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!

“It's a window to the world in which Postcrossing creates understanding about people and their cultures in the most simple way there is; just by sending and receiving a postcard. Wouldn't the world be a great(er) place if all inhabitants of this wonderful planet joined Postcrossing?”
