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!

“It improved my knowledge of the world, of its diversity and beauty. It taught me that we are all so different, and at the same time, extraordinarily similar. Postcrossing showed me that there are still wonderful people in the world, and that gives me hope for the future.”
