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

“It brings the world into your postbox and into your home. I learn a lot from Postcrossing, it turns me into a dreamer, and it shows me places where very few people can boast that they had seen it all.”
