As much as we hate junk mail, we don’t envy Earth Class Mail the job it has assigned itself: To receive all your mail, scan its front and then send you pictures of it to review.

Once you’ve reviewed the mail, you can then direct the company to either shred it, open and scan the contents for you, or forward it to you, depending on your desires.

Based in Seattle, Earth Class operates post office boxes around the country. It offers its services to both individuals and businesses, for a monthly fee.

The $13.3 million first round funding was provided by Ignition Partners and the Keiretsu Forum, an angel investing consortium. The company previously raised $3.25 million in funding from Alliance of Angels.
