What is Postcrossing?

It's a project that allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world. 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!

“There's nothing quite like getting home after a long day at work and seeing a new postcard on your doorstep and not knowing who or where it's come from. It opens my eyes to places that I'd probably never even have known about had it not been for postcrossing!”
