The quick way is too scan it as a JPG and scale it to fit the 600 px footprint of the email templates.
The correct way would be to convert it using either HTML or the CTCT editor environment.

This is the issue I am having. When I convert the pdf to jpg the sizes are too small and blurry. Any other ways of doing this? I have to take the newsletter which is in pdf and send it as part of the e-mail blast.
The nature of the JPG file format will cause data to be removed, its the way the .JPG format stores its data called lossy compression. As such its not a great conversion tool for this application.
If you want I can try some things for you. Send the PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll try something's that I usually try. Not seeing the PDF file I can't promise you anything but I'd like the challenge.

Thnk you for your answer to the question of being able to use a pdf as the actual message. I have a need to do just that, use the exact pdf as the actual message. Boy, it would be SO great if we could do that!!
I see you mentioned that the pdf would need to be converted, and by that I am guessing you mean created, as I am not aware of a pdf to HXTML converter. I am so rusty with HTML as to be virtually useless with it. I know CC offers their services to create a custom template for us, but I can't do that due to budget constraints.
Do you have any advice on how that could be done? Are there any super easy XHTML 'programs' out there?
Thanks in advance,
You can actually convert your PDF to a JPG using this free website, Neevia. Then you can save your JPG and then upload it into your email. Just make sure you do have some text in your email as well. Many spammers send out only images and we don't want your email to get blocked by filters because they think it's "spam".
Hope that helps!
When doing that is there a specific template you recommend in order to upload the JPG to be most of your email, barring some text to prevent filtering?
I would suggest you use our Business Letters Basic template and add your image to the Company logo block.
I hope this helps,
