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

“It makes me dream about what waits for me in this big world outside. I'm just 16 years old and I've been a Postcrossing member for just two months or so, and I feel so in love with this website and all the beautiful windows to the world that I receive in my mailbox thanks to you, Postcrossing team.”
