What is Postcrossing?

It's a project that allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world. Learn more.

How does it work?

  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 absolutely exciting to get postcards from all over the world. I love the surprise where the next card comes from and everything that people share with me, what they are doing, what life is like in their country. It is a fantastic way of getting to know the world a little better! I love it!”
