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've only been in involved in Postcrossing for a little over three months, but I really love it. Apart from the obvious joy of sending and receiving post cards and choosing the right card and stamps, what I like is that the color of my skin, hair and eyes doesn't matter. It doesn't matter what I look like, how old I am, what my job is, what I drive, where I work or how much money I have or don't have. People still happily send me post cards and people are happy to receive the ones I send.”
