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 has been in my life from the teenage age until now in my mid-20s. It's always been a safe space for me where I could relax and have interesting conversations with so many nice people around the world. There are so many warm-hearted people here who go the extra mile to put a smile on a stranger's face. I couldn't think of a better hobby. ♥”
