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 should have come with a warning label, because I was addicted within a fortnight. It's a fantastic experience and it's impossible to say whether sending or receiving cards is most fun. In merely two months I've received cards all the way from Japan, and sent all the way to Malaysia!”
