Yahoo Mail offers stationery so you can spice up your email messages instantly and easily. The many designs, which include themes such as birthdays, seasonal greetings, thank-yous, and more, are completely free for your use. Here's how to select and apply stationery to your message.

  1. Select Compose in the main Yahoo email screen.

  3. From the new menu that shows along the bottom of the message window, select your stationery. Use the arrows on the left and right of the menu to cycle through the choices; pick a category from the left to see more.

    You can try different stationery styles without affecting any text you've typed in your message already.

You can apply stationery after you've already typed in text for the message; there's no need to start from scratch. This allows you to see how your message would look with a given stationery style before you send it.

Changed Your Mind?

To remove the stationery without deleting your message, select Clear Stationery at the right side of the message (at the top of the stationery menu), or choose None in the left-hand corner.
