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!

“Every day is special, and the days I get a postcard is extra special. Something so small and brings so much joy! Living way down here near the bottom of the world makes it very expensive to travel anywhere and the receiving of a card takes me briefly to a part of the world I will never visit. Thank you! Thank you everyone.”
