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 love Postcrossing because I have always been interested in international friendship and exchanging my culture with others from around the world. It is not only a place to send and receive postcards, but it is also a place to make friendships you otherwise wouldn't!”
