Blog > 70! MILLION! POSTCARDS! 🥳 🥳 🥳

  icon

What a way to start the year in style, with 70 million postcards in the hands of postcrossers all around the world! 🎉🎉🎉

It’s been almost two years since we last celebrated one of these milestones (10 million postcards ago), so if you do the math, this means we’re averaging about five million postcards per year here in Postcrossing… which is pretty impressive! Well done, everyone! Whether you’ve sent one single postcard or 10 thousand of them, you’ve contributed to this milestone too!

Can you guess how far we’d get if we made a little path with these 70 million postcards, all put together side by side? It’s a line that stretches aaaaaaall the way from London to Sydney down under! Or from New York to Melbourne!

I guess what you really want to know is which postcard was the lucky one, and who guessed the correct time at which postcard 70 million was registered. So, without further ado…

Postcard number 70,000,000 (US-9001590) was sent by jmorris in the USA on 26 December 2022, and registered on 04 January 2023 23:36 (UTC) by BowieGirl, also in the USA!

The postcrosser with the best aim on our guessing game was henna168, whose bet was spot on! Keep an eye on your mailbox for your new box of 100 postcards, which will be on its way soon!

The other lucky postcrossers who came super close to the correct second were _Vika_, serenji14, Larch, LeviEng, sharkee and Mirunka! You will each receive a set of nice postcards as well. We hope you like it!

No matter where you are, or how many postcards you’ve sent, we hope you take a moment today to do a little dance and celebrate this nice milestone! This community is made of so many different people, and we’re thankful for each and every one of you. Your passion for happy mail and for connecting the world is the reason this project exists!

Ok, enough sappiness… let’s go brighten some mailboxes, and see if we can make it to 80,000,000 postcards before January 2025! 💪

Why is Postcrossing mostly German? I have been getting nothing but postcards from Germay and address to send to from Germany. I am going to unsubscribe. I wanted to hear from people all over the world. What a disappointment.l

Beyond the participation of each of us, it is a reflection of your work to make the Postcrossing site work. A special thank you to you, to us too and we will all be present to continue and keep this course.
The proof is that the postal administrations issue stamps on this theme of correspondence. In this particular world these postcards are the honey of our life.
Happy New Year and see you at the next score

Because of my two year anniversary of which Postcrossing reminded me, I put this formal haiku on 5-7-5

Postcrossing tells me
All things have a beginning
Anniversary

Now wondering when the second 70 Million Anniversary will be.
Congratulations to all Postcrossers and to all postal services.
