    Im a cmyk man born and bred - done a bit of rgb in my time - but enough to know if you know what i mean.

    Im wanting to create an e-flyer to email out to various clients.

    Any suggestions on how to do this?

    Was thinking of just an attached pdf - but thought - if hmv can do it - then why can't i..


    Cheers.

    Best bet is design it in photoshop ( I normally stick to about 600px wide for emails), then slice it up and save as images/html (if you can cut out a large slice where you text is so you can paste it in in dreamweaver - or whatever you use, rather than being solely images).

    Upload the images/html to your webserver / goto the page in safari / click on file>mail contents of this page - then it should put the webpage you've created into mail and you can send as html. Best bet is make all references to images absolute urls so like <img src="http :// yoururl.com/images/picture1.gif" >

    You can also do the same thing on a PC using internet explorer / outlook. Unfortunately it only works with either safari/mail or IE/outlook.

    Other than that you could have to use something like mailchimp to send it out

    I would definitely avoid the attachment route - as crazy as it may sound, getting someone to go to the effort of opening your attachment is too much for them.
    Also, be aware that any HTML/graphic email needs a good old fashioned text introduction/reason for them to 'display images' in your email and see it how you intended them to.
     
  4. you have big time chances of being caught by an anti-spam filter.
    my best tip is sending only html text + link to your eflyer.

    I would produce a HTML version rather than an actual attachment.

    If you see an attachment most people will just delete the e-mail without actually opening it.
