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 gives me an opportunity to 'see' places where I may never be in my life. Every time I receive a card, I'm reminded of how vast this world is, how many different people there are, and how many things I can do as an individual to give a smile to someone else in this world.”
