Frequently Asked questions

History By Mail is a monthly subscription service for replicas of historical letters and documents. Each letter comes with a separate document explaining the context of the letter including its author, recipient, and relevance to the events of its time, as well as a transcription when necessary.

History By Mail makes an excellent gift for history buffs of all shapes and sizes.

Letters come once every month and are charged either monthly, every 6 months, or annually (depending on your subscription plan).

Simply click the "Send as a gift" button on the selected subscription page and fill in the recipient's details. An email will be sent to the recipient on the date set on the "When should we tell the recipient about their gift?" field. You can choose the number of renewals you would like to gift the recipient by choosing from the "Gift Amount" options. Multiple renewals will be billed up front in a single charge.

Our team of curators search historic archives worldwide for interesting letters that touch on relevant historic themes, or that are written by or to historic figures. Our team verifies the authenticity of the documents and then produces a replica of the original document to deliver to you.
