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!
What is happening now?
The other day, while randomly browsing the internet for inspiration, I chanced upon a Japanese Tumblr, where I noticed all the beautifully decorated postcards... which upon further inspection, proved to be actual Postcrossing cards!
22,370,664 postcards received
506,310 postcards traveling
114,553,942,156 km traveled
2,858,489 laps around the world
“It is so pleasant to put your hand into mailbox and find there something you expected to get! I`m sure - nothing can replace traditional post!”
