Not everyone can use a computer or cell phone; my grandmother cannot and she prefers to write letters and receive letters, so I came up with this.

Why do you need my address?

What if I get more than one reply?
We will send you the first real reply and any out of office message. If there are more replies, we will inform the sender of how we can convert them to letters and the cost.
Why THE price?
To cover our cost of manually scanning the letter, managing the platform that links the letters to email addresses and to be able to pay for the postage of sending you the reply.
What happens to my letters after they are scanned?
The original letters are destroyed.
How private are my letters?
We take privacy very seriously. When we scan your letters, we do have to briefly read some of the contents to make sure the scanning is clear; this is usually just the sender’s address and the first paragraph. We will never divulge the contents of your letters to anyone or use the contents of your letters in any way or form not sanctioned by you. The letter is considered your property, therefore we only provide a service for you and for the person you send the letter to.
How long does it take you to send my letter via email?
Once we receive your letter, it takes us one business day to scan and email it.
How long does it take you to post the reply I get?
Once we receive a reply to the email sent, it takes us one business day to print it and mail it to you.
If the email reply is in colour, do you print it in colour?
At the present moment, we only print letters in black and white.
Is there a tracking number for the replies you send by mail?
No, we send them through regular post.
