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 love Postcrossing because I have always been interested in international friendship and exchanging my culture with others from around the world. It is not only a place to send and receive postcards, but it is also a place to make friendships you otherwise wouldn't!”
