About Mail Boxes Etc.
Whether you are a business or an individual in the Cayman Islands, Mail Boxes Etc. is here to help. Mail Boxes Etc. offers many specialist services tailored for small businesses, new Cayman residents, online shopping and more.

They are an authorised shipping centre for DHL, FedEx and UPS, and they also offer full postal services.
Mail Boxes Etc.'s printing services include digital colour and black and white copies, binding, laminating, etc. They print business cards, brochures, flyers, invitations and more. They can also take passport photos.
Mail Boxes Etc. offers two types of mailboxes. Physical Mailboxes that you access with a key and Virtual Mailboxes where they will scan the envelope for you so you can view it on a secure app. From the app, you can select what you want them to do with the mail: hold for pick up, shred, recycle, forward. You can also request to open and scan the contents to view as a pdf. The nice thing about the Virtual Mailbox is that you don’t have to go check your mailbox to know what is in it. The two types of mailbox are priced nearly the same.
With a virtual mailbox you have access to your mail anytime, anywhere. In the case of a physical mailbox you have 24 hour access to your PO Box at their location. This is actually almost the same as the Government Post Offices other than the George Town Post Office which has a few hundred boxes which are only accessible when the Post Office is open.
Another bonus with a physical mailbox is that you can have a duplicate key for your post box. On the other hand Cayman Islands Government Post Office does not allow a second post office key to be cut. As hard as you try no key cutter in the Cayman Islands will cut you a second copy! Having two copies of your PO Box key is very very useful, especially for businesses.
