Back in June we announced Canvas, our new way to easily build unique looking emails that work everywhere.

Since launch we’ve received lots of positive comments on how easy Canvas is to use. We’ve also seen some fantastic emails created with it. As with all our releases though, nothing is final and we’re always keen to hear as much feedback as possible.

The main requests that have been coming through have been around increasing design flexibility. In particular more control over what fonts and colors are used in Canvas emails. Thanks to everyone that has sent through their feedback, we absolutely hear you and we’re working really hard on that as we speak.

At the same time as this important work is happening though, we’ve been able to release another quick update. Multiple language support is now available in Canvas. When you’re sending emails in a language other than English, we know the details matter. So now you can choose from over 30 different languages to customize the copy for your web version, preferences, unsubscribe and social media links. Simply select your language of choice when you’re designing your Canvas email. If you’d like to suggest an additional language, feel free to let us know below.

Thanks again to everyone for your support and feedback on Canvas. Your input is crucial in making Campaign Monitor the tool you need it to be. We’ll have more Canvas updates for you soon.

    Is it somehow possible to download the template, so at least I can change the font in the source?

    There doesn’t seem to be an export button with the new canvas templates.

    Hi Matt, for now it isn’t possible to export Canvas templates, I’m sorry to say. It’s something we’re certainly looking into, so we’ll keep you posted if we have any updates on this front.

    Yeah love the templates they are really great to use but you will smash it out of the park when you get the fonts and colours sorted as it really is the major missing link to making Canvas epic.

    just a quick question about Canvas. we use canvas a lot for our newsletters but there is a ‘bug’ that i cannot seem to eliminate in my letters.

    When i copy/past de text of the newsletters in canvas everything looks stunning and like the way i want it to. But when i test my newsletter some paragraphs do not show the correct font and convert to (it looks like times new roman) another one.

    how can i fix this? hope you can help me.

    Hi Lex, the first thing that would be good to know is what email client you’re seeing this in. Not all email clients support web fonts, so we’ve provided some safe fallbacks that may display a little bit differently.

    By all means, you’re welcome to get in touch with our team with details – we’re always happy to take a look at campaigns and provide recommendations.
