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 a postcard nut, I love the backs of them as much as the fronts, the little slivers of personality that arrive in my letter box, from the card they chose to the note they write, reminds me that we're all unique and makes the big world seem a little bit smaller.”
