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

“Postcrossing is like opening the doors to the world.

Every member I meet is someone like me - just someone wanting to share some thoughts and experiences from their little corner of the globe

I think it's the closest thing we have to world peace ♥”
