Email signatures face unique compatibility issues, prompting the use of universally recognized web fonts to ensure professional presentation

Updated over a week ago

I - The constraints of email signatures

Differences from other media

Unlike other media such as PDF documents or websites, emails have specific restrictions. The fonts used in documents and websites are often embedded or downloaded automatically, allowing great freedom of style. Email signatures, on the other hand, depend on the fonts installed on the recipient's computer.

The risk of a missing font

If you use a special font in your signature and the recipient doesn't have it installed on their computer, the email will display a default font. This can distort the appearance of the signature and give an unprofessional impression.

II - Ensuring a consistent email signature

Signatures need to be faithfully represented on a variety of platforms and email clients. With custom fonts, there's a high risk of the layout being altered if the font isn't pre-installed on the recipient's device.

To avoid these inconveniences, we rely on standard web fonts.

These fonts are universally recognized and guarantee that your signature remains legible and elegant, whatever the e-mail client used.

III - Not recommended: Add your own custom font

Go to "Templates" and then "Text block", where you'll need to click on the "Source code" button (icon: < >).

Here you can directly modify the font-family: 'your custom font'.

Please note that we cannot offer customer support for problems related to the use of custom fonts.
