A designer has created a newsletter in Adobe Illustrator. I need to convert that to HTML for embedding in MailChimp.

 

Is there no option to export an .ai file to .html ?

Mail applications might still be very peculiar concerning the use of HTML in them. One can't do this and the other can't do that.

 

MailChimp should have templates. I would use them, because they have been built with e-mail in mind.

The designer created a unique design for the mailer. Mailchimp has pre-made templates which we are not using.

You NEED to use a specialist tool for making email PDF. Mailchimp or something like it. A big mistake may have been made in using the wrong tool, and someone may have to start again. The design needs to be light and simple, and work for to 75% or more people who have images off in email.

Email clients require somewhat of a legacy html/inline-styled recipe. There is no one-step conversion from Illustrator. The designer did not use the correct tool for the target output. The Illustrator artwork can be used, but someone who knows how will have to place it piece-by-piece into an email-suitable html/inline CSS layout.
