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!

Our happy members

“There is so much love I want to give to Postcrossing. There is nothing like brighten up a bad day by coming home from work and finding a postcard in my mailbox. I love to read the messages the most, to get a glimse into other parts of the world and other peoples lives. Some stories are just so wonderful. I've gotten 3 colleagues to join and one of them sent their first card yesterday.”
