I'd like to talk to someone about having animation within the body of the email. We currently use another client and I'd like to see if it was possible to incorporate within Emma instead. Can someone contact us?

Hello! 

Feel free to give us a call at 1 888-493-2525 between 5 AM - 7 PM CST for more immediate assistance if you prefer a phone call.

We support GIFs in our mailings with the suggested specifications being the following:

Make sure it's 10 frames or less (more CAN work, but 10 is a good number to shoot for)Make sure it's no larger than 1280px wide.
This typically allows for a slide show of images within your mailing. 

One of our writers, Mckenzie wrote an awesome article on this here:

Feel free to have a look for some more context!

I hope this helps point you in the right direction.

Cheers,

Zach

Thanks for reaching out Zach - in the past we have used greenvelope.com to provide an automated card. We simply upload the designated size card we want. they provide and envelope and they put the animation together with the envelope opening and the card being revealed. The cool thing is the card can be addressed and with multiple variable fields which allow for a personal touch. I'd love to send a sample so you could see it and see if the process could be done within emma.

Awesome!

I would suggest reaching out to Greenvelope to see what file formats they offer and how it would be included in an email. We would be able to see if it would work in a mailing once we understand exactly how it would be included from that point.

Many HTML elements and .gif images will work, however, Javascript pieces would not.

We would just need a bit more information on how exactly the animation is coming in from Greenvelope and i'd be able to see what we can make work!

Thanks!

Zach
