Between weddings, parties, well wishes, and thank yous, we sure do spend a lot of time and money sending out cards to our family & friends. While some are blessed with the innate ability to create works of art on the tops of envelopes, others are like me... unable to simply write in a straight line.

My name is Kimberly and I am a stationery designer in sunny California. I've had countless brides, friends, and fellow DIY'ers come to me in search of a solution to this stylistic dilemma. Well folks, worry no more, I'd like to introduce to you, The Lettermate. A plastic guide that enables you to address envelopes with ease. The guide ensures straight, centered, and consistently beautiful results every time. 

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions


Do you ship outside of the United States?
Our direct website is not equipped to handle international orders, however if you visit our Etsy shop (www.etsy.com/shop/thelettermate) we offer shipping to Australia & Canada.

 

Do I have to center my address?
Absolutely not. In fact, when I need to address a large amount of envelopes, I almost always use left-aligned text. Don’t get me wrong, I love the look of centered type, but it is a bit more time consuming to ensure everything stays perfect.

 

What happens if my address doesn't fit within the diecut window?
No problem. If you start writing a line of text and run out of room, simply slide your Lettermate to the right and finish writing your line of text. Do not try and squish letters into a tiny space, trust us, it will not look good.

I got ink on my Lettermate, how do I clean it off?
Like a truck that has been off-roading, you’re bound to get a little mud on the tires. Smudges & stains are the mark of a well loved Lettermate, but if you insist on keeping it clean as a whistle, use a damp paper towel to wipe off any extra ink. Do not use any soaps or solvents on your Lettermate, as you may end up stripping off the guide markings or translucent finish.

 

What pens do you recommend using?
My favorite & smoothest black pen, is the Sharpie Pen with a medium (or fine) tip. You can find these at most office supply stores!
For white ink, we recommend the Uni-Ball Signo Broad, and of course the good old Gelly Roll pens. Give your ink a few seconds to dry to prevent smudging.

 

What envelopes do you recommend using?
We love envelopes from the Paper-Source line. They are a lovely quality, and come in a spectrum of colors & sizes.

 

Do you wholesale?
Yes, indeed. Send us a direct message for product details & ordering information.

 

My Lettermate never arrived and I don’t have a tracking number, what should I do?
