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!

“Postcrossing really does make one feel that you are part of a global community. It is such a simple, yet effective way to connect with people and countries you otherwise never would have. It's great to receive an interesting card on which someone has shared a little bit about themselves & their lives - I love it!”
