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


“It has been a great privilege to send pieces of paper, of card, of joy to fellow humans time and time again
Neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep us from our mission to spread joy and love”
