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

“It's the old fashion way of communicating and I love it.
This way I can travel around the world & see wonderful places I normally wouldn't see. Each card is special, because someone I didn't know picked it just for me and took the time to write and sent it. And I too can make people happy this way.”
