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!

“It's so great when you return to home, open your mailbox and find there postcards with friendly words. It doesn't matter in which mood you are: sad, tired or something else; Postcrossing always brings happiness to people! I'm glad to be a member of Postcrossing:)”
