Create and insert a signature in Gmail

The signature attached to your emails can be customised to reflect your personal tastes, your company logo, or a particular mood. Signatures can contain text, links, and pictures; for example, you can create a signature for a business email that includes your name, job title, phone number, and company logo or photo.

Here's an example:
