- Instructions for getting a North Pole postmark
It's so easy to give your child the magical gift of a personalized Santa letter. Just copy the text for one of the Santa letters on this page, paste it into a word processing document and fill in the blanks. (Try using a script font to make it look extra special.) Then, choose one of the custom letterhead designs at the bottom of this page and paste it at the top of your document. When you've sized the artwork and like the way the document looks, print it on nice paper. Parchment or Parchtone paper works particularly well, because they both have an old-time look and feel.
If you'd like an authentic North Pole postmark for the letter, follow the directions in the gray box in the right column. The postmarks are real and come from the U.S. Postal Service in Fairbanks, Alaska. Every year good little elves who work at the post office accept mail for Santa Claus and send replies to please children all over the world. Just be sure to act in plenty of time to ensure the letter can be mailed back to you by Christmas.

How you can help Santa
Every year needy children without much hope of a merry Christmas send letters to Santa through the US mail. The post office gives some of these letters to organizations and individuals to be answered personally. To volunteer or donate to the cause, visit Operation Letters to Santa.

Personalized Santa letter #1
Everyone at the North Pole has been talking about you! My elves heard that you're doing well in school and have been minding your parents, so they wanted to make sure you're on my Christmas list. I checked and sure enough, your name is on it. That means I'll be stopping by your house on Christmas Eve!
All of us in my North Pole workshop have been hard at work getting ready for Christmas. The elves are building new toys and making sure my shiny sleigh and reindeer are ready for the big trip to ________child's city________. When I look out my workshop window, I see several of my elves training the reindeer so they'll be ready to fly on Christmas Eve. Rudolph's nose is shining bright as ever, so I know I won't have any trouble finding my way to your home!
I understand you'd like a new _______gift name________ from me this year. I've talked about it with one of my elves and he's going to search the workshop to see if he can find it for you! I look forward to stopping by on Christmas Eve to deliver it. In the meantime, please be a good _____boy or girl_____, mind your parents and don't forget to leave me cookies on Christmas Eve!
Personalized Santa letter #2
I've made my list and checked it twice, and I see that you've been a very good _____boy or girl_____ this year!
I'm sure some days it's been hard to be good, but I know you've tried and I'm proud of you. That's why I've asked my elves to make you a special present that I can bring to you on Christmas Eve when I come to ________child's city________. In the meantime, please continue to mind your parents and don't forget to leave me cookies on Christmas Eve!
Merry Christmas to you and your family from Mrs. Claus, the elves and me.
