Email Sign-Offs When You’re Sick of Saying “Best”.
I have an mortifying confession: The vast majority of the time, I sign off my emails with “Big Thanks”. Never mind that I have nothing to show appreciation for or not—it tends to be my default signature. Is there a group for this?
When I’m not busy expressing my gratitude for absolutely nothin’? I go with a standard “best” at the end of my messages. Am I blowing you away with my creativity?
It’s not that I don’t want to finish my email with something great. It’s just that I often find myself drawing a blank. Are there even any other options aside from those two widely-accepted favorites?
Absolutely. And, as a matter of fact, there are lots of them. Fortunately for you (and for me!) I pulled a huge selection into this list right here. Of course, not all of them will be suitable for every sort of situation or office. But, with so many options, you’re bound to find one that fits the bill.
So, go ahead and bookmark this page and come back to it when you feel like straying from your standard email sign-off and trying something a little dangerous or different.
IF YOU NEED SOMETHING FORMAL:
All My Best
IF YOU WANT SOMETHING FRIENDLY:
Enjoy Your [Day of the Week]
Happy [Day of the Week]
IF YOU NEED TO SHOW APPRECIATION: (I really mean it this time:)
All My Thanks
I Can’t Thank You Enough
I Owe You
IF YOU’RE FEELING HILARIOUS OR SUPER CHEESY:
Congrats on Reading This Whole Email
Don’t Stop Believin’
I Need Coffee
Again, not all of these will be appropriate for every single email you send. Just like in spoken communication, the words you use with your boss or an important client will be much different than the ones you’d use with a close friend or co-worker.
So, make sure to think through the message and the circumstances before adding your signature—particularly if you’re thinking of using a snarkier one. Feeling stuck?
With that in mind, kiss your tried and true sign-off goodbye and use one of these to switch things up every now and then!
