Hmmm, this is what happens when you upload a photo from your phone and never go back to see what it looked like. Sorry for the dirt.

Perfect timing. I think I'll use this.
L. Brent Gilmore originally shared:
 
Google Apps Script for HTML email with Google Maps API plug-in

After sending the email I've had a number of requests to explain how. So....

My wife and I recently moved into a new house. We needed to send an address update to our contact list but didn't want to go through a printer then stuffing, sealing, stamping and writing out addresses. Given my love of all things Google and my new found curiosity of Google Apps Scripts I wanted to use a Script to:
- Send and HTML email; nice design and picture of the house
- Email our entire contact list in one send
- I wanted it to be free and send from my personal email address
- Use personalization; Dear William
- Google Maps integration

Queue a Google Apps Script and the deign stylings of my buddy +William Hodges. With the script I was able to:
- Create a custom HTML design
- Email our entire list from my Gmail account
- Include personalization
- Provide a Google Map and driving directions from the recipients address to our new address

It turned out great and was extremely simple. If you can type you can send a custom HTML email in minutes (screencaps attached).

If you want the Gdoc Spreadsheet with the script, grab it here:
