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?

  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

“It's like Twitter for snail mail, it lets me interact with people all over the world, it gives me a taste of other cultures, it gives me something to look forward to in the mailbox everyday. Surprise! A postcard from Germany! :)”
