Having the option to create customized email templates in SharpSpring lets you have full control on how your messages will appear in the inbox.
This article will detail how to create a custom simple or designer email template.
Regarding Email Creation
To create an email in SharpSpring, you must first start with a template. Though using either a created template or an existing template is up to you, emails can only be created by using a template.
For more information on the email creation process after creating a template, refer to the following articles:
Creating Templates in SharpSpring
To create an email template in SharpSpring, do the following:
Once saved, you can begin creating individual emails. Be aware that created email templates in SharpSpring are set, by default, to 720px wide.
Important: When using the Send Settings option group, the Email Name will auto-fill into the Subject field. Be sure to change it, as the email name is for internal use only.
Note: For best results when modifying layouts, first drag simple layout blocks into your email before dragging element blocks into that layout section.
Note: To remove a theme color in the Theme Styles menu, click the Erase icon next to the color box.
While SharpSpring does not have any specific image size requirements for email templates, consider it best practice to keep image file sizes as small as possible. This helps to facilitate quick downloads.
A Note on the Email Template Designer
The email designer takes any of the styles in the HTML for Email Standard Styles, pulls them into the database, and removes them from the HTML. Do not be alarmed when these styles are removed from the HTML in the View Code mode.

Note: SharpSpring offers Professional Services to assist with custom coding.
Use these styles to ensure that your desired global styles are brought in by the email designer. If you make a template outside the SharpSpring application and import it, you will need to put styles in the head.
