Virtual backgrounds to show off your email geek pride on Zoom and Teams


Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us have made the switch from working in an office to working from home. This has presented many opportunities, from reduced commute times to guest appearances on Zoom or Microsoft Teams—from kids, pets, spouses, and guests galore.

While these appearances can add much needed comic relief to our work day, sometimes we could use some help concealing what’s around us. Perhaps you haven’t had a chance to tidy the clutter behind you. Or maybe you’re looking to add an element of surprise to your next virtual meeting (because Zoom fatigue). That’s where virtual backgrounds come in.

These virtual meeting backgrounds are made just for #EmailGeeks. Use them to show your love for the email community and bring some color to your surroundings. From us, to you.
