    Most people who have been using email for years consider fancy signatures to be a distraction, or worse.However, you can make your signature nice and distinctive.

    You can change its font and colour (mine is in a mid-gray, which helps to separate it from the body of the message). If there's a (short) quote you very fond of, you can include it. If you are of artistic bent you could include a bit of ASCII art in it, but bear in mind though the exact layout may not be preserved on all email clients.

    At any rate, only include details you are happy to make public knowledge, and make sure the important details are in textual form, since not all email clients will display pictures in all circumstances (e.g. when a message is forwarded).

    The best suggestion I can make is providing only the details necessary and keep it as simple as possible.

    One thing you always have to keep in mind is that just because it's looking all fancy and stylized on your end doesn't mean it's the same for the recipient. For example not all clients and webmail systems will render HTML emails or attached (signature) images within the mail.

    This is very vague...would you like suggestions for professional looking signatures, or personal but fun and/or meaningful signatures? Many people like using quotes from famous people or tv/movies, others add in some professional background like career title, company, and years of experience.
