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!

“...Postcrossing connects the whole world and we Postcrosser are all the same :-)
- It makes no difference from which country you are
- It makes no difference what skin colour you have
- It makes no difference what religion you belong to
- It makes no difference what gender you are
- It makes no difference how old you are
- It makes no difference if you are rich or poor
We Postcrosser are all one ... and that is why I like Postcrossing so much :-)”
