*Email Signatures
With respect to concerns for accessibility, the digital team does not recommend the use of graphical email signatures. Additionally, graphical email signatures don’t allow for the recipient to copy and paste contact information and some email clients block messages with graphics by default. For these reasons, plain-text signatures are recommended. – UD Brand Guidelines, page 59
