Nifty. So it ships in the clear plastic mailer shown in the photo?

@jpow Yep, they're too small to send without an enclosure but too cool to send inside a normal, boring envelope!

Greetings hunters, My name is Justin and I created Miniature Mail in my spare time. I'm a software developer at my day job, so I've been able to use that to my advantage while building the service; I created a live preview/designer widget for our website, and a back-end tool for generating print-ready files based on order data. It's been a lot of fun, and I'm greatly looking forward to improving the quality of our products as well as expanding our product line. Why miniature, you may ask? Something about miniatures captures my imagination and makes me feel warm all over. In a world where so much is out of our control and bigger than we are, it feels good to hold something so small and non-threatening; I want to share that joy with other people. Thanks for reading! If I could ask one favor, please give me your honest feedback about the idea and the website. I'll forgive you if you don't love it, I just want to know how I can make it better. :)

Congrats on the launch, great idea! I just placed my first order, would like to suggest an edit option at check out and a more clear differentiation between whats a to: and from: address label.
Chris Anderson
I agree with @madebycamilo. Wasn't immediately clear that I had to select to ship to a different address in order to mail to the intended recipient. Perhaps make that the default selection? Or remove the ability to ship to billing address altogether? Doubt many will be send the letter to themselves. Really cool idea, though! Looking forward to my wife's reaction when she receives her tiny letter! Thanks!

Maker
@cbejarano_ai You're right, we desperately need integration with the editor during checkout flow. And you're also right about the need for a more streamlined and clear address entry process. Thanks for the order and feedback!
Justin Powell

@madebycamilo @raleighing Thanks for the order! You're right about the address confusion, I will work on getting this corrected.

@miniaturemail, Yup. just placed the order and I was confused about the address label too. It took the shipping address as billing address by default and I received fraud alert from chase to approve/deny the transaction as the billing address doesnt match. Great idea btw, I loved it! I tried adding a heart emoji (❤️) but I dont think it is supported yet?. It would be a great to send emojis in miniature mail.
Justin Powell
Maker
@shra1 Awesome, thank you for the feedback. I will work on the addressing issue as soon as possible. And you're totally right, emojis should be supported!

You could pay $10 for a letter you could litterally fit on a fork, or you could pay less than a euro for an actual, full-sized, serious letter. The choice is yours.
Justin Powell
Maker
@timmyrsde It's true. As for me, I chose to give my wife a fork-fitting letter because that's the one that elicits a squeal of joy. :)
Tim Speckhals
@miniaturemail Just give her chocolate and/or flowers, which is still cheaper, tho I'm not sure about USD prices.
Vaclav Bedrich
@timmyrsde When it comes to gifts or love, the price doesn't matter at all. Originality does.

Love it! I hope the line breaks will be on the finished result, cause during the checkout they didn't get displayed anymore in the message 😬
Justin Powell
Maker
@dylan36032 Absolutely! I've done extensive testing and development to ensure the preview is true-to-life for the finished product. :) It would be great to be able to preview/verify/edit the letter from the checkout process though...I should enhance that.
Dylan Marriott
@miniaturemail awesome, looking forward to seeing the result :)

This really intrigues me. I'm a printer and a print marketer and I'm trying to wrap my head around the mini envelopes. I can't imagine these being printed and converted for customization, there aren't really any printers that would be able to handle that without it being converted. Are you mass producing the mini envelopes and then printing the variable data on a clear label to be applied to the mini envelopes? The image doesn't look like it has a label on it. I'm trying to wrap my head around production right now, but my best guess is that these are done on such a small scale at the moment which would allow for you to build these yourself. Do you mind sharing how you are doing this? Love the concept!
Thad Lockard
@miniaturemail That makes sense. Let’s connect and I can help you scale this as your business grows.
