Imagine you just sit in your home send a Email and it's delivered as a Postal Letter to the Recipient, Looks blizzard for you, Now that's possible.Now this will question will be running in your mind, why I need this option?



  • Your relative might be in a distance village, have no Internet connection and you don't have time to buy a Inland cover,a stamp, write a letter and go to the post box and post it
  • Your Mom,Dad or Grand Parents may know to use Internet but feels good when they get paper mail they are really impressed
  • Wanna Impress your Gril friend / Boy friend in a different way , instead of sending regular emails, you can attach a picture and send it to them ( pls don't steal this idea from me lolz :p )
  • Imagine your friends get 100 emails daily and chances are there they might miss your emails, if you feel to bring your email to notice, this is a option
  • Send your Greetings, no more going to shop and selecting the greetings, browse in Internet or create a new one in Photoshop and send it to your dear ones
