Yes, Mac users use email. We may not like it. After all, email is the killer app of the internet. What we have in common is multiple email addresses, therefore, a need for multiple email signatures. Here’s a new and better way to do email signatures.
Signatures With Signature Style
Most email signatures are mundane. First name. Sometimes first name and last name. Sometimes with full address or at least a city location.
And, ever so occasionally it’s nice to update an email signature with all the above plus a personal website URL, maybe even a phone number.
Mail on your Mac does signatures but nothing like those from the new Graffiti app. If you know the power of HTML and CSS then think about what kind of email styles you can create.
Graffiti almost makes it easy to uniquely styled email signatures.
I say almost because the basics are simple enough, but more esoteric designs require some knowledge of how HTML and CSS combine to create unique typographic and layout designs.
Take a look.
Graffiti works as a Mail plugin so you create your signature settings in Mail’s Preferences.
Create a new signature and template using placeholders to hold elements for each signature. That’s where the HTML and CSS come in.
Those placeholder strings are where Graffiti becomes a little messy for the average Mac user. They’re not difficult to learn, but you need to know your way around HTML and CSS to make it happen.
If you can follow the standard html, body, div, and other components of a web page, you’ll see the value and power of Graffiti. Otherwise, it might as well be a signature in Greek, because it sure ain’t point and click.
I tried Graffiti because it’s from the same Mac app developer who created SendLater, an email plugin which lets you send email, well, later; as on a schedule and it’s very useful.
