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?
Some months ago, we were intrigued by a request on katilemur's profile which read asked members to draw dachshunds on their postcards. We wondered... did she receive a lot of them drawn on her postcards?

“It has enriched my life more than I ever imagined it could !! Postcrossing seems to be a brilliant synthesis of old and new styles of interchange in a world that seems too often to move too quickly. It is never as fantastic as receving a postcard from somewhere in the world. No communication method can give such a happiness of receiving a postcard !!”
