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

“Every time I get a card it makes me happy and smiling. Because it is exciting to learn something about someone else. Because it has made me see that people really are the same everywhere on the globe. And because Postcrossing is about sending peaceful messages - it earns the Nobel Peace Prize”
