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

“It has opened up the world to me, a non-traveler. I have seen places and exchanged words with people I would have never met before. It has given me something to share with my 90 yr old grandmother and she is as excited to get the mail as me. Every day a new corner of the globe is illuminated.”
