Why you should join Postcrossing?

This is an excellent question! First of all its FREE 😉

If you came to this site, you already know what Postcrossing is and what this system of exchanging postcards worldwide is for. Why should you join other participants, and what benefits can you get for yourself?

Postcrossing is a collaborative system of exchanging postcards worldwide for the purpose of connecting people from different countries. Some join because they want to share their love, while others are looking forward on making new friends or even discovering an unknown culture abroad; but no matter what your reason may be why not give it try?

What is Postcrossing - A Quick Guide

People are weaned on the mail. Regular mail, not email. You have a great opportunity to change that!

Every day more and more people join postcrossing as people miss the human interaction, meeting people with interests and simply for the beautiful views of countries and cities depicted on postcards.

I like to open my mailbox because it’s an exciting and unpredictable surprise waiting for me every time.

Why you should join Postcrossing

The person (sender) has signed a postcard for me, and I am always curious and interested to know who this person is, what the weather is like in their city, what they are into, and more. These are the aspects written on my profile because I am interested in them. 

A few years ago, I Yet wrote a request on my profile for the sender to leave their autograph since everyone’s signatures are different and inherently unique!

This is what unites us all around the world – exchanging postcards.

Don’t you want to get into Postcrossing yet?

If you are looking for an exciting and interesting hobby, which does not require large financial outlays and brings maximum pleasure to all family and friends (especially kids love postcrossing), then this is what you need!

P.S. It’s also an excellent opportunity to meet new people and learn more about the country, traditions, and customs.

Sometimes people even make arrangements to meet each other, visit, meet family and become best friends.

I think it’s time to register on the site and sign your first postcard!

A postcard is a letter sent through the postal service. They’re often used as gestures of greeting or farewell, and in some cases may carry important information like donations for charity causes you care deeply about!

The way people communicate with each other has changed dramatically over time due to technology so it’s essential that we keep up-to date on old traditions such as sending letters by mail from one person overseas who can’t get online most days (or even just because).

Every day at least 35 million cards are mailed all across Europe – how many will ever make their way here? That said there’s nothing better than receiving an amazing hand written note saying “Hi”!

Postcrossing is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the culture of different countries. For instance, on top of learning about one another, Postcrossing can teach you how to speak Grammatical German by correcting mistakes in your card’s message.

Postcrossing is also great at re-introducing you to various cultures that may have once been lost to you throughout past wars or hard times. Every day people are finding new friends all over the world with the help of postcards. There are lots of reasons why you should join postcrossing! 🙂

  1. I have been a member of Postcrossing for over 10 years, and found it to be very enjoyable. It enables me to be creative in several stages of the process. There is the choosing of the card itself, then choosing the proper stamps, and then composing the message itself. I can make it as simple or as intricate as I like.

    There is also the process of receiving and registering of cards, but there the quality of texts and images varies a lot. It is better not to set your hopes too high 🙂

    • Thank you for your comment, Carljene.

      My favorite part is when you click “Send a postcard” and I also like to register postcards to write something nice to the person or just answer the questions they asked on the postcard.

      I try to answer the person as much as possible.

      But there have been a few occasions when I’ve received an almost blank postcard and the person just wrote – Happy postcrossing and that’s it. I think that’s humiliating.
      Your favorite hobby must be given maximum time and attention, especially so many postcrossers have children who also read postcards.

  2. Excellent article. It is very detailed and the truth is that I have been very attentive to the usefulness and concept of the use of a postcrossing. He has clarified to some extent the doubts or questions I had on this subject. It is extremely interesting to have been able to Lear each of the paragraphs of this article. He has dyed good grammar. Good use of connectors and transmit the message in an appropriate and transparent form and mode. Outside linguistics, I really repeat again. It has been a very clarifying article on several aspects and I think it can help readers a lot as it helped me. Greetings.
