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!

“Such a simple, yet amazing concept. My Mum and I enjoy post crossing, and we have cork boards around the house of all the postcards we've received. I hope to enjoy many more years of post crossing!”
