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!

“It has enriched my life more than I ever imagined it could !! Postcrossing seems to be a brilliant synthesis of old and new styles of interchange in a world that seems too often to move too quickly. It is never as fantastic as receving a postcard from somewhere in the world. No communication method can give such a happiness of receiving a postcard !!”
