What’s better than receiving a letter in the mail? Receiving an adorably tiny letter in the mail, of course.
Miniature Mail, a Florida-based postal company that specializes in designing and mailing customized tiny letters, is here to make your teeniest snail mail dreams come true.
The “Littlest Postmasters,” as the group calls themselves, launched on May 5 in honor of National Small Business Week, and has big plans to spread cheer in a technology-obsessed world by putting a literal small spin on an old-fashioned form of communication.
“It all started when I wrote a tiny letter for my wife and put it into a tiny envelope,” Miniature Mail owner and postmaster Justin Powell explained in a press release. “She was recovering from surgery and had had a rough day, so I gave her the note. She loved her little letter so much that I knew I had to share this with other people.”
For $9.99 you can send your very own Little Letter to a loved one, complete with a personalized message, and custom font, lettering size, envelope, and stamp. Look how precious they are… but be warned, you might need your glasses.
Sure, a text message costs nothing to send and is received much faster, but think about the novelty, people! Tiny Letters are cute, quirky, and a perfect way to let someone know you’re thinking of them.
“Say it big, send it small—that’s our motto,” Powell said in the release. “…Sometimes, it really is about the small things. Our products bring surprising joy to people who see them, and that’s worth something.”
If you’re worried about the little cuties getting lost in the mail, have no fear. The Tiny Letters are mailed in normal-sized clear plastic envelope sleeves to ensure they arrive safely (and your mail deliverers won’t hate you).
And if you’re not sure what to say with your powerful tiny words Miniature Mail has you covered with this handy list of ideas. Suggestions include sending little declarations of love to sending mail to your child’s American Girl doll (LOL). So, there’s definitely a lot to consider.
When it comes to gestures, bigger may be better, but smaller is definitely cuter.
