Family Review Network I was able to give them a try! Here's a little bit more about the company:
Printable Santa Letters.com was started by two moms with young kids. Our goal is to make it easy for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and teachers to share the magic of Santa Claus with children. We offer a fast, easy and affordable way for anyone to become one of Santa's elves.
Simply choose the text of your letter and a background image. Then fill in the blanks. You'll be shown a preview of your Santa letter, which you can approve, or you can go back and try another letter or design. It just takes a few minutes.
Once you're satisfied, you can choose one of our three Santa letter packages, from the basic package with just a letter and an envelope for only $3.99, or one of our larger packages that include extra goodies such as a personalized Nice List Certificate or an autographed photo of Santa. You'll receive a link to instantly download your products and then you can print them right from your computer. It's easy, fun, and will save you money over the full-service Santa letter sites.
My Take: Here's what I love about this site. It's instant gratification for parents. I know I've seen other Santa letter sites where they mail you the letter. That way you have to worry about it actually getting to your house and timing when it will get there and more! Why stress out!?! At printable Santa Letters.com you fill in a short questionaire and then print out your letters. I also love how they don't just have the one Santa Letter. You can choose from various templates and forms. The only thing I didn't like was it wasn't very flexible with some of the questions for instance if you wanted to make a letter for multiple kids or if you only wanted to add one activity or one toy. Other than that it was also. There are also 3 packages you can choose from! The first package is only the letter and envelope. The second package is the letter, the envelope, photo of santa, and a letter from Rudolph. The final package is everything from the second package including a nice list certificate and another envelope.
I think this is a great idea that any kid would love and all the added bonuses in the packages make it worthwhile. I would only suggest that you follow the printing suggestions from the site in order to make your letters look as professional as if they were shipped to you. I love the nice list certificate and I'm hoping that the Santa photo will make it easier for my kids when we go to visit Santa. They were scared of him last year...LOL
Buy it: The Santa Letters can be customized and purchased online for various prices depending on the package. The smallest package is$3.99, the next is $6.99 and the largest is $8.99. Once you have purchased your letters you can immediately download the templates and print them off or you can later access them from the website using the letter retrieval on the side. An email with your download links will also be sent to you so you can print them at any time.
