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 love Postcrossing for many reasons but what I probably love about it most is that it gives me a way to interact with people I would normally never interact with. Talking directly to people of a different cultures, religions, or places I feel is the best way to appreciate the diversity of mankind.”
