Leesa

Yellow and orange take center stage in this ombre Labor Day email from Leesa, fading into dark blue to create a more solid background for text about product details. The wavy lines separating each section of the email are reminiscent of the ocean and help create a summer-y feel. Labor Day is generally regarded as the end of summer, and making your design choices accordingly can help you go out with a splash.

Subject line: One more weekend of Labor Day deals 😎

Milk Makeup

When it comes to email marketing (or any type of marketing), it’s important to put yourself in your audience’s shoes and think about how they’re feeling. Milk Makeup hits the nail on the head with this Labor Day email sent on Monday morning: They knew their customers would probably be feeling disappointed that the long weekend was already almost over and it was time to go back to work. So Milk sweetened the pot with this psychedelic email offering a free gift with every $35+ purchase.

Subject line: HAPPY LABOR DAY

Subject line: FINAL HOURS // Labor Day sale!

I Dew Care

Skincare brand I Dew Care created this colorful email to advertise its Labor Day sales. All of the important information is included above the fold so readers will immediately understand the offer. Then I Dew Care added a flashy GIF before moving on to individual product CTAs.

The color and font choices in this message also create a playful feel, which is perfect for PupBox’s audience of dog owners.
