Email Signature

To create your email signature, a good starting point is to copy and paste one of the following into Outlook or other email software. To maintain formatting, do not use a keyboard shortcut to paste. Be sure to select the clipboard icon and choose "keep source formatting" when pasting. The line spacing is correct once placed into the signature field.

Your Name | Title | 503-352-xxxx

You may want to add a P.S. under your signature, such as one of the following:

I am proud to work at a university that inspires students to think, care, create, and pursue justice. | pacificu.edu

NOTES & OPTIONS

  • Verify that the signature is using Verdana, the recommended font choice for emails
  • Follow Pacific’s editorial standards for professional communications
  • Include your office/department specific information to your signature as needed
  • Consider using pronouns in your email signature offering a way to share gender identity. Below is an example of where to include she/her/hers or he/him/his and/or they/them/theirs if you choose to add pronouns.

Your Name | Title | 503-352-xxxx

  • The pacificu.edu URL does not need an http or www prefix
  • There’s no need to include a 1- before the phone number
  • Be sure that all phone numbers are numeric only and that you use hyphens, rather than periods, between numbers
  • Don't use backgrounds or highlight text as they render the message inaccessible for people with visual disabilities
  • Don't use the logo or other artwork in your signature since most recipients receive them as attachments rather than as a viewable file as intended.
