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!

“It's not only a way to discover the world , it's a way to discover other people on this planet I never will meet. And it's a way to discover myself. I have received so much cards filled with love, kisses and hugs....peace is a postcard that travels the world. Thank you that I can be a part of it.....”
