PixelLetter has begun offering a service that incarnates digital files into a physical, mailable form. Yes, I guess a desktop printer would do the same thing, but PixelLetter does the hard part (going outside to the mailbox) for you. All you have to do is email PixelLetter a document (in one of seven formats), and for a small fee based on the number of pages, they’ll print it out, do that tricky double fold, put it in a stamped envelope, and send it off.
This is excellent news for people like me, who due to an unfortunate hammock accident have been cursed with illegible handwriting and consequently don’t write as many letters to our grandmothers as we probably should.
So far PixelLetter only seems to serve Germany, though. Sorry, Grandma 🙁
Edit, from the comments: PixelLetter serves now worldwide. We send letters by airmail with the “Deutsche Post AG” from Germany or with the “Royal Mail” from the UK to recipients worldwide.
There are no more excuses that you can not send a letter to Grandma 😉
