What Our Customers 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

What the Media Is Saying

Sophie’s handwriting is indistinguishable from real handwriting because it has all the characteristics of human penmanship, such as the word spacing, writing pressure and individual shape of the letters.

You can easily combine your print materials, your handwritten messages and even your signature if desired: A written signature is much more appealing and personal than a printed signature.

In addition to the actual printed materials such as a letter or a card, you can also opt to only have the envelope addressed as if by hand. Hand-addressed letters have a better chance of being opened and read.

Our tip: Use classic stamps instead of automatic postage. We’re happy to handle the application of the stamps for you.

Sophie the Robot is part of the Hürlimann printing company. This means our full range of products and services is at your disposal: from our high-quality papers, razor-sharp print and automated data synchronization to the application of stamps and optional shipping.

Sophie’s Handwriting

Sophie’s Experience

Sophie the Robot (and her numerous colleagues) have already been able to prove themselves in many great projects. They write texts and messages as if by hand for

  • Letters and postcards
  • Envelope addressing

  • Christmas and New Year’s cards

  • Advertising campaigns

  • Motivational letters for employees

  • Dining and cocktail menus

  • Customer acquisition letters

  • Reminders

  • Event invitations

  • Products tags

  • Packaging sleeves

  • Online shop thank-you cards

Whether 100 or 100,000 messages, Sophie can write them on the specialty paper or label of your choice.

True to her Swiss nature, she shines with her punctuality, reliability, discretion and exceptional quality.
She has also proven to be more efficient and less expensive than if a member of management or a salesperson writes the holiday greetings him- or herself.

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.
