How to use images to design a compelling store

The store page is divided into two sections: newsletter introduction and packages.

The first thing visitors see when accessing a store is the newsletter introduction:

Your store is your newsletter's first impression with potential promoters. To show the value of placing promotions in your newsletter, include a detailed description, accurate audience metrics, and compelling images to showcase your brand.

We recommend uploading a screenshot of how your newsletter content appears on mobile, a store banner, and a thumbnail. 

In this article, explore examples of how to effectively use the three store images to help you make design decisions and create a professional-looking store. 

Newsletter screenshot

The screenshot is placed on a phone graphic automatically after upload and should be 362 x 660 pixels.

Ideally, your screenshot image should have: 

  • Your newsletter logo or name
  • An example of a promotion type you are selling
  • A sample of your newsletter content

If you use Mailchimp, you can create a draft campaign to include all the information you want promoters to see on your screenshot image and enter preview mode -> mobile to take a screenshot of how your content appears on a phone.

Examples of screenshots:

Store banner

When a store banner image is uploaded, it is used in place of the newsletter title above the newsletter description. 

Without store banner:
Store banner:
  • A store banner should include your newsletter name and be easy to read
  • Use a png file to avoid a potentially mismatched white background
  • If your logo doesn't fit the dimensions of this section, it is better to not upload it as a store banner and use the text version of your newsletter name

Examples of store banners:

Thumbnail

The thumbnail image appears on the Letterhead store at https://store.tryletterhead.com, thumbnails should be 600 x 400 pixels.

  • The thumbnail is like a digital business card with your logo
  • It may also be used in places where your store is discovered online, like in search results and on social media posts
  • You may include an image with text details about your audience, such as the number of subscribers you reach, but remember the image should be easy to read
