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?

“I love Postcrossing because I have always been interested in international friendship and exchanging my culture with others from around the world. It is not only a place to send and receive postcards, but it is also a place to make friendships you otherwise wouldn't!”
