Create a branded email

  1. On your computer, go to Gmail.
  2. In the top left, click Compose .
  3. At the bottom of the window, click Layouts .
  4. If you haven’t used layouts before, click Customize styling.
  5. Enter details to build your design. You can customize your layout with:
    • Logos
    • Colors
    • Fonts
    • Footer Details
    • Links
  6. After you change your preferences, click Save & continue.
    • Style changes only affect your new email layout.
    Tip: You can include your business name and address in the footer details.
  7. Select a layout.
  8. Click Insert.
  9. After you add the layout to the body of the email, you can add text and images or remove sections you don’t want.
    • If you include a button, make sure you set a link for the button.
    • If you add images, Google recommends you include alt text in case an image is not rendered. Alt text also helps people who use screen readers better understand your branded email.
