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!

“I'm a postcrosser since 2013, I feel good when I receive a random postcard sent from somewhere, a place that i didn't know before. I enjoy the message that someone carefully write for me, the stamps are always beautiful too. Thank you so much for this wonderful website.”
