Changing Email Template Default Font, Color, Padding, and Border Settings

Using the Visual Template Designer, you can change some of the default styles of a Responsys email template using the Settings panel. Default style settings include:

  • Color: Choose the background color and canvas color. Learn more about these background settings.
  • Canvas Width: Select the canvas width for your email in pixels (600px, 756px, 900px, or 1080px). The default width is 600px width. When a width is selected, the canvas automatically resizes, with layout blocks and content adjusting accordingly. Each size is responsive and fully supported.
  • Text Defaults: Choose the default font and font color of email copy.
  • Hyperlink Defaults: Choose the default color of links.
  • Advanced Styles: Add your own web font, or control other advanced CSS styling, to meet your brand needs.
