News, updates, and all kinds of goodies and stories from the postal world!

Blog > One, two, three! 3 million postcrossing postcards!

When the Postcrossing project was launched 4 years ago, no one would guess that it could ever reach one million postcards. But it did, and, we have just reached 3 times that! What a milestone! Three million postcards! Three million connections! Three million smiles! We couldn’t be prouder of being part of this project.

3 million

And, this couldn’t be reached without every single member of Postcrossing, so a big thank you to you all for making it happen!

But, we know many of you are anxiously waiting to know who were the lucky members that exchanged this special postcard. So without further delays:

3 million

The postcard 3 million travelled from arjakos in Finland, to klemko in Slovenia! Congratulations to both for being part of such an important milestone in Postcrossing!

And, finally, congratulations Sara-Gandalf (from Slovenia!) – you are the lucky winner of our contest by being the first to guess correctly the countries involved on this unique postcard.

International Girl Aerogrammes The winner of the contest, the sender and receiver of the postcard 3 million will receive aerogrammes packs kindly offered by the folks behind Int’l Girl Aerogrammes. If you aren’t one of the the lucky ones, be sure to check their website – their aerogrammes are designed with love, come in different languages and are printed in recyclable paper. Each aerogramme is a little piece of art that takes your message directly to those you love. Can you tell how much we love them?

Shall we start the countdown to the postcard 4 million? :)

I just did some quick calculations and, if we keep the current pace we have going, we should reach 4 million approximately the 2nd last week of December. But the pace is gaining speed rather than staying static, is that right Paulo?

Congratulations to arjakos and klemko for 3 million worth of fun. So much fun counting down and being part of the fun on the forum. I am glad I am part of this project.

paulo, Portugal
Thank you everyone! :)

@dollart: You can see the dates of 1st and 2nd million on our history page: http://postcrossing.com/about/history

@Lori45P: It's hard to say when exactly the 4th million will be. But yes, it is speeding up. So I would expect the 4th million to be in less than 7 months! :)

rnbastos, Brazil
wooohooooo! congrats everyone who made postcrossing get to that number (and, sure, specially to the one who send the 3-millionth card. heheh)

this is very cool... when I joined the site, it was "almost" getting to 2 mil... that was fast! :)
on


Lori45P, Canada
For anyone interested, a stack of 3 million postcards would (based on an average size of 4"x6"), and covering an area on the ground of 2 feet x 1-1/4 feet would reach approximately 977 feet into the air, which is the same height as the Sutro Tower in San Francisco (www.sutrotower.org)

Since we're getting more and more members daily, provided the older members continue to Postcross, the growth rate should be exponential! =D
Thanks to everyone, especially Paulo, for creating this wonderful project!

mettyfauziah, Indonesia
To think that the count from 2 million to 3 million postcards is achieved within 1 year, it's amazing, isn't it? I think we should raise the bar from 3 million to 6 million this time and see how fast it will take to get to the number :)

Way to go, Postcrossing!
on


solarts66, United States of America
Way to go! I put in my 12 cents in. I sent out my 12 postcards before the 3 million postcards goal. That is sure a lot of postcards!
I wander what the statistics was from where and the number of people who sent out the most postcards?
That would be interesting to find out.
Cheers!
