Design Tips for Your Back-to-School Email Template
You should keep the back-to-school theme throughout your email template. Be creative and make your template unique. Use your brand images, colors, or fonts.
To catch the attention of your subscribers, the design should be eye-catching.
Here’s how to achieve that.
Use school-themed photos
You can use your brand and product images or user-generated content. If you need free stock images, Unsplash has an enormous gallery you can choose from.
To change the images in your template, use the free Unsplash integration.
- Click to change the image.
- Select Loopify Free Content from the drop-down menu.
- Type in any keyword in the search bar to find specific images, like school supplies.
You can use other keywords here, like school, books, back-to-school, etc.
Add an appealing color palette
You can make your template more fun or neutral, depending on what you want to achieve. Feel free to change the colors of your template to match your style.
A helpful tip is to use a color palette generator so that you know that your colors complement each other.
Take any image you’ll use for your campaign and extract its colors. This will make your design consistent throughout the entire campaign.
Below I took some images from Unsplash and uploaded them to Canva’s color palette generator, and voilà!
Once you create the palette you love, you can copy the hex code for each color and add it under your brand styles in Loopify.
Then you can easily access those colors from your template or campaign and change the color of text, buttons, links, and borders.
Use emojis that evoke the school spirit
Emojis can make your subject line stand out. However, don’t go overboard. A couple of emojis are enough to draw attention; anything more than that is just tacky and takes the focus away from the message.
You can also choose from a bunch of school-related emojis for your template like these, 🎒 🏫 ✏️ 🍎 💻 📚 🧑🏫 📋 📓.
Remember, you shouldn’t replace words with emojis. Emojis can break in some email clients and make your message confusing for your subscribers.
