What is Postcrossing?

It's a project that allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world. Learn more.

How does it work?

  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!
