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!

“I love getting post! But now it is like an adventure. My kids cannot wait to see where the next one comes from. The hunting for nice postcards is also adding to the fun. It is like a little geography lesson every time you go to your postbox! Happy postcrossing!”
