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!

“I will never ever forget my cheer when checking my mailbox for the first time finding that a card from a foreigner was lying inside. Thanks Postcrossing for giving me the chance of meeting so many friends from all over the world!”
