embedding adobe font in html email signature

Hello!

 

I made a html email signature that I want to use in Mail (Apple).

I wrote the code and added the link for embedding the font. It all works but when I send an email to another computer, the text is not displayed in the font I want, so the font embedding does not work.

 

Here is the code:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
<style>
body {
text-align: left
}
body {
color: #273943
}
body {
font-size: 14px
}
body {
font-family: "source-code-pro"
}
</style>
</head>
 
<body>
<img src="https://i.imgur.com/DS0TRFn.jpg" title="Collid'or" />

<br>
<br> BTW BE O726.519.9O4 <br>
</body>
</html>
 
Is there an error in the code or is it the email client that blocks embedding?
Any help would be fantastic!
 
Thanks in advance.

I'll preface this by saying: it's been a long time since I used a Mac, longer since I used the Mail program on one.

It likely has to do with sending a link to an external file.

In my personal email client, not only will the font not show up, but neither will any of the images unless/until I say it's OK to download them. The default security settings don't let it happen.

Mixing HTTP and HTTPS sources in the same document could be the culprit. Mixing secure and insecure content is generally treated poorly by both browser and email client security settings.

Using @import instead of a <link> might also be the problem.

Here's an interesting page, highlighting the differences between various email clients and how they treat styling in html emails...

E-mail is still a primitive, text-based form of communication.  It's not even close to being a website.  For that reason, I have never tried to use embedded fonts in e-mails.  

 

As far as an e-mail signature goes, I would use an online generator because they've been tested to work in the major clients like Yahoo, Gmail, Apple Mail and others.

Custom fonts, such as fonts created specifically for a company, can be used in email signatures. However, as a custom font is most likely not installed on an external recipient's device, the font may not to show correctly on your email signature and a fall back font, such as Times New Roman, will be used.

Not only does the type of font you use in an email signature matter, but so does the style of the font; your email signature font could damage your brand’s reputation.

Using a garish or wacky font in a corporate email signature, such as in the examples below, is not recommended as this can come across as unprofessional.

But If you are looking for HTML Email Signatures than Please refer to the below link

Hello giraph

 

Create signatures

  1. In the Mail app 

    Alex25699410w8zy_0-1661339280313.png

     

     on your Mac, choose Mail > Preferences, then click Signatures.

  2. In the left column, select the email account where you want to use the signature.

    If All Signatures is selected when you create a signature, you’ll need to drag the new signature to an email account before you can use it.

  3. Click the Add button 

    Alex25699410w8zy_1-1661339280299.png

     

     below the middle column.

  4. In the middle column, type a name for the signature.

    The name appears in the Signature pop-up menu when you write a message.

  5. In the right column (the preview), create your signature.

    You can use the Edit or Format menus in Mail to change the font or layout, turn text into links, or check spelling. To add an image, drag it into the preview area.

If you want your signature to appear after the original text of messages you reply to or forward, deselect the “Place signature above quoted text” tickbox.

 

Regards

Most of your replies from the pro's here are basically correct in a round about way.

Basically - Yeah you can do custom fonts. Will it work in emails - Some people will see it. Is it worth it? Nope.

When it comes to email signitures - It is even less likely to work. Apple mail supports custom fonts in email body but not as signitures.
It is either normal fonts or images.

Comments about http / https mixing etc is not accurate, that in terms of email and email marketing is more of derliverability and bulk email and validation  acceptance on servers so ignore all that.

- Email Signitures wont do custom fonts

- You cant do a full web page and head style in email signitures

- Only select inline style works in email signitures

 

Nancy linked you some online email signiture builders. You can see the code they form.
