Honestly Mar 23

It's a lot more legible than my paper signature...

But seriously, how can you make a mess of writing your name and contact details?!

It needs a little work Mar 23

I need to update the font, maybe add a little more information. I'm open to suggestions!

One thing I like is that it has a photo of my real signature instead of a font pretending to look like handwriting.

It could use a bit of work ... Mar 23

... mainly because I don't like the font. But it does have all necessary contact details and some people have actually clicked on my ProZ link in the signature, so I know it does what it's supposed to, I just don't like the design.

Same for me.
Well, I like my signature and I like my e-mail signature.

Sounds perfect

Safety measures? Mar 23

I forgot to add this to my earlier comment but I have a related question: how does this work safety-wise? Aren't you worried your signature might be copied and used for any sort of ... malicious intent? I don't know if that's even possible but that was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw your comment...

Safety? Mar 24

I only sign my first name, to begin with. Then I actually have three e-mail signatures: one for new clients, where I add my graduate degree and advertise my book; one for other clients; and one for friends.

Regular and OK Mar 24

It's my first and last name, my title, my phone number, all in regular Arial 12 boldface, and a Pro logo. Good enough, and I don't intend to change it.
