Features of the tool include:
Email signatures are typed in Verdana. The sender’s name is in 10-point, all caps, bold italic treatment, and the rest of the type is in 8-point font.
- Signatures can be created and added to PC users’ Outlook automatically and instantly.
- Signatures can be revised and regenerated at any time.
- Signatures are immune to personal modifications (upon login, they are reset to the original standard format).
- Future signature updates can be pushed out globally and effortlessly.
