Please Note

The Email to Letter Gateway is an automated system. It will automatically place your letter into our system and can be viewable from your PC2Paper account when you log into the website. It will choose the cheapest option to send your letter, you cannot place instructions on how you wish to send your letter and anything placed in the body of the email message will be included as a cover page for your letter

If you require different paper types or postage options then the gateway is probably not the best option for you and you are better off using our website. 

Getting started

You will need a PC2Paper account, once you have one log into your account and click on your name in the top right hand corner. From this menu select the "Email To Letter Gateway" option. From here you type in the email address that will be used with this service. This basically tells us what email address we should trust to use your account. After you have done this hit the Update button and you are ready to start emailing your letters to us.

Writing the email

In the example below, we are writing a letter to Tom Smith. Everything in the body of the email will be sent as a cover letter. The subject line of the letter will be used as the postal address. It is very important that you place the country name as the last entry on the subject line and that the lines of the address are separated by a comma as shown below.

You may also include PDF attachments in your letter.

Can I just send a PDF?

Yes you can. If you do not wish to send a cover letter ensure the body of your email is completely blank. Any PDF's attached will be included in your letter.
