Please help with this beautiful newletter

Good evening,

I got this email from Our Sunday Visitor. I like it a lot but don't know how they do it so beautiful. Can someone tell me how they do it? Sorry, i don't have a lot of experience but am willing to learn.

Thank you, Lucy

Setting boundaries on campus

By Emily Stimpson

Last fall, Catholic University made the decidedly counter-cultural announcement that beginning in the 2011-12 school year, its two-decade-old policy of coed residence halls would come to an end. That decision has reopened a discussion that many in the world of higher education believed had long since ended, namely: Is there value to single-sex living on college campuses?

Critics of Catholic University’s decision say “no,” that single-sex housing is a relic of a time when women’s educational and professional opportunities were severely limited by social mores and, as such, should be left in the past.

Hi! This is Cathy from Our Sunday Visitor. Thank you for the compliment!

Our enewsletter was designed specially for us; we do not use a Constant Contact template for it. (Although we do use the templates for many other emails.)

Thanks again!

Re: Please help with this beautiful newletter

The enewsletter is created in Dreamweaver (graphics are done in Photoshop) and we copy the code to Constant Contact.

Thanks for your interest!


Re: Please help with this beautiful newletter

Hi -

Where do you find the code to copy to CC?

It seems more effective and easier to create newsletters in another program and then upload to CC, as CC templates don't offer flexibility for customization. Does anyone agree?

We had an outside designer create the email design and provide us with the 'template' code.
