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

“It's nice to think someone, somewhere may have a smile on there face because a little piece of my life has reached them today. I know I have when I find a postcard on my doorstep. Thank you to everyone who partakes.”
