Postcrossing Blog

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

Blog > Postcrossing turns 13!

Hurray! 🎉 It’s Postcrossing’s 13th anniversary!

Thirteen years ago today was the start of this great adventure that keeps connecting the world through postcards. It’s been a great ride so far, not without its ups and downs, but always a fulfilling and learning experience. On this special day, we’d like to say thank you to all of you out there who still take pleasure in sending postcards to strangers, trusting that this small gesture will make their days a little better. Thank you for believing in this idea, and for coming along for the ride — we wouldn’t have made it without you!

Sometime ago we went back to Braga and took a photo of the balcony where everything started, in a student’s house next to the university. Paulo points it out:

The birthplace of Postcrossing

It’s still there, now housing different students and being witness to their adventures. May theirs be as grand as this one has been so far! 😊

Happy anniversary! Thank you so much for creating postcrossing and keeping it going! It has really changed many lives and brightens people's day! It has forged new friendships and perhaps some romance too? Nothing makes me happier than checking my email each morning to see what's arrived to it's destination, and then checking my mailbox to see what goodies await me! THANK YOU!!!! :)

I loved mail as a kid. It was used much more then for personal correspondence. Postcrossing opened up my life again to the beauty of connecting through mail nearly four years and 1500 postcards (sent) ago! I have several penfriends! And I meet with a group of Postcrossers twice a year. I could go on and on how Postcrossing starts my mornings, how the World Cup has been made more special with postcards from Russia, how Iโ€™ve discovered that most people the world over just want peace and love in their lives. Thank you for establishing such a wonderful way to reach out and be reached for:)

Alles Gute zum 13. Jahrestag - happy 13th anniversary!
I loved to write letters and postcards all my life, thanks to my mum who encouraged me and set a good example: Her many, many postcards always were fully written. ;)
Since last year, my mom isn't with us anymore, but my love for postcards persists. And I can always send and receive them thanks to Postcrossing! I'm so glad that this project exists. :)
