Invention consolidates email, social & physical addresses into one Digital P.O. Box.

Technology platform lettrs today released the first 100,000 user allotment of its personal PO Boxes that allow users to create, manage, and deliver digital or paper post letters right from their desktop or iPhone.

The highly popular lettrs mobile and desktop writing platform, http://www.lettrs.co, lets users deliver personal mobile or postal letters to anywhere in the world, turning their iPhone into a mobile writing desk. Now users can organize their life’s letters, digital and physical addresses with an individual PO Box number assigned to them by the lettrs correspondence cloud. The demand for the first 5-digit postal numbers available is expected to be high since lettrs already has several thousand users registered across 109 different countries.

“The introduction of the personal PO Boxes is another ambitious innovation toward our goal of making letter- writing relevant and easily accessible across generations and locations,” said Drew Bartkiewicz, co-founder and CEO of lettrs. “In an age when digital life has sometimes sacrificed quantity over quality, we are hearing from our writers that people are hungry for a meaningful and deliberate communication choice in their lives, which is the heritage of a personal letter. The lettrs PO Boxes are all about making the process of personal letter delivery and connection much more convenient, purposeful and lasting. Words found in letters are some of our best words in life.” The first wave of digital PO Boxes hit the market today for 5-digit availability.

The lettrs mobile app converts mobile voice, data and pictures to digital and paper post letters. With an elegant fusion technology and design, the lettrs system, http://www.lettrs.co, personalizes deliberate words into themed letters that can be delivered directly via the new PO Boxes of registered users at lettrs. Or the letters are hand-addrress and tastefully mailed paper post by the tiny lettrs postal service in Collinsville, CT, which has already mailed letters across 100+ countries and between generations of writers.

“The PO Box is a universal symbol of convenience and tradition,” says John Havens, Founder of the H(app)athon Project, “and lettrs has brought this old-world symbol of personalized communication into the digital. The personal and business applications for the digital PO Boxes provide a simple way for people to improve the way they communicate, so they can reclaim the power and value of long-form relationships based on edifying communications - versus snackable disposable media. And who wouldn't love to have a real PenPal these days?”

The Digital PO Boxes extend the fast growing lettrs.com platform, making it even easier to bring the social grace of letter writing to mobile and social networks. With the lettrs PO Box, users can:

  • Manage email or social addresses under one personal PO Box number, including their physical mailing address
  • Choose PO Box delivery preferences, like delivering paper letters from the lettrs global postal center, or choose digital delivery of the letters “in the cloud”
  • Extend their PO Box number via the PO Box widget to other social media sites so people can more easily write lettrs across Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter, including attached pictures
  • Display their own PO Box number via the more public letter space of the lettrs “fridge” or add friends to a private PenPal address book to allow new social connections via letter writing

Via the lettrs cloud architecture, users can distribute a digital letter anywhere in the world with an Internet browser and free PO Box at lettrs. The personal letters are managed in the cloud for each user to read, preserve, or share. lettrs has already been utilized by students in high school & college, professionals, and small businesses. “We are using technology to now help us think and write, be purposefully permanent, in our more deliberate & meaningful communications in life. We are not the 'Instagram of letters'...we are lettrs." said Bartkiewicz.
