I've got a opted in contact list of ~50,000 people. We send out emails several times a month. It's providing us good results so far. The only thing I just really don't like it the template we're using.

1. One of the sites I runs actually just attaches a graphic with all the information on it. That's great because it's visually good, but for text only clients and on mobile devices, it makes for some hard reading.

2. The other site I manage, the template just looks...blah. It looks like it was done in 1996. I need something new and innovative looking.

Is there a place I can go online where I can find email newsletter templates or whatnot?

You might ask on here..

Lorenz and the team are experts on all this sort of thing. They might be able to do something for you.

I have no real experience with email templates, but I did a search for "email templates for newsletters" on Google, and found quite a few options.

We don't tend to use templates because they almost never lend themselves to the clients house style and modifying them is almost more of a pain than creating them from scratch in Photoshop, slicing them up, running them through DreamWeaver, et voila: custom email newsletter...

I think that is a good idea lorenz has given...sometimes doing or own things works best as then the design is up to your satisfaction and your needs..keeping in mind the trendy design you r looking for...

Thanks for the help. I honestly should know better and just design the darn thing myself. I mean...its just some simple html coding!

I should probably (and I will) write a post about my client...maybe then you guys will understand! :P
