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´s every day a lovely surprise, every day new cards, every day cards from special places all over the world. It´s so wonderful to see, how much the other people love your cards and to feel this friendship :) Postcrossing is just amazing!”
