What is Postcrossing?

It's a project that allows you to send postcards and receive postcards back from random people around the world. 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!

“This project is the most fantastic that I have seen in my life. It has almost 6 months that I have been traveling around the world through the gorgeous and beautiful postcards that I have been received...The words that people have written really make my day special. I just love this project!!!”
