LetterPop is one of those sites that fills a particular niche in such a way that you don’t normally need it, but when you do nothing else will quite suffice.
The concept of the site is to enable normal people – using nothing more than a Web browser – to create a very nicely formatted newsletter or brochure. Once created, LetterPop enables you to e-mail, print, or publish your newsletter to the Web.
I attached a screen capture here of a little sample page I threw together in about 2 minutes (I’m not exaggerating). Most of the time was actually spent deciding which format to use. Once you pick a layout you literally just drag and drop it onto the work area and then click in the various text fields and just fill in the blanks. You can also drag and drop images into the document, including your own which you can upload to the LetterPop server.
All in all, this is one of those services that almost anyone could use. If you can work a mouse and a keyboard you should be able to create a nice looking document. So, next time you want to send out a family newsletter, arrange a surprise birthday party, or plaster keg party announcements all over the dorm room – check out LetterPop.
