Email Signatures



Your email signature is your digital business card, and it represents the college and our brand. Our purpose is not to constrain creativity, but rather to establish a shared basis for professionalism, consistency, and compatibility across a wide range of email systems and applications. For these reasons, we provide these templates and guidelines.

Johnson Email Signatures

Email Signature Replies/Forwards

Email Replies

Do's and Don'ts



Create two separate signatures: new and reply/forward

In addition to your regular new-messages signature, consider creating a separate one for replies/forwards, condensed to contain only your name and contact information. This avoids excessive accumulation of repetitive information in long threads, but ensures recipients can still derive basic contact information. This is supported by most email clients, but not all. The Outlook desktop client does, for instance, while the web client does not.


  • Typeface: Arial
  • Point Size: Default, or at most one to two points less than your body text
  • Color: Black (other than links or Cornell red for division names)

Contact Information

  • Formatting: Use dots instead of dashes to separate phone numbers (607.255.xxxx). Label numbers as "Phone"/'Fax"/"Mobile" instead of (e.g.) "p."/"f."/"m." In general, follow the examples.
  • Include your email address: While it may seem unnecessary, since your email address should be obvious to anybody receiving an email from you, if your message ends up in the middle of a long thread, your email address may be lost.

If you are a Dyson/Johnson/Hotel or other Cornell alum
Feel free to indicate your alum status with your name, following college/school standards for degree and class year (’00), with either a straight (') or curly (’) apostrophe. An apostrophe and single quote are not the same thing; a curly apostrophe looks like a closing single quote (’), not an opening one (‘) as is often incorrectly done.


Do not

No images/clip art, including custom stationery/backgrounds. They don't always render properly and sometimes come through as attachments.

  • Legal-disclaimer taglines: Acceptable if your department or role requires one.
