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 stands out as an exceptional digital platform, providing a vibrant community for creative minds from across the globe to connect. More than just a pen pal site, Snail Mail Friends transcends the act of writing and exchanging letters; it fosters a community where creative skills are shared and exciting swap events take place.

With one of our membership plans, you can engage with diverse members and creatives, forming endless creative bonds. One of our unique features includes random swaps, enhancing the creativity flow among members. It's important to note that random swaps are activated if a member opts for this function in their account settings.

What sets us apart? Snail Mail Friends is free from intrusive banners and annoying advertisements, allowing members to focus solely on their creative pursuits. Additionally, members can internally link and showcase their artwork without external interference.

Moreover, Snail Mail Friends is optimized for mobile devices, ensuring a seamless experience for users on the go.

We have dedicated over one and a half years to developing this exceptional platform so you can enjoy all the benefits and the pure joy of creative connections.

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.

What is Snail Mail?


Snail Mail in short

In this day and age, snail mail might seem like a thing of the past. With the advent of e-mail and other electronic communication methods, sending a letter the old-fashioned way might seem slow and outdated. However, snail mail still has its fans. For some people, there is nothing quite like the satisfaction of opening their mailbox and finding a handwritten letter, postcard or creative package from a friend. In addition, snail mail can be a great way to stay in touch with distant friends and family members, and for those looking for a more personal form of communication, snail mail can be a great alternative to e-mail. So whether you're sending a birthday card or just staying in touch, don't discount the power of snail mail!
