Our Most Loved List of Email Templates – June

Category : Email Inspirations

As a part of our series, Monks are back with some of the most graceful emails in our inbox during the month of June. June is a pretty lax month for email marketers as they only need to prepare for American Independence Day (July 4th) and summer sales in rest of the world. Without much further ado, let’s have a look at the spectacular set of email templates that delighted the Monks.
