Tips & Warnings

  • Sticking with a basic black font in a 10pt or 12pt size will give your emails the most professional look.
  • Your color and font selections may not work with all web browsers and could be hard for your recipients to see. Avoid using pastel colors and small fonts that make your messages difficult to read.
