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!

“This project is the most fantastic that I have seen in my life. It has almost 6 months that I have been traveling around the world through the gorgeous and beautiful postcards that I have been received...The words that people have written really make my day special. I just love this project!!!”
