Postcrossing Blog

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

Blog > 60! 🎉 Million! 🎉 Postcards! 🎉

Look at that — we did it, everyone! Together we reached the much awaited milestone of 60 million postcards received! Hurray!

A postcard might not seem like much by itself, but all these millions of postcards carrying our words and handwriting are such important tokens of friendship and connection in these socially distanced times. Traveling is difficult right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share a moment with someone far away and take a peek through their window… right here in our mailboxes.

60 million postcards!

And did you know that if we put all these postcards together side by side, we would get a line stretching from London to Seoul? 🤓 Pretty cool, right? But I know you’re all dying to know who guessed the correct time at which lucky postcard 60 million was registered, so without further ado…

Postcard number 60,000,000 (BY-2711325) was sent by YourWitch in Belarus on January 10 2021, and registered today at 10:17:18 (UTC) by Tominni in Czechia!

Postcard number 60 million!

The postcrosser with the most accurate aim was chrisbonham11, whose guess was spot on! Your shiny new box of 100 postcards will be on its way soon!

The other lucky postcrossers who came the closest to the right second were Dorkius, NZ_Chris, mathalie, majewski, Shih-chia, and stokely — brilliant! You will each receive a set of nice postcards as well.

Whether you’ve sent 1 or 10,000 postcards in the past 15 years, you have our permission to celebrate your contribution to this historical milestone with a celebratory slice of your favorite treat (share it with us on Instagram!)… or just by sitting down at your desk and enjoy sending a postcard today, knowing you’re part of this postcard revolution happening all around us. 😊

And last but not least, if you’ll allow us our weepy moment, we’d just like to say thank you to our lovely team (including all the forum volunteers), to all the supporters and ambassadors, and last but not least, to all of you — you’re the reason Postcrossing keeps going, postcard after postcard. Onwards, to 70 million postcards!

Wow! I cannot believe that I was spot on! Thank you for your good wishes, folks! And a big thank you to the team who run Postcrossing for all of us! I've been sending and receiving postcards on and off through the project since September 2014. I have been especially thankful to have an activity that brings so many others and myself such joy during this year of pandemic and enforced physical isolation from others. At some point next month I expect to hit my own milestone of 1000 postcards sent to others across the world. I'm looking forward to brightening 100 peoples' days with my winning box of postcards. Happy Postcrossing one and all!

What a wonderful achievement 🎉
Congratulations to all the winners 💐
I think we are all winners though, as we send and receive good wishes and love to and from all round the world 🌍. Each small postcard spreads joy - in the sending, in the receiving, in the writing, in the reading, in the viewing 😀.
To the Postcrossing Team I say thank you 👏👏👏 for all you hard work in keeping this site running. The sense of connection we get from this site despite this unusual era of isolation we are all experiencing, is just simply priceless.

Congratulations to Postcrossing and the wonderful team for the great achievement!
I have stopped the postcrossing for a period of time and re-started it in 2021 as it is one of my main goal of the new year!. I received this good news when I am writing my postcards to send out. It is really a great encouragement and happy to be one of the postcrosser.
Congratulations to Chrisbonham11 too and hope I will be one of the lucky postcrosser to receive one of your 1000 postcards in the winning box 😀.

Es ist bereits ein wunderschönes Gefühl, über unsere Postkarten auf der ganzen Welt verbunden zu sein. Über die Freude, uns zu schreiben, uns die schönen Dinge unserer Welt zu zeigen, uns voneinander zu erzählen und über alle Grenzen dieses Miteinander zu empfinden.
Und nun unser gemeinsames Ergebnis : 60 000 000 Karten! Das ist wunderbar! Wir alle im Team zusammen in den verschiedensten Sprachen und Ländern, auf unserer wundervollen Erde!

What a great day -- January 24th is (as I write) my son's birthday, and in his honor, I actually guessed the correct date for the 60 millionith postcard to be registered (but, as usual, my guess was off, timewise). In any event, it was fun to "meet" all the winners of the current Postcrossing Contest and share a wonderful celebration with everyone. (To think this all started with a "Lighthouse") Yes, on to 70 million!

I love that Postcrossing has traveled with me as I moved from one US state to another. I’m sending cards through PC’ing AND to the many friends I’ve made through meetups and penpals I’ve found through this very cool hobby! I made a “barebones” Postcrossing kit to bring with me (our things are in storage til we get into our new home) but who can resist picking up more supplies. The “hobby” calms me and grounds me in stressful times... Happy 60 milllion PC’s Postcrossing ♥️💙♥️

That´s it! The spirit of Postcrossing should be part of the world´s leaderships! Hehe. A great postcard got the no. 60.000.000 (for luck the "0"-button works)!
I wish the very best of luck and health all the people out there, who ever sent a card and who my send a card in future to reach the 70 million milestone.
