  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 really does make one feel that you are part of a global community. It is such a simple, yet effective way to connect with people and countries you otherwise never would have. It's great to receive an interesting card on which someone has shared a little bit about themselves & their lives - I love it!”
