Custom email signatures are commonplace, whether they include simple contact details or a complete HTML signature on Mac Mail. A frequent further customization to email signatures is to include an image or logo, which is what we will show you how to create in the Mac Mail app for Mac OS X.
This method works to add any image to a signature, thereby making a custom image or logo signature in nearly every version of Mail for nearly every version of Mac OS X, and it’s quite simple. All you need is a logo or picture to use, and a few moments of your time.

You’ll want to be sure you have an image file or logo handy to use, put the image file somewhere easy to locate or find so that you can access it easily from the Mac Mail app. You can use this exact same trick to add an image or logo to an existing Mail signature as well.

- Choose the “Signatures” tab, then click the [+] plus button to add a new signature, or select an existing signature to modify it

That’s it, the logo signature or image signature has been made and is ready to use.
Using the image signature in Mac Mail app is the same as any other custom signature in the mail client. When composing a new email message just pull down the “Signature” menu and choose the logo signature you created earlier, it will be automatically inserted into the current email.
