Use 280 characters or less to describe your newsletter. This short description is placed at the top of your Store and the top of your newsletter archive page.

Upload a square .jpg or .png image. It should be 300px wide and 300px tall. Logos are not currently displayed on your Store or newsletter but may be used within Letterhead soon. 

Timezone:

Select the default time zone of your newsletter from the Time zone dropdown list. The timezone defaults to Eastern Standard Time though you should always confirm it's accurate.

  • ⚠️Set your timezone correctly to the timezone in which you wish to send your newsletter so that your promotions and schedules are accurate. 

Link to your website: 

Enter a link to your website; this will appear in your Store.

Contact Information:

The street, city, state, and postal code appear on the footer of your newsletter as required by CANSPAM laws.

If you don't want to share your current mailing address, you can quickly sign up for a P.O. Box or commercial mail receiving service.

This is the literal email address your subscribers will see when they receive an email from you. Your default Letterhead sending email address will follow this format: brandname@a.letterhead.email. If you wish to change this to your domain name, please fill out a support ticket. You cannot change this field without help from support. 

Reply email address:

When a subscriber hits reply to your newsletter and send an email response, this is the email that will receive the reply.

Advanced Fallback Fonts:

These fonts can be selected so that you may give a consistent newsletter experience regardless of your subscriber's system. These fonts will be used if your primary fonts do not render for a subscriber. These are the most common fonts a user can have.

You can drop your own custom CSS elements into this field to make micro-adjustments to your newsletter's look and feel. Read the detailed documentation on what is and isn't possible in email CSS.
