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?

  1. Request an address and a Postcard ID
  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!

User testimonials

“I'm a postcard nut, I love the backs of them as much as the fronts, the little slivers of personality that arrive in my letter box, from the card they chose to the note they write, reminds me that we're all unique and makes the big world seem a little bit smaller.”
