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?
- Request an address and a Postcard ID
- Mail the postcard to that address
- Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
- Register the Postcard ID you have received
- Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

“It gives you the opportunity to get to know something about different people around the world. And it's a win-win situation, because you get to make others happy, and they make you happy, too! Just because of postcards, it's simple and nice! :-)”
