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 is so exciting to receive postcards in the mailbox. I realize that people are people no matter where they live. We are all really alike, we enjoy same things in life and are sad about same things. A little girl from Russia wrote me that it was so hot in Russia that even ice-cream did not help. That totally made sense to me, that was HOT.”
