123 Email Sign-Offs To Show Your Personality

Because "best wishes" is boring

Your sign-off, the bit that goes before your name at the end of an email, is a golden opportunity to show personality in your emails to retailers (and everyone else.)

Digital communication has a deadening effect on how we talk to each other – that’s why we’ve had to invent emojis and gifs. All the uniqueness that used to be expressed through body language, tone of voice and handwriting is now compressed into pixels and bits.

And it’s often pretty boring.

An interesting sign-off is a way of proving there’s a real person behind the messages you send. Someone who’s a little weird or a little playful. Someone who refuses to be squashed.

So instead of ending your emails with Sincerely or Best Wishes, why not pick something new? Dare to be different and people will notice.

I’ll leave it to you to choose a sign-off that’s appropriate for your particular business. Some of the options below might be too out there for your audience, or maybe too tame.

You’ll know the right one when you find it, but don’t be scared to have a little fun.
