Choose an email template

The first step in creating a mailing is choosing a template. The template frames your content, and in some cases, comes with preset styles for text, links and captions. It's the foundation for a stylish mailing, but if you happen to change your mind after you start adding content, it only takes a couple clicks to switch to another template for a new look.

To get started: From your Campaigns page, click the Create a new email button.

Choosing from your existing templates

If you're using a custom template that our Design Team created for you, or if you've already added templates from the Template Gallery, you can peruse those in the top section of the page, labeled "My Templates."

Choosing from the Template Gallery

You can also choose any of the responsive templates listed in the Template Gallery below your templates. Some design collections are organized by use (like the Thank You and Invitation collections), while others are packaged based on a design theme. Templates have a built-in, coordinated suite of styles for text, links and captions.

You can add an individual template to your My Templates section. Or to jump right into editing, select Use this template

Changing templates

If you begin work on a mailing and decide you want to change your template to something else, it's no problem. Just click the Show templates link under your mailing's name.
