Seashells Template

Grab “Seashells,” v2.0 of Our Free Responsive Email Template

Back in 2013, Email on Acid offered our first free responsive email template to help the email community move to responsive design as mobile readership was on the rise. Now with 82% of people using mobile phones to check their email, responsive design is a MUST for any successful email strategy (Google - "The Mobile Movement"). Our first template was so popular--with over 23,623 downloads (and counting)--that we’ve created a new, revamped version. In addition to all the new email features and functionality, our new “Seashells” template also includes MailChimp and Campaign Monitor versions, compatible with their WYSIWYG editors! If you already have an account with us or are a community member, you already have access to this template in our resources section! Simply log in and navigate to the resource center in the left navigation bar. If at any point you have issues with the download, contact our support team!  

Template details

There are a number of snazzy elements in the Seashells template, but most importantly, it’s been thoroughly tested within our platform to ensure it looks awesome in the most popular inboxes. Additional email features include:
  • Responsive design with 2 breakpoints
  • Hero image option
  • 6 different content block styles
  • Bulletproof buttons
  • Well-commented code
  • Campaign Monitor and MailChimp versions, custom built to work with their toolsets (including editable styles and text areas, and ready to go RSS feeds)
Your download also includes a version of the template with no inline styles, to make changing elements of the template easier. Once your modifications are made, just run it through a style inliner before you send. If you run into any email design or development issues, our resource center is just a click away. We’ve developed an entire library of email coding tips and tricks to lend a helping hand.

Put your QA process on overdrive

After you’ve customized your template, don't waste time trying to test and validate 40+ links and images in every email you send. Use our Link and Image Validator to do the job for you (and take a well-deserved meme browsing break to celebrate). What are you waiting for?
