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!

“It's like Twitter for snail mail, it lets me interact with people all over the world, it gives me a taste of other cultures, it gives me something to look forward to in the mailbox everyday. Surprise! A postcard from Germany! :)”
