Adding personal Stationery

I’ve created my own Stationery with some text and a background which I would like to use for my messages. However, I don’t see any options in the Stationery dialog to add my own Stationery.

How can I add it to Outlook so I can select it?

Stationery buttonIn order to see your personal Stationery in the Stationery list, you’ll have to add it to your personal Stationery folder first.

There is a nice trick in Outlook which allows you easy access to your personal Stationery folder by holding CTRL while clicking on the “Stationery and Fonts…” button in the Options dialog of Outlook.

Opening the personal Stationery folder

The personal Stationery folder can be found in the following (hidden) location:
C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Stationery

As mentioned, you can also open it directly from within Outlook’s Options dialog in the following way:

  • Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016
    File-> section Options-> section Mail-> hold CTRL while clicking on the button: Stationery and Fonts…
  • Outlook 2007
    Tools-> Options…-> tab Mail Format-> hold CTRL while clicking on the button: Stationery and Fonts…
  • Outlook 2003 and previous
    Tools-> Options…-> tab Mail Format-> hold CTRL while clicking on the button: Stationery Picker…

Hold CTRL when clicking on the "Stationery and Fonts" button to open the Stationery folder.

Copy all files into the Stationery folder

After that, simply copy your .htm or .html file of your stationery together with the images/background you have used for it into that folder and it should now be selectable as stationery in Outlook.

The name of your htm-file will be used as the display name for the Stationery in the Stationery Picker dialog.
