About Postcrossing

Learn all about Postcrossing.

This project is brought to you by...

We are a group of people who are passionate about postcards and connecting with others through them.


Paulo (paulo)

Paulo created Postcrossing to solve a problem he had: he wanted to receive more postcards on his mailbox. A small idea and 76 million postcards later, now he manages the project and its development full-time. When he's not pushing buttons, he loves to run and to look for hidden treasures.


Ana (meiadeleite)

Ana helps members from all around the world to use Postcrossing and is also the editor and curator of the project's blog.
She's addicted to cute stationery, loves eggs and is the head chef at the HQ kitchen.


Vicki (mundoo)

Vicki is a trusty all-things-Postcrossing adviser and helps run the forum. She takes care of many of the tasks that allow Postcrossing to run smoothly.
She's also into geocaching and loves to photograph the sunrises on Hindmarsh Island.


Nicky (shanaqui)

Nicky helps with support and maintenance tasks. They breathe books, raise rabbits and eat university degrees like candy (3 and counting!).


Iris (scrutiny)
Hong Kong

Iris helps reply to the avalanche of emails we receive every day.
She’s a fan of letters, journals and postcards, and can often be found typing away at her vintage typewriter.


Olga (kelpie)

Olga helps connect with the large Russian speaking community. She likes whales and has a soft spot for Kooky.


Chie (Chieusa)

Chie helps keep the Postal Monitor up to date. She likes growing plants for herself and unintentionally for rabbits and slugs.
