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's a window to the world in which Postcrossing creates understanding about people and their cultures in the most simple way there is; just by sending and receiving a postcard. Wouldn't the world be a great(er) place if all inhabitants of this wonderful planet joined Postcrossing?”
