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 nothing like a postcard in your letterbox to let you know you're not alone, and bring a smile to your face. It's great to overcome barriers of race and religion and just reach out to each other in the spirit of Friendship. All the world should do postcrossing, we'd be a much calmer, friendlier place.”
