dreamstime_xxl_41553017Worcester Envelopes can be used for a lot of things and withstand the wear and tear of the mailing system, because sometimes there is more that has to happen to get your mail to where it needs to go. With smart phones, social media, and the internet, it has become easier than ever to find and keep track of people’s contact information and mailing addresses. But what if you’ve tried everything and still can’t find a mailing address? One Icelandic tourist shows that you can send that letter no matter what.

No Address, No Problem

On August 30, a picture of an envelope was posted on Reddit. The sender had recently visited a Holar farm, a local tourist attraction, a “mini petting zoo” with the farm’s horses, goats, sheep, pigs, and other animals available to interact with tourists. Unfortunately, the address on the farm’s Facebook page was wrong. After trying everything to find the address the sender drew a map!

Despite Iceland’s growing popularity as a tourist destination, it has retained the small town feel that it is known and loved for and the letter made it to the recipient. Obviously, this won’t work every time, so what do you do if you can’t find the address for your letter? Below are some ways that you can find that address that you need.

Ways to Get Your Letter There


There are more and more people joining social media, for instance,  Facebook currently has 1.71 billion active monthly users with numbers still climbing. Businesses now have their own pages and many users now have their phone number featured on their page, and, depending on a person’s privacy setting, anyone can be reached via the Messenger feature. Other social networks provide messaging options, but Facebook by far is the one that offers more opportunities for publicly displaying information.

Google and other Search Engines

So much is on the internet, that if you Google the name of a person or business, you are bound to find something. Also, there are other pages such as AnyWho, SearchBug, Whitepages and more. And if you don’t know the zip code, USPS.com also has a way of looking the zip code for both residential and corporate addresses. Google’s site, Google Earth is also a great option!

Phone Book

There is always the good old fashioned phone book. The first phone book appeared February 21, 1878 in Connecticut, and was a single piece of cardboard with 50 names on it. For many, the phone book is too stationary for their needs, which is why it is being used less and less, and considered by many to be an environmental waste, but it still has value today.
But if none of these methods work, as we can see there is always the picture method! Remember to use Worcester Envelopes for all your mailing needs! Shop our envelopes today!
