Are you looking for newsletter templates to send from your WordPress website?

If you’ve got a website, you probably already know that a newsletter is a great way to engage with your audience and grow your business.

Instead, with Newsletter Glue, you can keep all your subscribers, segments and tags in your email service, connect it to WordPress and use our beautiful WordPress newsletter templates. It’s easier and quicker.

What makes newsletter templates in Newsletter Glue different?

WordPress newsletter templates in Newsletter Glue are different in that you can make any one of the templates an active template. This means the template will automatically load every time you create a new newsletter. No more fiddling around manually adding patterns into each newsletter.

set newsletter template as active

You can even add your own content and colors to one of our default templates and save it as an active template. So the next time you create a newsletter, the template will be pre-populated with your colors and style, and you will only need to fill the placeholders.

This is a time-saving feature and our users have reported saving an hour or more per newsletter by using the templates and the editor they are already familiar with.  

Create newsletters in WordPress using Newsletter Glue templates

After you’ve installed and connected Newsletter Glue to one of the ESPs, go to Newsletters > Templates & Styles and under the Templates tab, hover over each of the templates and click on View email preview

This will open a preview window in a new tab where you can see how the template looks on desktop and mobile. You can also see the HTML code underlying the template if you want to.

After you’ve made up your mind with one of the templates, click the Edit button. You’ll see a notification message asking if you want to edit the default template or duplicate it instead.

We recommend duplicating the template rather than editing the default so that you can always refer back to it.

After you’ve duplicated a template, hover over it and click the Edit button to open it. The template will open in the WordPress block editor where you can delete the dummy content and replace it with blank placeholders. You can also change the colors, logo, social icons, and address to that of your brand. Preview the template to check if everything is as it should be and click on the Update button at the top.

Now again go back to Templates & Styles page and find the duplicated template we created and click on Set active template next to it. Now, whenever you open the editor to write the newsletter, the template with your brand style will load automatically.
