Snail Mail Friends: Creativity and Friendship

Human nature craves companionship, and as the world succumbs to the allure of technology, this innate human need is now expressed through digital means. There is no shortage of communication lines, from social media innovations to digital contrivances. Though these inventions are remarkable at best, creative individuals yearn for something more phenomenal and expressive.

With this in mind, Snail Mail Friends came to be. A platform that efficiently caters to the networking compulsions of the creative community.


Snail Mail Friends

Creativity Meets Friendship

Snail Mail Friends is an unprecedented digital platform that provides a space for creative individuals (from all over the world) to network. Snail Mail Friends is synonymous with a creative pen pal site that transcends writing and exchanging letters. Beyond sharing creative skills, the platform permits swap events.

With a membership plan, you can swap with different members/creatives and share an infinite creative bond. Best of all, Snail Mail Friends supports random swaps, extending the flow of creativity. However, random swaps are only activated if a member permits this function in their account.

And the icing on the cake? Snail Mail Friends is 100% banner-free! Yes, it is "allergic" to those bothersome advertisements that are the bane of most websites. Plus, members are allowed to internally link and showcase their artwork with zero interference from external factors.

Snail Mail Friends is also mobile-friendly! How cool is that...?

We took over a year to develop this amazing platform so you can experience all the benefits and the joy!

Night mode is beneficial for those viewing mobile computing device screens at night. The reduced brightness can reduce eye strain in low-light conditions.

Swap Trackr+  made for our Platinum members

Swap Trackr+ is a unique and exclusive feature on Snail Mail Friends for Platinum members. This unique feature lets Platinum members track all their external swaps. It's the best way to keep all your swap adventures organized.

Keep all your swap adventures organized!

When you arrange a swap outside Snail Mail Friends, like on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc., it can be hard to keep track of every Snail Mail. With our exclusive feature Swap Trackr+, you can keep everything in one place. How cool is that?

  • Add unlimited external swaps
  • Shows days left till the deadline and get notified by e-mail when running late
  • Keep track of the current status and actions (photographed, shared online)
  • Option to have your swaps rated, even if your swap partner is not registered with our unique L!NKK feature
  • Get notified by SMS when the swap is received and your swap got rated (only with Swap Trackr+ L!NKK)
  • Rating system integrated with your regular Snail Mail Friends ratings (only with Swap Trackr+ L!NKK)
  • Search- and filter options to sort out your swaps
  • Move completed swaps to an archive, accessible at any time

Get your external Snail Mail rated with Swap Trackr+  L!NKK

You can use the L!NKK feature that we notify your swap partner who isn't a member of Snail Mail Friends (yet) as soon as you mark your swap as sent. Your swap partner can use our rating and feedback option absolutely free, even without registering an account on Snail Mail Friends. As soon as the swap is received by your swap partner and rated, it's automatically marked as received, and you will get notified by e-mail and SMS! The rating you receive is integrated with your regular Snail Mail Friends rating system. So we will calculate the new average with every new rating.

If you have an email address you can send the Swap Trackr+ link directly, no worries we will delete the email after sending the link. When you do not have an email address you can copy the link and share it yourself with your swap partner (social platform, e-mail, messenger).

Our L!NKK feature is included for free within your Platinum plan!



How does it work?

Creatives appreciate an excellent tracking system, and Snail Mail Friends adheres to this peculiarity. Our platform offers a premium tracker to its platinum members, giving them the liberty to enter and keep track of their postage. That is, you can exclusively monitor your incoming and outgoing Snail Mail, even those that stem from other sources and not from the Snail Mail Friends platform.

However, this privilege is only accorded to Platinum members, so if you subscribe to a premium or standard membership, you can't develop a tracking list of incoming and outgoing Snail Mail. You will only be privy to your Snail Mail swaps.

Further to this, our platform employs a rating system to enhance serviceability. All swaps rating on a scale of 1-5 stars with concise and constructive feedback. It is important to note that the rating system assesses the Snail Mail, not the member. Each member is identified as a beginner, intermediate or advanced Snail Mailer. Hence you can gauge their profile and skills and rate their swap accordingly.
