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!

“There is such a sweetness to Postcrossing the the world often seems to lack in this busy world of survival. To think that someone shares a part of their world, their time, thoughts and stamps is a true blessing..Thank you..Postcrossers!”
