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!

“To me, Postcrossing is a wonderful way to get to know the world a little better. Every day when I come home, I hope to find a new card in my mailbox. You'll get to know people from all around the world: their cultures, their country, their city. It's simply wonderful!”
