How it works

Write a message

How we protect your privacy

We do not peek

Your letter is for your eyes and your eyes only. We do not read your letter. Our entire process is automated so that only our machines "see" your letter before it is sealed in an envelope.

We encrypt

We encrypt your letter and personal data whenever the data is at rest and exclusively use secure protocols when it is in transit meaning that potential attackers cannot read your sensitive data, even if they get a hold of it.

We do not spy

We only record personal data which is required for fulfilling our service. We do not track you or sell your data. We share personal data only when it is absolutely necessary (e.g. to process your payment).

Frequently asked questions

Do you ship worldwide?

Yes, we ship worldwide. We send our letters through the German Post office, which allows us to send letters to every country on the globe. However, if you believe that your local post office is not reliable enough to deliver your letter and would like us to use a different carrier, please contact us via E-Mail and we will try to accommodate your preference.

What is your pricing?

We ask for a flat fee of 4.99€|£4.29|$6.07 for every letter you want to send. This price is not affected by the length of your letter or the country of delivery. By taking a flat fee for every letter we strive to compensate "more costly" letters (i.e. long letters to faraway places) with "less costly" letters (i.e. short letters to countries close to Germany). We hope that by using this pricing model, our service stays affordable to everybody.

What if my address changes?

You can change the address of your letter through the menu "Change your address" above. You will be prompted to fill in the E-Mail address of the letter. We will then send an E-Mail with instructions on how you can change the address yourself.

How long can my letter be?

Your letter can contain up to 12,500 characters, which equates to approximately 2,000 words or around 5 pages. If you believe that this length is not sufficient, please let us know by contacting us via E-Mail or Social Media.
