Other Projects

htmlsig.com

Developer / Co-Owner

4 years ago I built htmlsig.com. Htmlsig was a simple email signature generator that had a form for your information and a live preview. I received a lot of good feedback and also it was also mentioned on Web designer depot, Hacker News and Reddit. During those first 2 years, I received a lot of feature requests on Twitter from users that would require something far more powerful than a one-page site. We relaunched the website in November 2014 with a lot of new features including saving and managing email signatures for small to large companies and by January we had over 300 paid subscribers and over 70,000 signatures created.
