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!

User testimonials

“Postcrossing has made me realize that no matter how far away we are from each other, or what language we speak, we are all basically the same. I received a card from a little girl in Russia who said it was so hot there that even ice cream did not help. All the world loves ice cream and Postcrossing.”
