Hello,

Is there any possible way to add the font open sans to my email signature?....and of course a way where it will appear as open sans to recipients.

I'm working with an html designer on my signature and we're trying to figure it out.

Any help is highly appreciated.

On the web it can be done with web fonts. I.e. the font you want to use needs to be converted to a special file type and uploaded to a server. Then you can refer to it in your CSS and the font will be downloaded by the user and show up on the page, a little like images work.

I was going to say that I very much doubt that can be done in email. The CSS, and maybe the whole process, is too advanced, I would have thought. Then I found the below article.
