How to Use Emoji on Your Computer

After we sent out our emoji-tastic newsletter earlier this week, I've gotten quite a few questions about how the heck we got so many emoji in there. It's quite simple! There's a super quick way to access all the emoji goodness you love using on your iPhone from your computer. 

Ready? Let's get started ๐Ÿ˜

Sorry, my PC friends! I don't own or use a PC, and this how-to is for Mac users! I'm actually not sure how to access emoji on a PC. I'd suggest... Googling it or using a website like Get Emoji to copy and paste the character you want.
