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

“When I receive a postcard my heart soars like an eagle! Of the billions of people on earth, it takes my breath away that a single person, thousands of miles away, took the time to write to ME. Though we may never meet, their words will forever be etched in my heart. I am thankful for being able to be a part of sharing. I await the next one. White Wolf, Earth”
