This page is provided to facilitate the process of adding the 1.5 Climate Logo to signature files in gmail. Over 300 billion emails go out every day. It is the intention of LoveShift and It's My Climate that we use the sig files of emails to automate the promotion of a change in thinking regarding the climate. As you can see from the logo, it is our belief that we need to COMMIT to 1.5 degrees Celsius as the line in the sand, to not be exceeded, in order that we have a buffer zone between where we are and the dreaded 2.0 degrees tipping point, where we never want to be.
Please read this page carefully. If you wish to help, add the sig file, following the instructions from Google below, to YOUR email service. You can add text, links and our blue logo.
A missing step which Google left out: Between Step 3 and Step 4 above, you have to select which sigs you want as defaults. Here is what this step looks like:
This is actually good news, because you can have multiple saved sigs and select which one to use. And, as a final note, when your email is loaded (I am using my Simple Sig right now, you can select it during a gmail and just delete it manually from that particular email. Here is what my Simple Sig looks like.
Note: You can import an image, but it cannot be taller than 100 px. One way to get this to work is to copy and use the large image down the page, and then select "smaller" within the gmail signature app. Or, to make it easier, just copy the image below. It is already "pre-shrunk" to 100px.
100 px for gmail sig file
75 px for letterhead or business cards
Full size for Web sites and print media.
Note. You will notice that I use a link above the logo. I design this in the gmail signature text box. What I choose is to link to the homepage of It's My Climate. That URL is https://www.itsmyclimate.com.
The Google gmail signature box allows for linking, so, if you add the text,
I'm Committed to 1.5 Degrees Celsius, and make it a link to https://www.itsmyclimate.com, it will work.
I also include a link below the image, to give my visitor a way to see what a 1.5 Climate Sig File looks like, and - to pay it forward, by providing a way for the interested recipient of the email to replicate the process.
