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?

  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 is a wonderful surprise to find 5 or 6 postcards from all over the world in your mailbox. It never fails to make me smile and make my day a little better. I think that it's a fun way to get a snapshot of how different people live and what's important to them. It's also a wonderful reminder that there is a lot of beauty in the world :-)”
