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

“Postcrossing is like an oasis for me. When I felt so exhausted about my day, receiving a postcard will make me happy again! My favourite part are reading the email from receiver and registering the postcard that I received.
I hope all of you as happy as I am!
Happy Postcrossing <3”
