Handiemail is a new service from a creative studio in Chicago called Knoed which will handwrite your emails and send them via postal service, envelope and all.
Here’s a video showing the service in action – first a regular ol’ digital email, and afterwards the handwritten version:
The service notes that there’s a maximum number of characters allowed per handwritten email:
After someone e-mailed the entire New Testament, we decided to limit “Letter Your E-mail” to 3,000 characters (~470 words / ~1 page). And there’s a one page limit to “E-mail Your Letter.”
Check out their site here, and they can be found on Twitter here.
It seems that, like vinyl and printed books, there’s still room for the analogue world in today’s age. The only thing to keep in mind that this handiemail service does not come cheap: it’s $25 per handwritten letter from email. Then again, the value of something like that should not be expressed in money, right? Let us know what you think of the service in the comments.

There is a Scenario C – which is also analogue.
If she means so much to you, write the letter yourself!!
I think this is a really neat idea! Especially for those who may not have the best handwriting, but want that personal touch that letters can deliver. Having the ability to spell check your letter beforehand doesn’t seem like a bad idea either for some..Interested to see where this will go! Thanks for sharing!
