Call it email stationery. Or dressed up messaging even. MeebleMail’s reason for being is the return of the personal touch via frilly borders and a nice font. While perfumed emails aren’t feasible (who knows?), MeebleMail at least goes halfway by letting users pay dirt cheap for a customized email template for yearly use.
Founded last year by Edmond and Sharon Gaffney, MeebleMail sells its stationary designs thru a quasi-subscription model where users pay $4.99 for one year. MeebleMail has so far managed to provide a startling variety of cute designs and their website is a breeze when it comes to service.
Precious insight about the startup comes from their blog:
“In today’s competitive job market, it’s critical to make yourself standout among the competition. I had a recent conversation with someone in a hiring position at a much-coveted company in New York. She was telling me how she really liked a candidate, but had to eliminate him because she didn’t receive an email thank you immediately after the interview. She explained that in today’s world of instantaneous communication, the hand-written thank you note while definitely still a proper thing to do – an email thank you immediately following the interview is a MUST.”
Based on the above, it appears MeelbeMail are making a serious effort to expand their product’s utility. That’s very good.
To date, MeebleMail has pulled off a respectable amount of good press and a decent core service. As to their platform’s wider application as beautifiers of emails, why, that’s their decision.
