Snail Mail an Email! What a Great Idea…

07/27/2011

Snail Mail My Email is a month-long project that aims to bring back the uplifting feeling of receiving an actual hand-written letter. They’re literally transcribing your emails to deliver handwritten notes to the recipient – and hopefully that happy feeling of finding a personal letter in your analogue mailbox amongst the junk and bills.

Want to say hi to your mom? Encourage your 3rd grader’s teacher? Brighten your boss (or assistant’s) day? The president of your favorite organization? The sky (and 100 words) is the limit. Once you’ve finished, just send off your email to snailmailmyemail@gmail.com and their international network of 180 volunteers will transcribe and send your message, all free of charge.

And what letter would be complete without a little something extra? You can request a doodle, a flower petal, a spray of perfume or cologne, or even a lip stick kiss. I’m pretty sure trying any of those over email will result in a very broken hard drive.
