It's a project that allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world. Learn more.

How does it work?

  2. Mail the postcard to that address
  3. Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
  4. Register the Postcard ID you have received
  5. Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

“There is such a sweetness to Postcrossing the the world often seems to lack in this busy world of survival. To think that someone shares a part of their world, their time, thoughts and stamps is a true blessing..Thank you..Postcrossers!”
