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!

“Postcrossing is spreading kindness around like confetti! ❤ The thrill we get when we open our mailbox is just one of the best and positive moments of our day! Postcrossing allows us to promote the beauty of our planet. Let's keep it up, my friends!??”
