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

“Wanderlust has always consumed me, but postcrossing has made me want to travel the world so much more. I love connecting with people through postcards, receiving awesome ones is just as fun as sending them. On several occasions, getting a postcard in the mail has really made my day, and I couldn't be more grateful. carpe diem!”
