I’ve been on vacation for a while, so I apologize if you’ve seen this already. It’s called “Map Envelope” and it lets you drop your location and message to a friend in, and then prints out an envelope that has the exact location you’re sending it from. Genius.

You can put in your exact address, or just your general location. The lined envelope makes for an awesome surprise when sending back taunting love letters to your friends and family.

Once the preview looks OK to you, simply print it out, put it together and stuff it with something good legal.

And yes, there is still such a thing as “actual mail.”
