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!

“Postcrossing is like a breath of fresh air in the world filled with Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, WhatsApp and others.

The joy of sending and receiving postcards cannot be described but has to be experienced. I have made a good acquaintance recently with a fellow Postcrosser staying 8000 miles away from me! Where else do you get such opportunity?

Postcrossing for me: Fun as well as informative!”
