If you have browsed through the email template gallery in your account, you may have seen them featuring a sign-off section with a script font signature.

Let’s admit it. There’s something nostalgic and warm about a handwritten note.

But before you grab your pen and dust off the scanner, there’s an easier and more creative way to sign off with your signature. Choose from Flodesk’s custom script fonts that make it feel like you personally signed your email, humanizing your brand.

Adding a simple signature sign-off to your newsletter

Step 1. Open your email in edit mode.

Step 2. Locate the place in the email where you want to add your signature and hover over the block right before it. A plus (+) sign will appear above and below it.

Step 3. Click on the plus (+) sign and select the Layouts icon.

Note: Script fonts and other types of specialty fonts are only available in layout blocks.

Step 4. In the layout selector on the right, scroll down until you see this text-only layout block and select it: Add some beautiful text with a custom font

Step 5. Highlight the placeholder text and overwrite it with your sign-off phrase and name.

Step 6. Under the Font tab, use the drop-down menu, scroll down to the script fonts section, and pick a font you like.

You can even upload your own custom script font! Find here a quick guide on adding your custom brand fonts to Flodesk.

Step 7. After applying the script font of your choice, adjust the font size, line height and letter spacing as needed. And you’re done!
