If you’re like most people, you probably hate writing letters. But don’t worry; there’s an easy way to get started. In this article, we’ll show you how to mail a note using the most common postal services. And, no, we won’t blame technology for our lousy handwriting skills.

Though it’s become increasingly rare to see a letter in the mail, it’s still possible to do so. Here are a few tips on how to mail a letter.

The Mysteries Of Snail Mail

We all know the feeling. You’re sitting at your desk, staring at your computer screen, and suddenly realise you must write a letter. You open up a new document, start typing away, and then you remember… you have to mail this thing. And you have yet to learn how.

It’s been years since you’ve written a letter the old-fashioned way, and the process has become a mystery. Thankfully, we’re here to help. Here’s a step-by-step guide to mailing a note to get your thoughts out of your head and into the world.

  1. Get a piece of paper and an envelope.

This seems like a no-brainer, but ensuring suitable materials is essential. Standard letter paper is usually 8.5″ x 11″; you can find envelopes to match at any office supply store.

  1. Address the envelope.

Write the recipient’s name and address on the front of the envelope. If you’re sending the letter to someone you know well, you can use just their first name, but if you’re sending it to a business or someone you don’t know well, it’s always best to use their full name and title.

  1. Place the letter inside the envelope.

Fold the letter, so it fits snugly inside the envelope, with the fold on the left side. Then, please insert it into the envelope so the address side faces up.

  1. Seal the envelope.

To seal the envelope, lick the flap and press it down. If you’re worried about the envelope getting wet, you can also use a piece of tape to seal it.

  1. Add a stamp.

Stamps can be purchased at any post office or grocery store. If you need help determining how much to buy, use the USPS website to calculate the postage cost.

  1. Drop it in the mail.

Once your envelope is sealed and stamped, drop it in any mailbox. Your letter will be on its way!

What’s Happening Here?

“What’s Happening Here”

I recently tried to mail a letter and blame technology for what happened. I blame technology for many things, but this is a story for another day.

Anyway, I went to the post office to buy stamps, and the clerk told me I couldn’t believe just one symbol. I had to buy a book of stamps. I asked her why, and she said that’s how it is now. You can’t accept just one stamp.

I said, “I’ve been buying stamps for years, and I’ve never had to buy a book of stamps. What’s happening here?”

She said, “I don’t know. I think it has something to do with the Internet.”

I said, “The Internet? What does the Internet have to do with buying stamps?”

She said, “I don’t know. But that’s what I’ve been told.”

So, I bought a book of stamps, and I went home. And I blamed technology for what happened.


In the essay “How to Mail a Letter” the author blames technology for how letters are sent nowadays. He argues that technology has made it so that people no longer have to take the time to write a letter and put a stamp on it. Instead, they can send an email or a text message. While this may be more convenient for some people, the author believes it has harmed society. He points to the fact that people are now less likely to communicate with one another face-to-face and that this is due in part to the fact that they can send a message instead.
