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?

  1. Request an address and a Postcard ID
  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

“I love Postcrossing because of the wonderful friends I have made. I joined Postcrossing 3 years ago, and since then I have met so many amazing people who I now consider firm friends. I have met a group of people in my hometown in New Zealand, and I recently travelled to Europe where I met many 'international' Postcrossers.”
