User testimonials

“it is so refreshing to receive postcards in the morning! It never gets old. The feeling in the mornings that something great awaits you in the mailbox is so invigorating. That beneath the stack of bills and letters, you'll find a nicely written postcard. Postcrossing has also enabled me to widen my network of friends from all around the world. Thank you Postcrossing for giving my mailbox a new lease of life!”
