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?

  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

“It gives you the opportunity to get to know something about different people around the world. And it's a win-win situation, because you get to make others happy, and they make you happy, too! Just because of postcards, it's simple and nice! :-)”
