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!

Our happy members

“I'm loving Postcrossing, I wish I had found this years ago. To connect with a stranger from across the world, and share some facts, news or gossip is a wonderful thing. People are so giving of their time and efforts!”
