I Want to Change My Address

You can update your address directly from the member portal ( Simply log in by entering the recipient name and billing email you entered at checkout, and click “Edit” next to the address on file. Since envelopes are printed a few days in advance of a mailing, address changes take about a week to take effect.

I Want to Change My Start Month

No problem! You can do so by answering a few short questions in the form at the end of the page.

I Want to Pause or Resume My Subscription

Visit this form and create a new support request with the headline “Pause”. In the body of the request, share your member name and email, and the account action you’d like to take.

Can you schedule my first letter to arrive on an exact date?

No. Unfortunately mailing is an inexact science. First-Class mail can take up to five business days to arrive, or as little as two (depending on where you live, and other random postal factors). International First-Class mail can take from 7-21 days, depending where in the world you live, and the quality of your local postal service.

Because of this unpredictability, and because we only regularly transport our letters to USPS once per week, we are unable to schedule a letter’s arrival.

I Have a Pre-Purchase Question

I Want to Know the Status of My Order

You can get general status updates on your order from If your order seems to be delayed and you need more specific information, please contact us here. USPS does not offer real-time tracking of stamped First-Class Mail, so once your letter is in the mail we have no way to track its exact location.

I Want to Request a Topic

Absolutely! Fill out our suggestion form, the first place our curators look when deciding which letters to share in a month. For the moment we are unable to honor any special requests for specific letters to individual subscribers.
