CHOOSE FROM THE FOLLOWING MANUSCRIPTS:

SOPHIE’S HANDWRITING:

Choose from 16 predefined Sophie manuscripts. All handwritings come from friends of the Hürlimann print shop. There are two to three variations per letter to ensure a natural and authentic typeface. With these fonts you can individualise addresses, salutations and every text passage.

Sophies Handwriting Fonts

OWN HANDWRITING:

There are two options. Option 1: You write the text by hand and send it scanned to us by email. The robots copy your text one-to-one. Option 2: We digitise your handwriting and you can individualise addresses, salutations and every part of the text.

OWN SIGNATURE:

Sophie can sign in your personal signature or combine several different signatures in one document. Most commonly used by our clients are the predefined Sophie handwritings for continuous text, combining the original signature.

SOPHIE IN PRODUCTION

Sophie writes 100 or even 100 000 messages and this also on special papers or labels. As a true Swiss, she is naturally characterised by her punctuality, reliability, discretion and a high level of quality. It turned out that she is more efficient and cost-effective than a member of the management or a salesperson who writes Christmas greetings himself.

100% stylish, clean and natural. 100% relief guaranteed. Sophie is efficient and best supporter for you and your team.

Sophie’s handwriting is real handwriting because it has all the typical features, such as the word spacing, the imprint thickness or the individual spelling of the letters. You can easily combine the print, your handwritten messages and even your signature if you wish: After all, a written signature is much nicer and more personal than a printed signature.

In addition to the actual printed product such as a letter or card, you can also simply write on the envelope as if by hand. Handwritten addressing increases the chance that your letters will be opened and read.

Our tip: Use classic stamps instead of automatic franking. We will be happy to stick the stamps for you.

Robot Sophie is part of the team at Druckerei Hürlimann. Accordingly, you have access to all our products and services: Our high-quality papers, razor-sharp printing, our automated data reconciliation, the affixing of stamps and, of course, dispatch are optionally available to you!

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS & MEDIAS ARE SAYING

«We wanted to do something special for the launch of our intranet. A personal connection to our employees and showing appreciation are very important to us – so a handwritten card was the obvious choice. Sophie made it possible for all employees to receive a card handwritten by me (that is, Sophie) – along with a sweet surprise. No difference to my handwriting could be detected. Our employees were very impressed and pleased with the card. A big thank you to the entire Hürlimann team for the great quality and impeccable implementation.»

Lic. iur. Béatrice Schaeppi, CEO, Schaeppi Grundstücke Verwaltungen KG

«Sophie wrote my holiday greetings in my handwriting so authentically that even the included drawing of a Santa hat looked identical to the original. I have used the service repeatedly and now look forward to writing Christmas cards. I would like to thank the Hürlimann printing team for the expert advice as well as the quick and competent implementation!»

Dirk Cohausz, Eden McCallum

«Thanks to Sophie, we were able to delight our recipients. We received a lot of positive feedback on our Christmas cards. A straightforward order process, top quality and punctual delivery – simply a successful product.»

Alex Sturzenegger, Manager, Printplus AG

Sophie likes to write with a fountain pen or ballpoint pen. She loves the authenticity of real ink and the light imprint left by a ballpoint pen. But Sophie also enjoys using other commercially available pens in all colors. Depending on the paper texture, one pen may be more suitable than the other. Sophie’s colleagues are well informed and happy to advise you.

Sophie writes about as fast as a human, but Sophie never gets tired. On peak days, she writes around the clock and doesn’t even need a coffee break. In addition, she doesn’t write alone but is supported by her many robot colleagues! This means even large orders are completed promptly!

For confidentiality reasons, Sophie may not name names. Among others, she writes for board members, CEOs and other people who have little time, have always wanted nice handwriting or simply value a personal touch.

The handwriting and especially the signatures of our customers are stored on secure servers in-house. These can be deleted upon request after completion of the project. And Sophie herself goes on strike if she’s not given the correct password. Samples of customer handwriting are only published by Sophie with the express permission of our customers. The same applies to photos and videos on this website, on social media channels and to media coverage around Sophie in general.
