You realize adding a scanned image of anyones signature to emails is not a good idea?
As it will be sent as an image, it can cause delays for some recipients or the email may even be blocked by a recipients email monitoring application(s).

Additionally, once that scanned image of your signature has been sent out.
Whats to stop someone from copying it and using it in a malicious manner? Not Much.
