Whats the best service for using/making attractive email templates?

We've used Mailchimp and Autopilot and neither we're really nice enough to use or allowed us to make really nice looking emails (we're about to launch some new features and wanna do a nice announcement email). Looking for something with either really nice templates or a good builder with good features!

    Postcards is an app that allows users to create responsive HTML emails in a short period with over 70 premade templates. Postcards also gives a preview of the final result and allows users to export an unlimited number of emails. Some features: Drag & drop builder Edit the content online Upload or use external images Preview the result Unlimited exports Postcards has clean HTML code and works with any ESP (email service provider) platform.
    I really like working in Postcards, it has a very friendly UI and it saves us a lot of time creating our newsletters.
    I have tested the demo version, looks good.

    Have since tried Intercom and it's pretty close to what I was after! The emails are good looking and automatically work on mobile and desktop. Also has really nice audience filtering and analytics.

    Quickly craft clean, responsive emails.

    Here's a lower level one for developers. They explain it better than I can: "HEML is an open source markup language for building responsive email. It gives you the native power of HTML without having to deal with all of the email quirks."

    MJML App

    The only app that makes responsive email easy

    Emily Brooke RobertsonDirector of Digital Marketing at Sporfie · Written
    The best/easiest way we have found to create templates and allow for quick edits by anyone on your team. Because mjml is similar to markdown or basic html, edits can be quickly implemented by marketers with very little effort or training. I had a lot of trouble trying to create the look I wanted using existing email templates/template builders. Now, with MJML, I feel like I am an email expert and can get new emails created and sent in a fraction of the time.
    It might require a bit of extra effort from the engineers but the upside is that there is no lock in with MJML. You can continue to use the email delivery system of your choice.

    Drift Email for Marketing

    Turn email into engaging conversations to close leads faster

    Hi James, I'd argue instead of wasting too much time on templates and optimizing for clicks, you could put the emphasis into the email copy and telling the story of your product launch. Your leads probably don't care about color schemes or how nice your emails look. They care about how your product can help them do their job. As it happens we just launched Drift Email for Marketing and we even have a pre-packaged Playbook to help you share your product launch news. More details: blog.drift.com/drift-email-marketing happy to chat more about it if you'd like.

    Have tried most solutions and I believe MailerLite's builder and templates are currently the best out there.

    I like Bee (they have a great free version) this is for designing the HTML email and then importing it into your sender of choice (Mailchimp, etc.). Also like Topol.io as someone else mentioned. They also send great newsletters with ideas and examples of great emails.

    If you want the best custom branding and design, you should work with a designer and a developer to code a custom template. You can then have the template implemented into Blocks Edit for an editable, drag and drop editor for you and your team to review and edit content and build out new emails without having to code them.
