25 Inspiring Examples of Sign-Up Pages

Inspiration, Marketing, Web Design | Jul 24, 2009

A well developed and organized sign-up page has to relay a large quantity of data in a  small area and must be quick and easy to read and understand.

Overly creative plan names are more likely to hurt your sign-up process instead of help, as they’ll take longer to understand.

It’s better to save your creativity for the other pages which will be redirecting the user to the sign-up page.

Start a trial and error phase to test out what your audience might specifically be attracted to as this will vary from site to site.

Here are 25 creative examples of sign-up pages which you can use as a starting point for inspiration when designing your own.

    Great post!

    I was actually thinking of sending you an email last week recommending a compile of price pages, but this is pretty much what I was hoping you would blog.

    Would like to add, I think the best signup pages are the ones that include FAQs, to make the user confirm everything he has read before. For example, if he reached the sign-up page by clicking a “no credit card required, sign up now!” button, a good sign up page will include a FAQ explaining/assuring you really dont need a credit card and what terms follow, if any.

      I really like the FAQ idea, it’s so obvious that it should appear an information about the credit card if it is mentioned in the button, but I rarely see another information on that after the button press. Thanks for sharing!

      Nice collection, some of them are really great, very inspiring!

  • http://www.webdesignerdepot.com Walter

    Ah, I must have read your mind :)

  • http://www.jannejamsen.com Janne J

    Nice post, nice designs!

  • http://all-for-design.com All for Design

    Good for the inspiration…very good examples.
    Thanks !

  • http://www.crearecommunications.co.uk Adam

    That’s some great inspiration – I need to do something similar to this for my new website offering e-commerce packages! I like the use of different colours to distinguish packages like in Wufoo.

  • http://www.mymashable.co.cc/ wayne

    Great collection of sign-up pages… Thanks for making all in one post.

  • http://www.edgarleijs.nl Edgar Leijs

    This is very interesting! Sign-up, i prefer to call it Pricing pages are most of the time quite boring, but if you look at Web-o-matic… WOW!!!

    And i agree with Francisco…

  • http://www.jsbwebdesign.com JSB Web Design

    Great collection here, some of them really pack a punch. This will eb a good resource for some inspiration and ideas. These sign-up pages are very important and need to present information in an easy to understand way.

  • http://www.toyegraphics.co.uk Toye Graphics

    I really like Number 1. simple and effective, colours look really nice.

  • http://www.darrenalff.com Darren Alff

    This is great! I’d love to see something very similar to this, but with well-designed landing pages next time. You know? The pages used to capture people’s names and email addresses (and sometimes their phone number, mailing address, etc). That would be a post myself and other Internet entrepreneurs would surely be interested in. Thanks!

  • http://paperdoll.orange-crux.net/portfolio Sara

    These are beautiful. I also really like Surpass Hosting’s sign up page: http://www.surpasshosting.com

  • http://www.mydatbroker.com JP

    GREAT!!! Thanks for the inspiration

  • http://www.exxcorpio.com Luis Lopez

    I like the Wufoo and Linkpatch sing up pages, but all are really well designed, that’s great, this kind of sites don’t loose the opportunity to have the attention of the visitor.
    Thanks for the post

  • http://joaoramos.org joão

    oh god, wonderful job gathering all these examples!
    great article!

  • http://www.csskarma.com Tim Wright

    It’s interesting to see the some companies order from free -> cost and others cost -> free. I’d be interested in seeing the data on the signup rate for the ordering of services.

    Nice article, thanks.

    • Amatatomba

      I noticed the same thing. Going from cost to free probably gets more people to notice the plans that cost money, as opposed to just clicking on the free one right away.

  • http://www.heynils.com Nils Rasmusson

    Great set of inspiration-providing signups. Thanks for putting all of this together.

  • http://www.marcfalk.com Marc Falk

    Sweet collection! Pretty unique article too, haven’t seen this topic covered anywhere else :)

  • http://iliadraznin.com ILia

    Wow, great stuff. I’m actually in the processing of designing a site at work that’ll need an interesting signup page, so this will definitely come in handy as a source of ideas and inspirations.

  • http://www.templatetuts.com Template Tuts

    Excellent post, I love these examples.

  • http://piwigo.wordpress.com Pierrick Le Gall

    Thanks a lot for this article. In the next few weeks I will have to design such a page for http://www.piwigo.com sign-up page (Piwigo.com is currently in beta stage, the website is only a sign up form for beta testers).

    When I read the post title in my RSS reader, I thought it was about the sign up form itself. This would have also helped me a lot :-) (just in case you’re preparing such a post in the future)

  • David Jordan

    These aren’t general sign up pages, these are only specific to services that have packages. When I think of sign-up I think of putting in a username, email, password etc.

    I like the eWedding one because it has the (?) next to each option so you can actually find out more about that option with ease. Not many of the others actually do that and explain an option further.

  • http://pagegardens.com/ Page Gardens

    Beautiful! Very strong call to action on them.

  • RoaldA

    Awsome! :D

    I loved mediatemple and wufoo.

  • http://www.blog.tropicalismo360.com tropicalismo360

    Great stuff!

  • http://www.freeiphone4me.co.uk Mandy

    I like the look of some of these – especially #17. If only my design skills were better than basic photoshop – my sign up page needs some serious work.

  • http://www.alastairmogford.co.uk/ Alastair Mogford

    Great article, and some great sites too.

    One I would at to the list though is the Spotify product listing page at: http://www.spotify.com/en/products/overview/

    Quite a dense sign-up overview page, but still simple to understand and really nice.

  • http://www.misty-blue.net Sarah

    Very good list. I love the comparison grids. As a user, I find that they are the easiest to understand quickly. As a designer, they’re simple to create. It’s great to see how each site puts their own twist on the grid design.

  • http://www.gotmedia.org/ Steph

    Very refreshing! The Web-o-matic one was quite creative, but the wufoo one was definitely where the drool started :)

  • Ed

    Too much stuff on all of them.

  • http://www.chelariu.de Paul

    I like it, thanks =)

  • http://www.travisdunn.com Travis Dunn

    Nice collection! A good follow up post might be the fulfillment step. The comparison pages are exciting and attractive, and certainly show a common design pattern, but I wonder how different the subsequent steps are for each of the sites?

  • http://sidoza.com Sid

    Fantastic, thanks! Will keep this in mind when I do a store redesign next time.
