Email Design Tips

  • Page Size: In order to export a design to HTML designs it should be a single page. The page should be up to 816 x 3000 px. Smaller designs will optimize email load time.
  • Text size: Ensure legible text by using a text size of at least 16pt.
  • Interactive elements: Interactive elements like forms and polls will be displayed but not interactive in an HTML export. Embedded hyperlinks will be functional in an HTML export.
