Why send an email with plain, boring text when you can spice it up instantly with stationary? Yahoo Mail includes several that you can choose from, and all of them are 100% free to use.

Just type some text and choose a style to instantly apply a birthday, seasonal, thank you, or other fun stationery to your message.

Send an Email Using Stationery in Yahoo Mail

  1. Start with a new email using rich text formatting.
    1. Note: You can also apply stationery after you've already typed in text for the message; there's no need to start from scratch. In fact, it might even be easier to see a style's effect with text already present.
  2. From the toolbar at the bottom of the message, click or tap the Add Stationery template button. Its icon is a box with a heart inside.
  3. From the new menu that shows just above the toolbar, select any of the styles. Use the arrows on the left and right of the menu to cycle through them, and pick a category from the left to see other stationery.
    1. Note: You can try different stationery styles using the same message, and any text you've already typed will not be affected.
    2. Tip: To remove the stationary without deleting the whole message, just use the Clear Stationery button at the bottom right side of the message or choose None from the stationery menu.
  4. Continue composing the message and then send it to you normally would.
