✉ Postcrossing ✉
The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world.
How does it work?
request an address from the website
mail the postcard to the address
wait to receive a postcard
register the received postcard in the system
- 23,140,667 postcards have been received because of this project
- 486,777 postcards are traveling at this exact moment
- 14,530,866 (62%) postcard images were uploaded to Postcrossing
- 15 days is the median postcard travel time. 22 days is the average.
- 118,243,848,276 km traveled (or 2,950,563 laps around the earth or 153,801 return trips to the moon or 395 return trips to the sun!)
My mom and I recently started using this website called Postcrossing. The website allows you to send and receive postcards from all around the globe. It’s been a lot of fun and I highly encourage signing up if you have a few cents to spare for stamps! It’s been a ton of fun drawing and writing postcards to send all over (to Venezuela, the UAE, Slovakia, Russia, China, and many more!).
