Customizing The Template

Open the layout file you wish to use

These are located in the "Customizable Files" folder. Or use a custom layout using the custom layouts builder in the "custom layout builder" folder.

Edit the styles in the head of the document

In the head of the file there's a style sheet that controls the colors and fonts for the entire file.

Change the background color (optional)

This template uses spacer images to accomodate for Outlook 2007 and other email clients that don't support empty table cells used for spacing. If you decide to make the background any color besides grey, you'll need to change the color of these spacer images tomatch using an image editing program.

Insert your logo into the email

There are two places where the logo can go - a small logo in the top of the email, and a large logo at the bottom. The logo at the top can be any height or width - the layout will automatically scale to your logo size. The logo at the bottom can be any height and up to 290 pixels wide.

Convert your HTML and CSS to inline

After your email is finished, you'll need to convert the css to inline. Depending on what program you are using, this might already be available. Campaign Monitor and Mailchimp have their own css inline tools.

There are also a few free tools available online: http://www.mailchimp.com/labs/inlinecss.php http://www.soldesignco.com/dev-csstoinline.php
