Basic Branding How-To

Today’s post is all about the basic steps that you’ll need to follow to brand your CakeMail site. We’ve included a quick primer below, but feel free to get in touch with our support team to ask a question, or check our support knowledge base for more details.

Because CakeMail is white label, you get to use your own brand (and site design, if you wish) instead of ours. Our basic branding functionality allows you to quickly brand your site by uploading your own logo and setting a color scheme.

Site Logo
Here you will have the option to upload your site logo.
Click on the browse button to search for the image on your computer.

  • Accepted formats include jpg, non-animated gifs and png files no larger than 1MB.
  • Recommended file size is 300px wide X 100px tall. Larger images will be resized to fit within these dimensions.

A favicon is the small icon for a site displayed in the address bar of your web browser.

Click on the browse button to search for the image on your computer.

If you don’t have one yet, you can generate a favicon based on your site logo by clicking on Generate favicon from logo at the top of the page.

Color Options
At the bottom of the page you will see a section that allows you to set some basic colors for your site.

If you already have a set of corporate colors to use, you can enter their #hex values or select a color via the color-picker by clicking on the Color indicator to the right of the #HEX value.

You can also have your the colors of your logo determine the color scheme of your site. Click on Generate colors from logo at the top of the page and the color options will be automatically populated.

Check back next week when we talk about Advanced Branding options!
