What is Rooftop Post?
Rooftop Post is a small, British, web-based business which began its life in 2002.
It is called “Rooftop Post” because of the traditional notion that letters from Santa Claus are received via people’s chimneys. However, although we started by focusing on Father Christmas, we now create printable resources from many other magical characters as well, including the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.
Our website – www.rooftoppost.co.uk – was created with parents, grandparents and all other child carers in mind, as a way of providing quick and easy access to fun resources for children. It is built on the idea of adding a bit of laughter and magic to family life and has no religious content.
Why is everything free?
Well, not all of it is. For a couple of months each winter, we also sell personalised Father Christmas story-letters via an online shop. However, due to a fall in the number of paying customers and a rise in users looking for free content, our focus these days is on providing printables without charge.
We also wanted to create a website which would reflect what some would term the original spirit of the internet – sharing. After all, the web at its best is a treasure trove of free stuff, so we wanted to throw in a bit of our own.
In a nutshell, our aim is to:
- create quick and convenient printables for parents;
- give something back – we are great believers that ideally, the internet should be full of useful free content;
- make use of resources our friends and family have built up for their own children.
