We use upcycled & vintage postcards, cards & letter writing stationery which we’ll handpick from our collection for every mail message ordered. You can choose to send a postcard, letter, card or email to someone you don’t know, somewhere across the world.

Choose the kind of mail you’d like to send, submit your message and we’ll do the rest! You can choose to make a donation to help cover postage costs when you order your mail.  We’ll handpick something from our upcycled stationery stash, handwrite your message and send it to someone you don’t know. We’ll never share your address or personal details with anyone, ever.

Your surprise mail will make someone’s day. If you opted to receive mail when you signed up, you’ll get mail from other Talking to Strangers Project members too. All mail will be moderated, just in case. So the mail you send & receive will always be safe!
