Tartan fabric letter catcher that attaches over your internal letter box without hard fixings, so can be used by renters too. No more picking the post up from the floor or having to step over the mail when you get home, hides the mail from letter pinching pooches, acts as a draught excluder and even improves your home security. Read more about these below. Lots of choice of fabric available too. All handmade in the UK using fabrics from other UK small business.

Super easy to fit.
They attach to your door and cover your internal letter box flap via a Velcro style system. There are two sticky back strips supplied that you attach to your door, one above the flap and one below. These stay on your door permanently. The sticky strips can be easily cut down to size if your door has a frame around the letterbox flap. The letter catcher bag then attaches to these strips by pressing the strips sewn onto the bag against the ones on the door. There are no tools needed and no holes to create when attaching to your door so perfect if you rent or lease your property. Universal fit, covering letter box flaps up to 8cm tall and 35cm wide. Please ensure you have fully read the instructions and thoroughly cleaned and dried the door where the letter catcher will fit fully before attaching the sticky strips. Also see the video on my page.

How to use them.
Access to the post can be made through 20cm open sides (on both sides for any door orientation) or by pulling down the top to access larger items thanks to the Velcro style fixing.

How big are they?
They are on average 41cm tall x 42cm wide, which are big enough to take newspapers and magazines as well as large amounts of envelopes.

What do they do?
They catch your post for you, so no more bending down to pick post up from the floor. Great if you have back issues or you use a wheelchair.
If your door with your letter box is in your front room, they can add a bit of colour and interest to your room.
They can hide the post from a pet that likes to attack or chew the mail.
They can help to stop a draught coming through your letter box flap.
They cover the letterbox so if you have a missing, unsightly or damaged flap, this solves it for you.
They can help to reduce the risk of someone looking through your letter box, or fishing for keys to gain access to your property or take your car keys.
No more build-up of post on the floor while you are away either, which if you have glass panels near your post box, is a clear indication that you are not home to a potential burglar.

Care and Cleaning.
And no need to worry if they get dirty either. Because the strips are sewn onto the bag, and the sticky strips stay on the door, just wash (ideally hand wash) the bag at 30°c with similar colour items. Drip dry (do not tumble dry) and iron on a medium setting (do not iron the white hook and loop strips). Do not dry clean or use bleach.

What are they made from?
These are made from a mixture of polyviscose, cotton and polyester fabrics and have Velcro style nylon strips to attach them to your door.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my packaging eco friendly?

Yes. I use cardboard boxes, unbleached paper wrap, and paper tape for my items. I will also recycle boxes from orders I have recieved. If I ever have to use bubble wrap, (and it's very rare I do) I have a stash of this from orders I have recieved ready for reusing.

How long does postage take?

I aim to dispatch (non custom items) within 24 hours (monday to saturday) wherever possible. I will send you a proof of postage after being taken to the post office so you can see it's on the way. For custom items, this can be discussed at time of placing your order.

Sizing details

I always try to put the sizes on my listing so that you can easily see if it's right for you. But if you ever want more detail, please ask and I will try my very best to help you.

Where do I get my fabrics from?

Where possible I purchase from other UK small business. I also get fabrics for recycling from a local hospice charity.
