Throughout our day there's text messages flying, emails piling up and sometimes all you want is to take a step back from it all. Enter, snail mail. You remember it right? The whole letter and an envelope thing, it's so 1992 it's ridiculous, but you can make it a little bit cooler with the help of Map Envelope.

Map Envelope allows you to plug in any city or landmark within a city (parks, monuments, popular buildings and so forth), and give you an aerial map of things. That's not really anything new, but the website also allows you to insert a hand written message so when you're loved one opens their mail, it's there waiting for them.

Can you do this with Photoshop and a half hour of spare time? Sure. But would you? Probably not. It's a simple process of type type, print and you're all done. Everyone should send more snail mail, even if your inbox has been prioritized recently, that doesn't mean real mail doesn't still exist!
