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

“The world is flat, at least that what Friedman said in his book and in fact with Postcrossing it becoming flatter and smaller world. Sending and receiving unexpected postcards from random person is one of the greatest things in my life. We don't know each other, but I read so many great stories of life and about their places. So great.”
