It's a project that allows anyone to receive postcards (real ones, not electronic) from random places in the world. Learn more.

How does it work?

  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

“Postcrossing connects the world indeed. The excitement of seeing the postman turning around the bend is immeasurable. It needs to be felt to be understood. No two cards are the same, just like two individuals. Each one contains a little beating heart and loads of love. Postcrossing is the embodiment of hope. I simply <3 it!”
