What is Postcrossing?

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?

  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!

“It has enriched my life more than I ever imagined it could !! Postcrossing seems to be a brilliant synthesis of old and new styles of interchange in a world that seems too often to move too quickly. It is never as fantastic as receving a postcard from somewhere in the world. No communication method can give such a happiness of receiving a postcard !!”
