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

“I like Postcrossing because it offered me a fun way to overcome my fear of leaving my house. After being indoors for almost two years and living like a hermit, I challenged myself to go on small trips to the post office as often as I dared to, to post cards. Now, after being a member for over a year, I can say that Postcrossing broadened my world in more than one respect. Not only am I not scared anymore, but I also have received postcards from places I will probably never visit myself. Thanks!”

Me, Netherlands
