Today, April 1st, Google introduces their newest feature, The Print Archive:
Everyone loves Gmail. But not everyone loves email, or the digital era. What ever happened to stamps, filing cabinets, and the mailman? Well, you asked for it, and itâ€™s here. Weâ€™re bringing it back.
A New Button
Now in Gmail, you can request a physical copy of any message with the click of a button, and we’ll send it to you in the mail.
Google will print all messages instantly and prepare them for delivery. Allow 2-4 business days for a parcel to arrive via post.
A stack of Gmail Paper arrives in a box at your doorstep, and itâ€™s yours to keep forever. You can read it, sort it, search it, touch it. Or even move it to the trashâ€”the real trash. (Recycling is encouraged.)
Keep it Secret, Keep it Safe
Google takes privacy very seriously. But once your email is physically in your hands, it’s as secure as you want to make it.
[…] Gmail Paper is made out of 96% post-consumer organic soybean sputum, and thus, actually helps the environment.
