LETU e-mail Signature

LeTourneau University faculty and staff, please adhere to the following guidelines when creating your university e-mail signature. E-mail signatures are not required; however, this signature standard is to be used any time an official e-mail signature (anything more than name and phone number) is included at the end of a university-related e-mail communication.

Standard Elements (examples below):

  • Closing (Optional: Regards, Sincerely, Yours truly, or Thank you.)
  • Name (and degree abbreviation—optional)
  • Title
  • Division, School, Department or Office
  • Phone #(s) (maximum of three)
  • University logo (Only use the horizontal version shown below. Do not repeat the university’s name, since it appears in the logo.)
  • University website (Mac users with Entourage should verify that a double URL is not added.)
  • University Facebook page URL (optional)
  • University Twitter account URL (optional)
  • No mailing address


Cautions:

  • Always use Tahoma font (in black) for e-mail signatures. Please refrain from using other fonts or text colors in the e-mail signature.
  • No additional personalized information (including but not limited to: signature in a different font; quotation; Bible verse; picture; graphic/emoticon, such as a yellow ribbon; advice—such as “ save a tree,” etc.)
  • If personal Facebook or Twitter accounts are included, they must have prior written approval from the area’s cabinet officer.
  • No horizontal lines before the e-mail signature. Only vertical pipes as shown between multiple phone numbers and multiple URLs.
  • No bullets in front of any of the elements.
  • If a mailing list restricts you to text only, the university’s name may be used under the employee’s department, division or school, in the same font, in place of the logo.
  • If you are sending a personal e-mail, unrelated to your position at the university, remember not to include the official university e-mail signature or logo.
