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 really does make one feel that you are part of a global community. It is such a simple, yet effective way to connect with people and countries you otherwise never would have. It's great to receive an interesting card on which someone has shared a little bit about themselves & their lives - I love it!”
