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 makes getting the mail a complete joy!! I never know what I will find when I open my mailbox!! I've met wonderful people, have a pile of postcards I treasure, and now I'm an addict!! Postcrossing is the best!!”
