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!

“For a postcard lover like me, Postcrossing is like heaven on earth. The amazing feeling of opening the mail box and finding a postcard from a different country makes my day. Love it so much :)”
