How To Set Email Branding
On the Settings page, click Branding.
The menus on the Email Designer tab enable you to change the following default settings:
You can set custom colors by either changing the existing colors or by adding additional colors in the empty color boxes provided.
- Click the + icon or the current color displayed in a color box
- Select your color or add your HEX / RGB code

- Click Add
Once you've selected and saved your default colors, they are displayed in the color pickers for text, buttons, and backgrounds in the Email Designer.
You can learn more about formatting text in the Email Designer here.
We recommend limiting your palette to primary, secondary, and text colors (black, grey, white, and links).
Select your organization's default Primary Font and Secondary Font. If you have already configured any custom fonts, this is where you are able to select them as defaults.
Please note that due to licensing agreements, we may not be able to fulfill all custom font requests.
