Some of the most common questions we get here at Swiftpage are about template size and specs. Below are some guidelines to keep in mind when you are creating and editing your Swiftpage Connect email templates.

Total width of the template: 600 pixels
Header size: 600 pixels wide, 72DPI, no more than a 50K file size

Vertical Space: Up to 23 Swiftwindows per column, virtually unlimited text (keep in mind that shorter is better for email)
Advanced Email Templates
Advanced email templates are a little different since you import HTML files you have created on your own. We highly recommend that you use a professional HTML software such as Adobe Dreamweaver to create custom HTML templates. Click here to review the Swiftpage HTML Designer’s Guide to Email Templates. Below are a few general guidelines we recommend when creating your own HTML email template.
Standard Template Size: Industry standard is 600-650 pixels wide
Image Sizes: 72 DPI, no more than 50K file size
Background Images: Not supported by Swiftpage or most email clients
Layout: Use tables for the layout instead of DIV tags
Style Sheets: Avoid linking to external style sheets. Use inline CSS instead.
