In an attempt to add a bit of offline, location-based information to physical letters, designer Stephen Hallgren has created Map Envelope, a website that enables anyone to create and print out a custom Google Map complete with personal message and dotted lines on how exactly to fold it into an envelope fit for the mail. Depending on the area selected, the map can serve as hidden return address, a reminder of the places visited or a guide to an upcoming event.
