Why are people choosing Chamaileon over Stensul?
Less is more
Chamaileon gives you the power to build your own email blocks without coding and control every step of your email creation within one application.
Using Stensul means you create (1) email design plans then the (2) email design agency codes email blocks and (3) they give you a tool to rearrange email blocks for each campaign. For new blocks – you need to ask and wait.
Chamaileon puts control back over email creation to your team without extra knowledge. This reduces time to market for emails like never before.
While Stensul’s interface is simple and clean enough for marketers, designers lack the flexibility to change the look and feel of the company’s emails or creating new sections on-demand quickly.
Chamaileon truly revolutionizes email creation. Team members have the power to make any changes in real-time and get feedback using a simple email builder interface that’s clean & easy to navigate.
Stensul’s model is a traditional client-agency ping-pong revised and put under the skin of an application. This incurs higher costs, slower processes, and high dependency on the service team.
Can Chamaileon really replace email coding and all the templating tools at all?
Chamaileon is built for your entire email design production workflow. Create and collaborate on a template. Define modular blocks. Share a link to your design or campaign preview. Gather feedback via comments. And grab the highest-possible quality responsive email HTML code.

Grant your team(s) full control over email templates, modules, and content updates to get the job done faster than ever before.
Prior to Chamaileon, it made sense that I was creating blasts for our company since I’m a graphic designer. But that quickly became a heavy workload for me alone. Since Chamaileon allows for a multi-user/team environment, I was able to train other employees in this user-friendly space which ultimately helped lighten my heavy workload.
Easy Email Design I needed 🙏
I love that you don’t need to be a master coder to build a beautiful email. This platform is easy to work with and easy to customize for what your needs are. As someone who builds emails for multiple clients, it’s a game-changer.
I started using Chamaileon because [we] needed design/code only, no deployment. We also needed to be able to save templates and blocks within templates and to be able to manage multiple brands (sort of like an agency manages clients). Chamaileon helped me by addressing all of the above.
More on the differences between Stensul and Chamaileon
The email building process
Both platforms are centralized, scalable, replace email building & coding, and generate code automatically.
They are viable solutions for your everyday email production needs, helping you to craft on-brand emails that amaze recipients.
The key difference between the two platforms lies in the level of design control they allow enterprise designers and marketers to have. Chamaileon enables team members with the appropriate permission to create and update pre-designed email blocks at any time, while in Stensul every design change or new email module configuration requires the services team to step in (just like in a classical agency-client workflow).
Comparing costs and prices
Both Stensul’s and Chamaileon’s pricing includes a monthly subscription fee. At Stensul, there are additional costs that Chamaileon’s pricing doesn’t have.
Stensul charges extra for service work. In Stensul you have no freedom to change any aspect of the design (branded or not) or to create a new email module on your own. Whenever a change or a new module is required you have to pay Stensul extra service fees.
Chamaileon has a solid, transparent, user-based pricing that you can rely on and add to your budget easily. There are no service/ templating agency costs: A corporate designer can make any changes anytime without writing a single line of HTML code while marketers can be limited from making any unwanted changes to the design.
