Direct Mail Services

PostalMethods' Direct Mail Services allow you to design letters and postcards on your computer but instead of printing them - you send them to PostalMethods where they are automatically processed and converted into postal mail.

The easiest way to send postal letters using the PostalMethods direct mail services is by sending your document attached to an email message. PostalMethods implements Direct Mail Services transparently. Here's what you need to do to turn your emails into letters:

  1. Sign up for a PostalMethods account
  2. Login to the control panel with your newly-generated username and password
  3. Tell PostalMethods from which email address(es) you will be sending your web-to-snailmail under User Settings -> Security -> Allowed Email Senders
  4. Download a Word template and use it to write your letter
  5. Save your letter and send it as an email attachment to
  6. That's it! PostalMethods will convert your document to direct mail. You can now follow your letter's handling status through the control panel's Activity tab
