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!

“Postcrossing is a part of my life.I always became so surprised and happy when I got a new postcard in my box, all of them are so warm, sunny, full of the happiness and love, so I want to share somebody with it.
Best wishes to everybody and happy postcrossing!:)”
