There’s been quite a bit of debate (and strikes) surrounding the privatisation of postal services. Whilst strikes has been going on, private postal companies have been (or will be) cleaning up.

Much as I love writing by hand (I still do, most days), I don’t write letters much any more because of e-mail. Postful is the connecting service. You write an e-mail, they make it into a PDF, print it and snail mail it for you.

It’s a smart idea that is a need well-spotted, but I could see it being used for some nice creative projects too (you can attach images, for example). It seems like another example of service need rethinking leapfrogging traditional businesses.

In any case, now there’s even less reason to leave the house.
