Inserting cursive signature to letter in LaTex

I am writing a letter and I want LaTex to put a cursive signature between sincerely and my printed name. When I do it like this, It puts the cursive under the print.

    \signature{Jane Doe\\Job Title\\Company Name\\phone #}
\begin{letter}
\opening{Dear ConAgra Food Supplier:}
\closing{Sincerely yours,}
\LARGE\calligra Jane Doe
\end{letter}

• Try \closing{Sincerely yours, \\\LARGE\calligra Jane Doe} – user11232 Dec 7 '14 at 6:01

You can specify the closing, your cursive name and your signature all within the \closing command (as suggested in a comment by @Harish):

\closing{Sincerely yours,\\[2ex]%
{\LARGE\calligra Jane Doe}\\[2ex]%
Jane Doe\\Job Title\\Company Name\\phone num%
}


The [2ex] after the newline commands specify how much vertical space to add between the lines. Change at will.

Remove also completely the line \signature{...}, you won't need it.

You can inspect the definition of \closing{..} if you look at the source code of the letter.cls style file. From there I deduce that there isn't really anything much more subtle that you could do: \closing creates an indented parbox, and prints in there the closing itself, a vertical spacing, and then either the specified signature (if any) or the specified name. There seems to be no inherent way to fill in that vertical space it inserts.

• You don't need to put the signature text inside \closing{}, though. You can leave that in \signature.... – cfr Dec 7 '14 at 14:50
• @cfr ... true, but then you will have a (big) space that's provided between the closing text and the said signature, or you would have to compensate for that with for example a \vspace*{-<some amount>}. – phfaist Dec 7 '14 at 17:55
