How to fix font-related issues in email signatures?

You're looking for a solution to the problems caused by the fonts used in an email signature.


The use of appropriate fonts in email signatures is important; the appearance of the signature is primarily determined by the type of font your client machine supports. If the font used in the email signature is not supported, it will be replaced with some special characters or with the default font, which will affect the signature structure. Although installing the font family on the recipient's machine is one option, not all fonts are supported by every platform. To overcome the font issue:

Use web safe fonts: Web safe fonts are supported across all platforms because they are the most commonly used fonts. As a result, using web safe fonts in email signatures is the best choice.

Some web safe fonts are: Arial, Times New Roman, Courier New, Courier, Verdana, Georgia, Palatino.

Use fallback fonts: There is another option known as fallback fonts that can be used to avoid missing fonts in an email signature. When the primary fonts are not supported, using one or more fonts together can help.

For example: font-family: Trebuchet MS, Helvetica, Sans-Serif; where font1= Trebuchet MS; font2= Helvetica; font3= Sans-Serif;

When primary font i.e font1 is not supported, then the secondary font i.e font 2 will be used. You have the option to use more fonts but place the fonts based on priority.
