How can I remove vertical padding from ionic icon?

Tags: html,css,web,ionic-framework,styling

Problem :

Here is my HTML :

<i class="icon ion-email notify-icon"></i>

and CSS:

.notify-icon {
  color: white;
  font-size: 35px;
  background-color: gray;
  padding: 0;

I set padding to 0 and it removes horizontal padding, but I still see 4-5px of gray padding on top and bottom. How can I solve it?

Solution: As I understood it is impossible to remove vertical padding, so I decided to replace ionic icon with image.

Solution :

Don't know why you want to use background color but if you wanted gray email icon with size 35px do this. Full implementation here

.notify-icon {
  color: gray;
  font-size: 35px;

Or if you wanted bordered icon use

 <i class="icon ion-ios-email-outline notify-icon2 ">


 .notify-icon2 {
  font-size: 35px;
