All public page customization settings are found on the Look & Feel tab, under Settings > Customize page, on the admin navbar.

Depending on which subscription tier you're on, you'll have access to a different level of customization. Below is a breakdown of where the additional themes and customization options are available at each subscription tier:


  • Custom Email branding


  • CSS Customization: Full control over the CSS customization of your LaunchNotes page

  • Design customization: Full control over the color palette of your LaunchNotes page


  • CSS & HTML Customization: Full control over the look and feel of your LaunchNotes page.

Logo and color scheme customization

On all subscription tiers, you'll have the ability to host your own Logo and Favicon your page, select the layout Density (Compact, Normal or Comfortable), and choose a Design Theme, which allows you to pick from a series of preset color themes.
