Newsletter design customization options

Learn how to customize your email newsletter

Authoring is currently in an alpha testing stage, which means it is not fully stable and only available to a few users.

You can customize fonts, add an accent color, and upload your own banner (also called wordmark) to your newsletter.

To customize the newsletter font and accent color (the color of links, blockquotes, and buttons), click on Settings in the Letterhead menu then click on Sending emails on the upper right menu. Under Look and feel, choose your accent color, body font, and heading font. Once you're happy with your selections, click the Save your settings button:

  • Some custom fonts may not be available when viewing the newsletter in different email clients. When that's the case, the font "Verdana" is used instead.
