Blog > Happy 14th Birthday, Postcrossing!


Hurray! 🎉 It’s Postcrossing’s birthday! 🎉

On this day 14 years ago, Paulo typed a command on his computer, and just like that, the Postcrossing adventure had started. Fast forward fourteen years and nearly 53 million of postcards later, we now have many happy mailboxes filled to the brim, and smiles all around. As Uncle Alex used to say, “If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is”.

On this day, we are feeling especially warm and fuzzy inside, so please forgive our sappiness. We’d like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone of you out there, who joined us on this journey.

Happy 14th Birthday, Postcrossing!

Thank you for your trust in this big idea, for every postcard that you send to a grandparent, or a child, or a stranger that you don’t know much about. We firmly believe that all these postcards, small as they might be, have an important role to play in helping us see our common ground, while simultaneously broadening our horizons.

Thank you to our forum moderators as well, and to everyone who puts in the time to help postcrossers on the forum. Thank you to our Ambassadors, for coming up with new ways to spread the word. And thank you to all our supporters as well! You keep our servers running, and the project moving forward.

Thank you also for the many messages of support that we receive every day, through your emails, comments, tweets and posts, testimonials or postcards. Your words of encouragement and joy are what fuels us to keep going. Thank you, thank you, thank you. ❤️

Our fresh year that starts today is going to be an exciting one, as we’ve been busy working on some big projects behind-the-scenes. So stay tuned for some good news soon!

Happy Birthday Postcrossing!
I am very happy to have found Postcrossing, the little connections made all around the world.

Thank you so much for all the hard work.

Even though I've only just started Postcrossing and eagerly awaiting my 1st postcard to get to me, (Yes, I'm that I wish Postcrossing the happiest of birthdays. I went to a meet and greet in Columbus on April 13th to support my gf with her hobby and I met a wonderful group of people. I also see just how happy my gf is when she gets a reply from someone that really loved the postcard they received. I want to make that kind of a difference in other people's lives like she does, even if it's just a simple thing like a postcard, some washi tape, cool stamps and a kind words. Thank you for such a simply genius idea.

Happy Birthday, Postcrossing and Many More! This project has truly brightened my life! I have had some health issues in recent years. No matter how I have felt, Postcrossing always cheers me up. Realizing that a postcard I sent has arrived at its destination or seeing a postcard for me in my mailbox always gives me a boost!
Selina0629, Taiwan
Thank you, Postcrossing! I always get surprised and inspired by a far-away postcard. Just a few days ago, I came up with an idea which is to write a new one each time I meet up with my BF. We're currently in a long distance relationship and I think doing something like this, which is to cooperate and wait patiently for that surprise, is sure to strengthen our connection in some way. We love you!

Postcrossing is a very important part of my life. I’ve woven other mail hobbies through its tendrils, made friends who are now penpals, discovered an amazing group of Postcrossers to hang out with twice a year at meetups. I love buying new postage stamps, washi tape, pens, stickers and, oh yes, postcards! Thank you and Happy Birthday to dear Postcrossing! ♥️🎉♥️

"We firmly believe that all these postcards, small as they might be, have an important role to play in helping us see our common ground"

That's a lovely sentiment and one that is made manifest time and again on Postcrossing. I've been a member for over five years and am still delighted with my decision to join. I think of Postcrossing as the social media that's actually sociable! 🥳

Thank you Paulo and Ana for your commitment to this amazing project, and congratulations on Postcrossing's 14th birthday! 🎂
alterego, Canada
Thank you for the best hobby ever! I joined 11 years ago and would never have guessed that I would still be active and loving it so much all these years later. Postcrossing not only connects people geographically; it connects generations and cultures in a way nothing else can. Governments and politicians could learn a lot here!

So congratulations and here's to the next 14 (plus!)

AllSerene, United Kingdom
Happy birthday Postcrossing and many thanks for both thinking of, and then setting up and running a fantastic scheme! Being generally housebound, it makes a huge difference to my quality of life, both to receive postcards of places I'll never be able to visit in person and to make contact with people I'd never otherwise come across.

Postcrossing is my "I'm home place" - As a Veteran I often hear "Thank you for your service" and "Welcome home." Rather than saying Happy Birthday to Postcrossing I'll simply say, "Thanks for your service" and thanks for giving me the amazing home to go to.

A very Happy 14th Birthday to Postcrossing. This year will mark my 10th as a Postcrosser. . .I only wish I had found it sooner. When I started my own collection, postcards were few and far between in my mailbox. Now, they come (and go) from all over the world at a much better pace. A toast to Paulo (for PT-1) and Ana, and all who participate!

A very happy birthday Postcrossing!!!
I'm so grateful to my friends, who introduced me to this fun project. Last weekend we were on a small holiday trip together and found some lovely new postcards. The nice lady, who sold them to us, was happily listening to us explaining the project and even found some lovely older cards she gifted to us. I hope to make many postcrossers happy with them!

I am very glad that I read about postcrossing in the newspaper about half a year ago. Meanwhile even my children ask every day: Mum, did you get a postcard today? Where does it come from ?
But I think it's just as nice to pick a specific card FOR someone, to write a personal message, and to know that I'm making someone happy with it.
What a great success story! Each postcard brings up a smile on a face - almost 53 million times and many more times in the future.

Happy birthday and thank you for this absolutely wonderful project! I love to buy postcards and new stamps, get addresses all around the world, send out and receive postcards. Every postcard in my mailbox puts a smile on my face. Thank you Paolo and Ana!

Happy birthday, postcrossing.
Postcrossing gave me hope again in humanity and that it’s possible to be kind to strangers with just finding few minutes writing few words and that it doesn’t matter if we don’t speak same language, we are not same colour, same age or if we are poor or rich. But we all know our few minutes spent writing the postcard will 💯 % make that person day just little bit better when it will be received. And that is well spend few minutes. So thank you to all of you for making my day better every time I receive postcard.

Thank you! thank you! thank you! for this wonderful ambassadorship. I have developed some wonderful friendships through Postcrossing. The hilight has been meeting some of my Postcrossing friends in person in the Netherlands and Czech Republic. It is amazing to read about people that have the same likes and loves, interests, and troubles, as we ourselves do - and they may live a world away in a different culture. Thank you also for the opportunity to connect different generations.

Happy Birthday Postcrossing. Joining this project has been one of the greatest joys. It's my BIGGEST lesson of all and the best thing is that Postcrossing unites people of all beliefs, creeds and cultures and this can only be a huge plus for our fragile planet.
Looking forward to the next 15 years and hoping the numbers in Australia can rise well above the approximately 7 500 members at the present time.

Happy Birthday! My use of Postcrossing is a little bit like a wave with ups and downs but it is always a joy to write a card and receive a card. It helped me in difficult times and is pure pleasure in all personal situations.
I thank you very much that you create Postcrossing and I am sure the world is a better place with it.
