What is Postcrossing?
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?
- Request an address and a Postcard ID
- Mail the postcard to that address
- Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
- Register the Postcard ID you have received
- Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

“I love snail mail and every time I receive a postcard I feel very lucky because I have the chance to see a place in the world with the point of view of the sender. On the other side, when I send a postcard, I can write freely my thoughts and my habits being sure it will be appreciated!”
