We often get asked by new customers if we have any sample templates they can check out to get started. If you haven't noticed them in there, our new Resource Center now includes 30 free email templates. These designs cover everything from a simple announcement through to a more complex newsletter.
Check out out free HTML email templates.
On top of the 30 HTML files, we've also included the original layered Photoshop files so you can tweak the design to your hearts content.
Each template has been tried and tested in 10 different email environments, including Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, Outlook, AOL 9, Thunderbird, Lotus Notes, Mac Mail, Entourage and Eudora. If you end up making significant changes to the original templates though, we recommend re-testing just to be safe.
To ensure design consistency across most of the popular email environments, we went for a table based design. If you'd prefer an all CSS approach, we'd recommend Mark Wyner's free CSS template he generously provided in a previous article.
If you're looking for some further inspiration to get the creative juices flowing, our design gallery has now grown to almost 100 awesome examples of email design from some of the best known web designers on the planet.
