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

“I love snail mail and every time I receive a postcard I feel very lucky because I have the chance to see a place in the world with the point of view of the sender. On the other side, when I send a postcard, I can write freely my thoughts and my habits being sure it will be appreciated!”
