I mean, they're nice templates but there are so many other free options worth considering too such as the Litmus community ones https://litmus.com/community/tem...

@td_evans great point, I've been using these for a while now, couldn't be happier with the results

@janklimo @td_evans So the litmus templates are just as responsive and just as compatible with email clients and browsers as the ones being sold at htmlemail.io?

@davelilly @td_evans I haven't used htmlemail.io so it would be nice to hear @leemunroe's thoughts on this. But Litmus is in the business of having perfectly responsive and compatible emails, so their stuff is pretty bullet proof. I've been basing all my campaigns on this https://github.com/rodriguezcomm... which I believe is the foundation of all the other free variations at Litmus, never had any issues.

@janklimo @td_evans Cool. Thanks, Jan. I hope you don't mind my asking, are you gonna buy this set or just continue using the other free litmus templates?
Thomas Evans — COO, EmailOctopus
@davelilly @janklimo Yes, the Litmus ones are all Litmus tested across pretty much all clients and are responsive. They're coded/designed by some of the team at Litmus, such as Kevin Mandeville. They link to the Litmus test once you click into the design.

@davelilly Sure, Dave. I'm happy with the free templates. They are responsive and compatible, have all the elements I need and editing them is easy. This is what I use as a starting point https://litmus.com/builder/c2337fe Good luck!

@td_evans Definitely, Litmus emails are solid. If you Google "responsive html email templates" you'll find a bunch of good free options (including one I've open sourced https://github.com/leemunroe/res...)

What I've tried to do with this set is bundle all the common templates together I see startups and developers needing and checking all the boxes like including retina images, social media icons, app store buttons, 6 column grid, mobile Gmail compatibility, bulletproof buttons, inlined CSS and stylesheet. All production ready. I'm sure you could add more to this list though :)

@janklimo @td_evans Thank you both! You two are super helpful! I'd love to send you two a seeport.net sticker (for Retina MacBook Pro) if you want one. Just send me a message with your addy.
@td_evans Thanks for the link! I have been literally struggling with responsive email templates for the past few days! I'll return the favor, I have been using befree and have been happy with it: http://beefree.io/

Thanks for the hunt Kevin. Lee here, the maker of http://HTMLemail.io Developing HTML email is hard. It's old skool. Making sure emails are responsive across all the major clients and devices is even harder. I put together this bundle for startups and developers as it features the most common email templates you need for any app or service. Integrate these into your system then get back to the more interesting stuff like shipping product and taking over the world.

@leemunroe Hey Lee! A little late to this hunt, but thanks for all the free email content you've put out. It's been super helpful on many occasions. Happy to see you putting out even more products. 👍

@leemunroe I would get this in a heart beat if your templates had schema.org support for gmail. Heartbeat!

@boris_gefter Thanks Boris, good request. I've captured this here so I don't forget.

I mentioned Gmail actions support in this blog post, which you might find useful. Is there a specific use case you had in mind?

@leemunroe awesome! Yes, I recently wrote about it here http://www.coltrane.com.au/bonus... - yes the calendar & review functionality is absolutely wicked!
