Branding

Email Signatures

When emailing internal UNCSA people or external people, consistent, concise and important contact information creates an effective and visually coherent look across university departments and offices. This look can be accomplished with modifying your email signature. You will need to set up and use multiple signatures depending if you are emailing someone within the UNCSA community or outside the campus community. For best practice for email templates, contact Digital Media.
