Please Note:  Animations do NOT display in MS Outook 2007 and 2010

One single name signature per person for free .... a Donation is expected for anything other than that.

 

To those of you who have recognized the time and effort spent and have donated...  A big thank you, it helps to keep this web site running.

I may do a simple animated signature for anyone. i.e. single name such as;or

or any other name for free.....anything extra, such as a full name (forename and surname) would have to be 'negotiated'.  I  also appreciate a Thank you note by email.    It is amazing how many people have asked for and received an animation but have never seen fit to say thank you!!!!  While they are free there is still a lot of time and effort consumed in the making of even the smallest of names.   At present I use the following instruments for writing the names...

 If you think you would like your name written with another instrument I would be willing to discuss by email, your requirements.

This is another addition to the available signatures....

You can have your name placed in this one...

And another addition  (your name can be substituted)

By default I make all signatures with a transparent background so they will  go on any background except the colour of  the signature.  If you prefer to have it with a particular background colour, let me know.  

I can also animate your own personal signature if you prefer that.  For me to do that you will have to forward an image of your signature with your request.

 I have prepared a Word Document detailing how to make the signature on a default stationery so when you click on the new mail  button in MS OUTLOOK, your signature is on the page ready to go.   To view or download the file click HERE  

There is also a Tutorial on how to make just a signature file in Ms Outlook (pre 2007)  HERE

To save an animation you can click on the link then right click on the picture and 'save picture as' or you can right click on the link and 'save target as'. Make sure you save it as a .gif file or it will not be animated and only show the first frame.  To add an animated signature (or any picture) in Outlook Express and Outlook email program, while composing your email or at the end of it click on 'insert' in the menu bar then click on 'picture', browse to where your picture or animated signature is, click on it, click ok, ok and (hopefully) your picture appears on your page.   Click here to see how to configure your signature in Mozilla.  Click here to see how to configure Mozilla for stationery.

I am receiving a large number of requests but when I ask for confirmation I never hear from those people again.  Most of them are from people with Yahoo email addresses.   If you are one of those people please make sure you check you junk/spam folder.

I will not make a requested signature for anyone until I get a confirmation reply email.

  If you are one of those, or you have not received my email please contact me again to see if we can establish a two way contact.

 Please make the subject in the form "animated Signature".

and give me an indication as to your  choice of font color and writing instrument.

Sorry Requests not available at present.
