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

“Postcrossing is pure joy and excitement. The excitement is contagious. I have infected my husband!! He wants to read and see them. Every postcard gets a conversation going about the sender, the card and country. Pure joy and excitement!!”
