Containing responsive templates for multiple industries including retail and finance, Graphic Mail offers a varying selection of email templates. There are multiple service plans for those that wish to leverage Graphic Mail and the lowest start at $9.95.
Big, robust email solutions offer companies a lot of great features that, if used properly, can turn a drab email into something special. However, many companies simply do not have the time to spend figuring out these complicated solutions. Toddle offers companies 10 newsletter templates and a simple editor to personalize their emails. Each newsletter costs $9 or companies can buy a yearlong subscription for $240.
Sometimes pre-made email templates do not fit the form that companies need them to. Along with such templates, Digital Glare offers to make companies their own custom designed emails for a price of $480.

Even though templates help to accelerate the design process, there are some companies that may not have the time to customize them to their full potential.
