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 like Twitter for snail mail, it lets me interact with people all over the world, it gives me a taste of other cultures, it gives me something to look forward to in the mailbox everyday. Surprise! A postcard from Germany! :)”
