Outlook signature question - graphic AND text version possible?

Last Modified: 2015-04-29
I am trying to design a uniform signature file for everyone in the company to use. I have succeeded in creating one using basic MS Word formatting of text and a small jpg of our company logo. I am then snipping a long rectangular graphic and then inserting the graphic as my signature. This is great if every recipient I email is allowing graphics on incoming emails. However, many people do not, by default.

My question:
Can I create the singular graphic signature, as stated above, but then create some sort of fail-over signature that is embedded in that graphic that fires when the original graphic is refused or blocked? Sort of like a "IF graphics allowed use sigA, IF NOT use sigB" parameter. I know it is a long shot, but I am just curious if anyone is aware of a way to execute this with relative ease.

And to be clear, I cannot seem to create a wide format banner, inserting our logo waaaay out to the right of a multi-line signature without really looking messy. Formatting it all in Word and then snipping out a jpg is the only way I have been able to successfully manage to achieve the look I am after.

Obfuscated signature
Thanks in advance
