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?
- Request an address and a Postcard ID
- Mail a postcard to that address
- Receive a postcard from another postcrosser!
- Register the Postcard ID you have received
- Go to number 1 to receive more postcards!

“When I buy stacks of postcards the cashier asks me, "Do you collect postcards." I reply, "No, not really." When I purchase postage stamps from stamp dealers, from post offices and over the internet, I am asked, "Do you collect stamps?" My response, "No, not really." What I like to think I am doing is collecting smiles, smiles from fellow Postcrossers. And in return, I hope, with my stack of postcards and my selection of stamps, that I am contributing to collections of smiles around the globe.”
