Changing the width of a single email requires editing the custom HTML version of the template. Note that this method requires basic HTML knowledge.


  • Clone the email template you want to use to file by navigating in HubSpot Marketing to Content > Design Manager

  • Locate and open your template. Click Actions Clone to file to access the HTML code for your template builder template.

  • Type "Ctrl+F" to and find all instances of the email body width token. Replace it with any # pixel value (for example: 500px).

  • Please note that if the width of an image or a table in an email is wider than the email body, the email body will automatically resize to fit the width of the image. To fix this, find where the width is defined in the code of the image and replace it with a smaller pixel value.
  • Click Save to save your changes in the template.
  • Navigate to Content > Email to create a new email with this template, or select an existing email and click on Settings > Swap Template to use your new template.
