If you’ve been keeping up with the news, then you know that the United States Postal Service is in serious trouble. The amount of mail that goes through its system has decreased dramatically over the years, which means that it’s not making as much money as it used to. What’s the reason for this? The Internet. Instead of sending letters or postcards, a lot of people send e-mails, and instead of paying bills through the mail, many individuals are using online billing because of the convenience. With that said, there are still occasions where you may actually need or want to send someone a letter, and Snailmailr has made sending someone a letter almost as easy as sending an e-mail.

Using this service, you pay just US$1 to fill out an envelope, type a letter (up to four pages — additional pages cost more), and have it sent to the recipient through the mail all through your computer. Snailmailr takes care of the printing and mailing, and for an extra fee of US$0.15, you can even have its logo removed from the envelope. You can view using this service as being your way of helping to keep the United States Postal Service afloat.
