What is the size of an email banner?

The width for an email banner can be anywhere from 600 px to 800 px. Before you decide on the width, it’s important to test the email to see how it's going to look in different email clients and devices. There are no restrictions when it comes to height, but if you want to keep it above the fold, then the height should be between 300 and 500 px.

How long should an email animated banner be?

Your animated email banner, also called a hero or a header, should be only a few seconds long and up to a maximum of 200-250 kb. Try to stick to these recommendations to make sure it will load even when someone has a poor internet connection. The header is the first thing a reader will see, so use our GIF maker to manage those seconds wisely. 

What is the best font for email headers?

Among the most popular sans serif fonts you can use are Georgia, Verdana, Baskerville, Arial, Tahoma, Vollkorn, Trebuchet MS, Lato, Helvetica, Roboto, and Futura. When designing your email header, it is recommended to use sans-serif fonts, which are more suitable for the digital space. Sans-serif fonts don’t have a decorative line at the end of every symbol, making them readable on both desktop and mobile devices.
