Email Stationery

Why do professionals, companies and organizations spend so much money on their logos, colors and branding and then send text emails? Would they send a letter on plain paper? Of course not.

So given the option of sending a plain text email with no personality whatsoever or sending an email that makes a positive impact each and every time, why do people still send ugly email?

This is a blatant product placement as I co-founded a company called inboxFX Communications Inc. that creates customized email stationery for virtually any type of business or professional.

This is a plain text and ugly email. Plain Text Email Sample

These are attractive, eye-catching professional emails using inboxFX email stationery:

Top 5 Reasons To Use Email Stationery

Conflict of Interest Alert!

If you have been reading this blog in the past you know I have a vested interest in email stationery through inboxFX Communications Inc (click on link above for more information).

That disclosure out of the way, the reason I went into the email stationery business in the first place was to fill the marketing and branding void that has been created by email and I feel strongly that businesses are missing a great opportunity to reinforce their brand with every email.

We brand our letterhead, business cards, web site, brochures, invoices, memo pads and even pens, but when we use the most common form of communication with our clients and prospects we send plain, ugly, text email. While this seems to be acceptable it doesn’t make it right! Can you guess which email is the ugly one?

    Hi Mike
    How would it work if I read about your email stationery prior to October 15th?
    You and I have spoken many times regarding my situation in real estate. This stationery sounds interesting. I would also like to know how much you would charge to come up with a tag line and theme for my marketing.
    What would the break down rates be for these ?
    Regards,
