I've searched for this but haven't found a solution. Is it possible to have multiple signatures in a letter, one above the other?

    It would be easier to answer if you tell how you write the letter: which document class (scrlttr2, letter, g-brief, dinbrief, lettre, ...) do you use and which code. – Stefan Kottwitz Aug 21 '10 at 1:18

If you're using the letter document class, simply insert this between the \begin{document} and the \begin{letter}:

\signature{Palpatine \\ Emperor \\ \vspace{1.5cm} Darth Vader \\ Lord of the Sith}

    This applies to dinbrief. I used \signature{Mary Sue\hspace{2cm}John Doe} which I prefer over wasting vertical space. – Raphael Mar 26 '14 at 10:14

At a point, where you place the signature, you could also use a parbox or a minipage environment. So, replace signature text for example just by

\parbox{5cm}{signature one

signature two}

or

\parbox{5cm}{signature one\\signature two}

to get a two lines, even as argument to another command.

Another way would be to use a tabular environment to stack multiple signatures on top of each other.

Old question but I was facing this problem today and I found a solution not mentioned here. I used a table within the signature and it worked perfectely.

\documentclass{letter}
\longindentation=1.5cm
\signature{
    \begin{tabular}{c c}
    Donnie Darko & Karen Pomeroy \\
    \end{tabular}
}

\address{Street Number \\ City \\ Country}

\begin{document}
\begin{letter}{}
\opening{Dear Rabbit,}
This is a letter.
\closing{Best regards}
\end{letter}
\end{document}

Using tabular it is possible to add several signatures and lines below or over to have more space for the signature or between the names:

\documentclass{letter}
\longindentation=1.5cm

\signature{
\begin{tabular}{c p{2cm} c}
~ & ~ & ~ \\
~ & ~ & ~ \\
Donnie Darko & ~ & Karen Pomeroy \\
Troubled Teenager & ~ & English Teacher\\
\end{tabular}
}

\address{Street Number \\ City \\ Country}

\begin{document}
\begin{letter}{}
\opening{Dear Rabbit,}
This is a letter.
\closing{Best regards}
\end{letter}
\end{document}
