Pulse+IT does not provide any definitive specifications for our eDM service; ultimately it’s your HTML email or MailChimp template — we just send it.

However it is suggested that the email artwork doesn’t exceed 600 pixels in width and doesn’t include any unsubscribe links or other ‘why did you get this email’ information as we add this ourselves.

Testing your artwork in MailChimp

Pulse+IT uses MailChimp as our eNewsletter software and while you don't need to build your eDM in MailChimp, it is a requirement that you test your HTML file in MailChimp before submitting it to Pulse+IT to avoid artwork resubmission charges. If your eDM artwork needs to be re-submitted due to problems with your HTML file or MailChimp template or if changes are required to be made by Pulse+IT staff, an administration fee of $100+GST will be charged for each revision.

Submitting to Pulse+IT

When supplying the HTML file to Pulse+IT, you can either include the images within a zipped folder and email this to us, or host these images yourselves and have the HTML file you supply us with link to them on your server.

Please submit the following at file least three days prior to your eDM date to give us enough time to send you a test eDM:

  1. Email subject line
  2. The HTML file / zipped archive
  3. Your mailing list criteria

eDM files should be emailed to hello@pulseit.news

As we are generally booked out, if artwork is supplied late, an administration fee of $100+GST will be charged on each occasion.
