Email Signature

Consistency application of LWTech Branding is also key. As an employee of LWTech, you are speaking on behalf of the college, and your program/department with your LWTech email. As such, personal phrases in your signature, non-approved taglines, etc. dilute the LWTech brand and experience and are to be avoided. Please refer to the following email signature examples on creating your LWTech email signature.

For accessibility, the email background must be white, email text must be black and sans-serif and your email signature should use the Blue and Yellow versions of the full size logo (never the bug).

  • Font family: Arial
