Customizing the Newsletter Subscription Message (Blueprint)

These instructions apply to our free, legacy Blueprint themes that have not been customized. The BigCommerce Support Team may not be able to assist with issues that occur after applying them to a previously customized theme. As always, we recommend backing up your current theme customizations before making any changes.
