Funny and Professional Email Signature Ideas

Funny and Professional Email Signature Ideas

Whether you have a business or personal email, adding an email signature is a nice final touch to what can sometimes feel like an impersonal, cold, or rather generic and unremarkable email. 

If you’re writing a business email, a professional email signature can elevate the overall tone of your email, amplify your message, and improve your chance of getting noticed and receiving replies. 

If you’re writing a personal email, you can have some fun with your email signature and alternate between funny or inspirational quotes, memes, images, or come up with your own sayings and ideas that you can alternate between depending on how you’re feeling and who you’re talking to. 

You decide who you want to be that day, or in that particular situation, or with a certain client. You can think of it as having different emojis for different situations, only in email signature form.

If you don’t even know where to begin, we’re here to give you a helping hand with a few funny and professional email signature ideas that you can use in all kinds of situations, so let’s jump straight to them!

Professional Email Signatures

The signature you use in the emails you send to (potential) clients, business partners, or colleagues can be as simple or as detailed as you’d like. At the least, it should include your name and your company’s name, but if you want to build trust and connection and make it easier for people to reach out, you can also include other information like:

  • Your title
  • Your phone number
  • Your company’s website
  • Your company logo
  • Social media links
  • Your company tagline
  • Link to a product or relevant content
  • Expertise or important qualifications
  • A call-to-action
  • A photo of you

You can also use any of this information to create text message signatures. Check out this article on text message signatures to see why and how to set up a signature for any outgoing business text messages. Of course, keep it short when it comes to text messages, but when it comes to emails as well. Don’t over-stuff your business email signature with all of this information, because nobody pays attention to a crowded signature. I would say pick at most 5 or 6 things from this list, keep it up to 3-4 lines, and build an aesthetically pleasing and professional email signature, like this example you can see in the image below:

Professional Email Signature Quotes

If you’re going to use a quote as a business email signature, make sure to keep it classy, maybe a tad funny and a tad inspirational, but try to stay away from over-the-top motivational quotes that make people nauseous more than anything else, according to many tweets likes these ones:

Or if you’re going to add something like “We look forward to your business again in the future” to your email signature, maybe think if it really applies to your business? There are few businesses that shouldn’t encourage their clients to come back, but still, there are a few that exist:

So here are a few quote ideas that you could add to your business email signature:

Funny Email Signatures

If you have a very casual relationship with your colleagues or clients, and you want to go even further with the comedy element, you can always opt for a funny email signature. Otherwise, you can always use these with your friends and family and keep the fun alive. Just keep in mind everyone’s type of humor and try not to repeat one type of signature too often so people don’t get annoyed.

When using humor influenced by a particular style, always keep in mind the context and the recipient. Ricky Gervais’ humor is distinct and might not be everyone’s cup of tea. However, in the right setting, these could be quite fun and fitting!

Funny Email Signatures in the Style of Michael Scott

Michael Scott, the bumbling but endearing regional manager of Dunder Mifflin in “The Office,” offers a distinct comedic style that’s a blend of naïveté, misplaced confidence, and a heart of gold. Here are some email signatures inspired by his character:

Funny Email Signatures in the Style of Dwight Schrute

Dwight Schrute: the eccentric, beet-farming, assistant-to-the-regional-manager of Dunder Mifflin in “The Office”! Let’s dive into some email signatures that channel Dwight’s unique blend of confidence, absurdity, and meticulousness:

The Literalist:
“Sent electronically via a series of tubes known as the Internet.”

The Ambitious:

Funny Email Signatures in the Style of Chandler Bing
