PC2Paper enables you to send letters in several ways via our system

  • Uploading a PDF of your finished document which you can create directly from applications such as MS Word.
  • Using the PC2Paper Printer enables you to write your letter in any application on your computer and print it directly from your machine to us as a letter.
  • Write your letter online and if you choose to attach PDF's as part of your letter

The following example will show you how to do this using our online editor and how you can re-use the same letter over and over again after setting up a saved letter as a template.

Step 1 - Write your letter

Log into your PC2Paper account and click on the Write a Letter link and select the insert template link (shown in the link below)

In the dialogue that appears upload images of your letter head and signature using the "Upload Image" section shown in the image below (you can read more about inserting images into your document here). Then click on the image of your letter head you uploaded and click on OK.

Step 4 - Insert your signature

Inserting your signature is exactly the same process. Scroll down your letter to where you wish to insert your signature and click the insert image icon and then select an image of your signature to upload.

Step 5 - Preview your document

Step 6 - Save your letter for later

You can now save your letter and create a copy of it each time you wish to send a new letter. To do this close the preview, click save and then select "close & exit". On the page that appears select the "Items Saved" tab (as shown below).  Click on the "copy as a new letter" copy icon next to your letter each time you wish to send a new letter with your letter head and signature.

We have received several queries by concerned customers regarding the Heartbleed vulnerability that has recently been announced in the press.

The vulnerability affects sites that are not patched, who make use of a piece of software called OpenSSL.

We can assure you we are not affected by this vulnerability because:

  • We do not use OpenSSL
  • We have already scanned ourselves for the vulnerability and we have been found not to have it.
  • We are regularly scanned for such vulnerabilities by Trustwave to ensure we conform to industry standards for handling credit cards on line.

We would also like to point out that some of the sites that try to detect these vulnerabilities have become overloaded because so many people are checking them. A few are giving time-out messages which people are mistaking for a vulnerability.

PC2Paper will be closed on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Any letters sent during these days will be queued in our system and posted on the next available working day. In addition to this we have an earlier than normal cut-off time of 12 noon for mail on Christmas Eve due to an earlier postal collection.

We will also be removing Special Delivery and Recorded Delivery temporarily over the Christmas period once the cut-off time for these services has passed.
