After having to reset more than 20 domain email signatures (Get your emails here) for more than 20 email accounts and after moving these 20 domain email accounts around 20 different servers (If you wish, you can migrate to Google here) one comes to the conclusion that Wise Email Stamping might be a good solution to keep for the future. So, what is there with WiseStamp, why is it good to have a Email Signature App and how to use one? Besides security and other issues (SPF, DCIM) signatures are the most useful parts of our emails.

- Browser add-ons make WiseStamp work with Gmail, Yahoo! Mail and other web-based email.
- WiseStamp, not through its fault entirely, does not offer a plain-text signature alternative.
- You cannot have the signature change automatically based on recipient or subject, for example.
- More formatting choices and design tools would be nice.
Email Signature Templates
With life in general and email signatures as well, you need not invent the wheel to get a wheel. WiseStamp includes a myriad of templates that make your email signature look good—and appropriate for a signature.
Not all templates are perfect for all uses, mind you, and some lay it on a bit thickly. WiseStamp also reserves a good number of its designs for paying members.
Paying or free member, you are not limited to the templates WiseStamp includes, though the options for customizing your signature further might be more limited than you had expected: you can pick between three fonts, a number of font sizes and colors, and you can adapt the icons for links to social profiles.
The Information Is Not (Only) in Your Signature
WiseStamp’s template system accomplishes another goal elegantly, though: all the essential information is bound to be in your signature.
With the editor and template system, you also have to type it but once to save and play with it permanently. If you try a template that does not include certain information, it is not lost.
Your trying different designs and playing with their formatting is not the only thing that is dynamic about WiseStamp signatures; possibly the most enticing tool WiseStamp offers are its “apps” for including more than the basic information in your signature.
What about practice? If you use WiseStamp with a supported web-based email account (such as Gmail, Yahoo! Mail and Outlook.com) in a supported browser (such as Google Chrome), practice much follows theory: you compose your signature in the WiseStamp editor on the web, and the plug-ins take care of the rest, setting up and maintaining your sig including images, dynamic content and all.
With an email service or program not so well supported (Outlook, for instance), you have to jump through more hoops to get a result that is worse: to set up iOS Mail, for instance, you send yourself an email with the desired signature and then copy that to your settings—with images and dynamic apps lost and, perhaps, some of the formatting still intact.
This is not entirely WiseStamp’s fault, of course, but worth keeping in mind.
It is also worth noting that, even with fully supported email setups, WiseStamp’s free version will maintain only one signature; subscribers can create multiple signatures for their various email personas—and have WiseStamp pick one automatically based on the address used for sending.
At the end of the Email
Well, at the end of the day all is streamlined through inventiveness, over sustainability and back to community. If one practice is good for one, for a group or for a larger part of population, that part might form a habit. When habits are formed, they become rules. Similar happened from writing a letter on paper, to writing an e-mal – both need signatures. But for a distinctions, email signatures aren’t so founded as the habit of using them is just recent.
So, if you like it, use it but most of all stick to the rules of letter writing. Once these standards are accomplished then apply your knowledge over the whole scope of your business. But stick to simple straight forward and you’re well signed to any email. And if you don’t want spam, use disposable emails.
