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 love to send and receive mail! Everyday I open my mailbox I find something new - from the bustling city of Berlin to the quiet streets of Singapore, I can't wait to experience what the postcards have to offer! And everyday I hope that a postcard will come - it has become my life!”
