Gmail does not provide its users with the tools for building Gmail HTML email templates. Hence, you need to find a third-party tool. But Gmail wouldn't let you just insert the HTML code that the third-party tool provided you with. 

It was a problem before Stripo.

Now Stripo is one of the few email editors that let you design proper HTML email templates for Gmail (or you can choose any from our template library) and then export them to this email client with just two simple clicks!

What else makes Stripo useful when it comes to building Gmail email templates?

1. We offer a wide variety of ready-to-use Gmail email templates

Creating emails with Stripo is as simple as that. Choose any Gmail email templates in the templates section, customize them, and your email is ready to go! Any Gmail template that you've created with us is editable after export.

Once you send template from Stripo to your Gmail account, you can find it in the Drafts folder.

Click on it, and the Compose window will open. You can edit your template and edit/add a subject line.

You can delete templates from your Google account at any time.

2. Stripo's interactive elements for Gmail email templates work well in Google

Interactive elements like countdown timers, image rollover effect, and anchor links that you add to your own email templates in Gmail work pretty well.

3. We enable our users to build AMP emails for Gmail without coding skills

You can make some AMP components — content accordions and image carousel — by pulling respective blocks into email templates in Gmail. There is no need to add any scripts to work with the code — Stripo does it all for you.

Also, Stripo offers various game mechanics for your Gmail templates. Add games to your emails to let users have fun.

Important to note:

AMP emails work both on desktop devices and mobile phones.

4. We enable you to equip Gmail email templates with promo annotations right in the editor

Quite often, promo emails get delivered to the “Promotions tab.” To make them noticeable on a mobile phone, you may add the “Annotation” to them. Gmail will show the duration of your sale, the promo image, and the discount amount. 

Build Gmail promo annotations easily with Stripo — make your emails stand out in users’ inboxes.

Important to note:

This feature is meant for mobile devices only.

5. We let you preview your Gmail email design across all versions of Gmail

Not only do email clients have their rendering rules, but different devices do, too.

This is why it is necessary to preview your emails across all versions of Gmail on all possible devices.

You can do it with our embedded email testing tool.

6. We enable our users to export their saved Gmail email templates easily

You can export your email templates to Gmail with just two clicks. Never been easier!

You'll find it in the "Draft" folder. Simply insert proper names into the address line. And your email is ready to be sent!

You can save draft as template for further use and send it whenever you need it. Or even schedule your bulk email campaign. Speaking of which...

7. Bulk Gmail HTML email templates

Did you know that you don't need to have a premium plan to be allowed to send mass emails in Gmail?

You can send your Gmail templates to up to 500 contacts a day for free and to 5000 contacts at once if you have a premium plan.

8. We enable Modular Email Architecture for Gmail HTML email templates

We know that creating similar emails every single day is arduous routine work. To help our clients avoid it, we invented the “Modular Email Design.”

You simply save email elements to the library and Drag-and-Drop them into the Gmail email template whenever you need them. For your convenience, we even sorted them into groups: content, footer, header, etc.
