2. We are actually located in North Pole, Alaska.
Lots of other letter sites offer a North Pole, Alaska postmark, but nearly all of them mail the letters to Alaska to be postmarked. We are physically located in downtown North Pole, our employees live here, and the mailman comes directly from the North Pole Post Office to pick-up our letters.
3. We have a genuine North Pole, Alaska physical address.
This address is the return address on our Letters from Santa. We are the only letter site on the internet with an actual physical address in North Pole that you can actually visit or write to.
5. Your children can actually write to Santa at our address.
Every year we receive thousands of letters to Santa from children all over the world. While Santa can't respond to each letter due to the sheer volume received, he loves to read the letters. Many are displayed on our famous "letter walls" in our store which feature letters from children all over the world.
The year we sent our first Santa Letter, a US first-class postage stamp was 3 cents.
6. We offer a huge variety of Letter from Santa styles.
We have a letter from Santa for any situation. We offer over two dozen styles of letters. Most letter styles have multiple versions so children in the same household will each receive a different letter. For example, of our most popular letters, we offer 25 variations of our famous Classic Christmas Letter, 8 variations of the Toddler Christmas Letter, and 5 variations of the Baby's 1st Christmas Letter.
7. We are proud to offer the same timeless stationary that children have
enjoyed for generations.
Like Santa himself, our exclusive letter and envelope stationery has changed very little over the 60 years we've sent Santa Letters. This certainly enhances believability when children can see that their Santa Letter is written on the same paper as the Santa Letter their parents received decades ago.
