Swatches 2 is a updated, responsive take on my older Swatches template. Swatches 2 is a clean, colorful, responsive html email template great for newsletters, catalogs, marketing, and announcements. Swatches 2 includes six prebuilt templates, each with seven color options. In addition to standard HTML templates Swatches 2 includes special versions for Campaign Monitor and MailChimp.
