According to our Customer Happiness Heroes, WiseStamp users often ask if it’s possible to change the size of a banner image.
Technically, the answer is no.
Not to worry! Being the heroes they are, they’ve come up with a pretty painless hack that’ll make it happen.
Here’s what they recommend:
1. Size your image the way you want it to appear in the signature.
2. Create an image URL for the image (if you don’t have your own web space, you can create an image url with a tool like TinyPic).
3. Paste the URL in the “Custom HTML” app.
If the image preview doesn’t appear, try including an HTML image tag:
Save, and that’s it. The image should appear in your signature.
Note: Yes, you can include more than one image link in your custom HTML. But if you want to include more than one image in a banner, it’s easiest to use a tool like Canva to create a collage.
Collages are fun to create and often look cleaner.
However, in most cases, one eye-catching image is more than enough to do the trick.
Bonus: Design Tips
Now that you know the technical aspects of adding a banner to your email signature, Merav Shalom, WiseStamp’s graphic artist, would like to help you take your banner to the next level by giving you her top three banner design tips:
1. Think of your banner as a sort of name tag.
When we’re writing our name on a nametag, most of us use a black marker and write our name in easy to read, clear letters.
Colorful, glittery, ink and huge letters would be overpowering in a way that would distract from the point – helping people remember your name.
The same goes for your banner. Make it clear and clean so that the point – buying your product – is obvious.
Does your signature include a banner? How has it benefited you? Share your tips with us!
