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

- Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
- Register the Postcard ID you have received
- Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

“Postcrossing is pure joy and excitement. The excitement is contagious. I have infected my husband!! He wants to read and see them. Every postcard gets a conversation going about the sender, the card and country. Pure joy and excitement!!”
