PaperKarma – Snap a Photo. Stop Junk Mail.

What is PaperKarma?

PaperKarma is a mobile app that stops junk mail – real paper mail sent to your home or work (not email).

Our mission is to help you take control of your mailbox so you receive only the mail you want.

As it turns out, most businesses don’t want to waste marketing budgets on printing and delivery costs for ads that just get trashed.

For over a decade, we’ve helped 1 million+ customers unsubscribe from catalogs, magazines, credit card offers and more.

How does PaperKarma work?

The PaperKarma app helps you stop junk mail.

Simply snap a picture of your unwanted mail and press “Send” to remove yourself from a marketing list.

Within 24 hours you’ll receive a notification that you’ve been unsubscribed. You can always use the app to check on the status of your opt-out requests.

Does PaperKarma help the environment?

Each US household receives over 500 pieces of junk mail per year.

This adds up to more than 67 BILLION pieces of junk mail per year! Moreover, 44% of these solicitations go into landfills unopened!

The damage to the environment, carbon footprint and wasted energy are considerable.

In addition, let’s not forget about the frustration and wasted time – you’ll spend about 8 months of your life sorting through junk mail.

We started PaperKarma to address this environmental problem. In addition, we want to help reach a happy compromise between customers and marketers: receive only what you want (ideally in digital format).
