I've recently signed up for Google Apps because of the email support. I only use the web based gmail client for all my mail. I'd like to have a professional email signature for each email that I send that includes a small image which is the Logo of my company. How can include such an signature with Gmail?

A lot of your recipients won't see the image anyway as most e-mail clients block the downloading of remote content (like images) by default. – ChrisF Jul 16 '10 at 9:58
I've learned to avoid the image as well, what you can do is add links to your social marketing sites, twitter, facebook, etc. – drye Jul 16 '10 at 14:20
I came up with an approach I haven't seen elsewhere: webapps.stackexchange.com/a/92327/122349 (Basically use Chrome Dev Tools to manipulate the HTML in the textarea) – Nate Apr 28 at 1:01

Google recently announced support for rich text in signatures. That means you can now configure the font family, size and color, as well as insert images into the signature. Just go to your gmail settings and you'll find it right there, no need to enable as a lab feature or anything! It's possible it hasn't been expanded to Google Apps for your domain yet, in which case it should be coming pretty soon.

I can confirm that my domain has this feature already, so it's certainly a matter of time before you get it (I have my language set to English [US]). – Raithlin Jul 16 '10 at 9:29
Remember to refer to this question to remove the "--" before the signature webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/2817/… – phwd Jul 16 '10 at 10:52
And this question, which could almost be a duplicate: webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/3586/… – drye Jul 17 '10 at 6:05

Just to add to that if you have multiple accounts (and hence want multiple signatures) Gmail can now handle this too (I used to have to use 'labs' canned responses to do this). So if you also set up Gmail to automatically respond to the e-mail account the message was originally sent to it means you automatically get the correct signature on your reply. Very nice.
