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 meeting so many friendly people all over the world and every day feels like a holiday when I open our mailbox and find a new card waiting for me. Thank you for creating this wonderful project! Happy Postcrossing!”
