What is Postcrossing?

It's a project that allows you to send postcards and receive postcards back from random people around the world. That's real postcards, not electronic! Learn more.

How does it work?

  1. Request an address and a Postcard ID
  2. Mail a 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!

Our happy members


“Joining Postcrossing is one of the best experience in my life! It gives me a special kind of happiness every time I receive a postcard from people in different countries and when someone receives the postcard I sent. It's a great feeling that I can share with other people my passion in writing.

I look forward to many years in Postcrossing!”
