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?

  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's the old fashion way of communicating and I love it.
This way I can travel around the world & see wonderful places I normally wouldn't see. Each card is special, because someone I didn't know picked it just for me and took the time to write and sent it. And I too can make people happy this way.”
