How wide should I make my email template?

Whenever you create a Broadcast in your list you have the option to select a template. All AWeber templates are 600 pixels wide by design. We do this for several reasons.


All email providers render HTML in a slightly different way. By keeping all of our templates the same width, we are able to provide the most consistent experience across all platforms.


As your subscribers will be accessing these messages on their desktop, laptop, mobile device, or tablet, we keep our templates the same width. This provides an easy-to-read format that is the same for all of your messages regardless of the device used to view them.


A message can be read on any number of devices and mail app programs. To provide the best experience across these different services, we use something called a media query to adjust our templates. As our templates are mobile-responsive, the consistent 600 pixel width gives our designers the ability to standardize their media query settings.


AWeber offers hundreds of templates you’re welcome to use! If you would ever find yourself wanting to modify an existing template or would like a custom template built for you to reflect your branding, our Template Team would be happy to modify existing templates or design a custom template for you!
