Put simply, although the content is mostly the same, the single version is addressed to one child; the joint option is addressed to two or more children.

Why hasn’t my letter arrived yet?

If, after 10 days from receipt of payment, your letter still hasn’t arrived, please get in touch. You should get a confirmation email, but any delays might be due to:
a) The date of payment confirmation – different banks process payments differently, so the date of funds transferred might differ from the day you settled the bill.
b) Your payment was declined. Please check your payment status in your account.
c) Missing data – if there are missing fields in the information you entered, we might not be able to send your letter. We’ll do our best to contact you by email or phone if that’s the case.
d) The Polish post office let us down – Get in touch and we’ll be sure to send the letter again at no additional cost

Yes. The safety of your personal data is one of our top priorities. We don’t sell or use your data for any purpose other than those specified in our complete terms and conditions. Your data is highly protected and used only to prepare your order – in fact, not even our staff has access to such data. As a rule they do not check the content of your letter(s), and would only do so at your request eg: to remove grammatical mistakes.

Where are the letters posted from?

All letters, with the consent of Santa Claus, are posted from Warsaw so that they can reach their addressees around the world and on other continents even faster.

Why does the letter have no tracking number?

All letters are our priority. However, due to technical issues, we do not offer letters to be sent priority, which means that your letter won’t have a tracking number. We cooperate with the Polish Post Office, which guarantees us on-time delivery.

What is the total cost of the letter?

All prices are shown next to their respective letters. Shipping costs vary depending on destination. Please find full details on our Price List.
