Stationery formats only the page background.
Your choice of stationery does not control your default message font; you must set that
separately, as previously discussed in this topic. If you choose to use stationery (and I’d
caution you to make this choice judiciously), take care to choose a font color that is
visible against the stationery background and also visible to recipients who choose to block
graphic elements of email messages. For example, it might be tempting to use clean
white lettering against the brown background of the Jungle stationery, but for recipients
who block graphics, the message will display white lettering on a white background—in
other words, the message will appear to be blank.
If you prefer to apply thematic elements on an individual message basis, you can apply
global formatting options—by using themes and style sets—with only a couple of clicks.
