Email Signature

Main Content

To maintain consistency across the university in internal as well as external email communications, we are recommending a format for the signoff signature. A serif font should be used for the body of the email. (Palatino, Times New Roman, Georgia, etc.)

Email signatures should be set in 9pt Trebuchet. The sender's name should be all caps over his/her title in regular black. The signature should have a full paragraph break before listing the office name and address in SIU Maroon. After another full paragraph break, the signature should list the email address, phone, cell phone, and fax number. Lastly, the signature should list the university's website (SIU.EDU) or the user's departmental website.

NOTE: Use of SIU Carbondale signature following the email signature is optional.
