It is worth underlining that the RNIB Letter from Santa is for Blind and Partially Sighted children as the OP stated. Alternative media (e.g. braille) is provided - quite different to the offer from Royal Mail. I am sure that donations to Sooty would be very welcome to support this amazing offer.

To be fair.... it’s free


To be fair.... it's not. You have to buy a stamp for each letter.

Like I said my comment was just a heads up, but I think you're missing the point. I didn't say it wasn't good value for money, just a not a very good concept that spoilt the magic of Christmas for my daughters somewhat. To not even put their name at the top of the letter when they can manage to do it on the envelope is pretty poor.

Both my girls got exactly the same letter (card) with the same printed text and no personalisation, not even their name on it (except on the envelope!).

Are these for collectors or do they have any merit as an investment? Never bought collector editions of stamps but I've bought collector's coins from The Royal Mint and I've concluded they have no investment potential whatsoever.

Are there any working discount codes?

Well timed considering the £1 eBay listing just gone thanks

Yes the internet has indeed increased parcel delivery opportunities yet I rarely see parcel force or royal mail in my area delivering .Its the likes of yodal.dpd.hermes doing bulk of the work and their market share is increasing day by day .just read above comments ,If you really think your business is increasing then it's YOU who needs educating .Royal mail has monopoly on letters otherwise they would be going out of business.Dont get me started on the RM small van driver ,I doubt any have picked up the highway code since a driving lesson.
Unfortunately I need a CPC qualification to get behind the wheel of my vehicle ,shame it's not the same for small vans as well.

As a business user of Royal Mail I can honestly say I have never used a worse service and that includes Hermes! They accept no responsibility for loss or damage. They have a signed for service which more often than not is delivered without any network scans or signature. I have around a 2% loss/miss delivery rate. Using parcel2go/parcel monkey you can send up to 25kg on a tracked next day delivery for around £5 so why would anyone pay more for an inferior service

Anybody recently used this? Any good or bad experiences to share? Thanks

I signed up this week and sent my first parcel. Seems an elaborate website Dashboard which is great for inputting especially items a business would send out again and again but as far as the tracking facility and gaining proof it leaves alot to be desired. I took the precaution of queuing up at the Post Office to get a Proof of Posting. I will be nice if the Dashboard eventually updates with the info, but I'm not holding my breath! Doubt if I will use Click and Drop again, I'll stick to My Hermes

Yeah, quite uselessly this service isn't updated automatically. It would have been more useful to be able to look at a batch posting from the Dashboard to look for any items not delivered instead of having to manually look up and enter each barcode number into the track and trace website. Pretty useless really.

The only way I've found is to go to Royal Mail Tracking and stick in the code found above the QR Barcode on the printed label. It won't show anything until it is scanned at the destination though. It would be much handier if the dashboard showed it. Remember to get the certificate of posting stamped when you drop the parcel off (needed to make a claim against the Royal Mail).

Hi folks, do people send plain small envelopes or the slightly bigger ones,A6 size? just wondered if to buy a Christmas patterned envelope or do they stick anything on it to return?

used to be better and the 1 nice thing the royal mail did before they started charging. They profit in this via the stamp costs. My kid just posts his letter to santa in postbox as usual (without a stamp, and usually without our address). And I do my own letter in word, takes a bit of time to make it look nice and North Pole-ish but it always looks good.

Not if you have a site with decent traffic.


If you run a site that sells jumbo jets, 50 orders is a good day.

In all seriousness, there are plenty of CMS that don't need 50 searches a day, such as small repair shops. If the limit is reached, they would go back to manual entry. If they go over 50 regularly, the dev can offer a paid-for service.

People like free, remember. That's why you're in the freebie section.

Also if you could write in block letter its less likely we will enter the destination address incorrectly.


Writing it in legible, large letters would also help the postman be able to read them too.
The amount of Christmas cards that don't get delivered because they can't be read is huge.
People might think it's cute to let your 3 year old write the address on an envelope - chances are it won't get delivered.

He doesn't have to remember. If someone opts out of door to door mail, it's flagged up on his/her fitting whilst sorting the Mail. They then miss that house out when putting the d2d leaflets in.
Posties load their own pouches. It's not done for them. [/quote]
Well my Posties for the last 5 years either can't read or are too incompetent to follow these instructions. The torrent of unaddressed mail flows through my letterbox relentlessly, regardless of how many times I've "opted out". Even having a friendly word with your current postie only has a short term effect because they change so regularly these days. I don't blame the postmen, it's Royal Mail's fault for being unwilling to implement an effective system which would dent their income. What a waste of resources - the cost to councils and taxpayers to uplift and recycle or dispose of, the environmental damage of tonnes of unnecessary and unwanted paper waste ending up in landfill .... and the list goes on.
