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!

User testimonials

“Joining Postcrossing is one of the best experience in my life! It gives me a special kind of happiness every time I receive a postcard from people in different countries and when someone receives the postcard I sent. It's a great feeling that I can share with other people my passion in writing.

I look forward to many years in Postcrossing!”
