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

“Ever since my friend introduced me to postcrossing I have been smiling to myself all the time at the thought of it all, that you send and receive from 100s of countries around the world. Receiving a postcard the traditional way is so much more satisfying and exciting! I am going to do this for my whole life! No doubt!”
