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 is one of the best things I ever did with the help of the internet! Postcrossing gives me the chance to be connected with such a lot of fascinating people all over the world! Oh and I love to prospect for postcards wherever I am to find one which might me matching to someone's interests.”
