How are you celebrating World Postcard Day? Share your pictures and experiences

I pulled 4 official addresses, (2 USA, 2 Germany) wrote, decorated and mailed the cards along with one for my mom and a couple from tags.
Then shopped this afternoon at various shops for more cards, informing the vendors of World Postcard Day. Neither knew of it…but now they do!


Everybody is free to not mark postcards as liked or to send blank postcards, but why do people express that in their profilge? Why do they hurt others that way? I really do not understand that! And I am sorry that you made this experience!


I love this card so much! In fact…I love all of @geetikasinha7 's work and have been stalking her Etsy shop :yum:.

I am also excited to see the very cute stamp of a dear bingo friend @trickykid1 on your postcards :heart_eyes:. I love it!!


I have a bunch left if you want one! And that’s fun! I spent a good amount of time chatting with her too :grin:


Dat klopt (=so true)!


It says: “Real mail is so much nicer!”


I’d love one! Thank you so much Paige. I’ll message you. I’d love to send you a card in return. But I don’t have a meetup card. It’ll be a little something from your wall or profile…if that’s ok?! :heart:


Thank you Ralf! :heart:

Sent 14 cards today! \o/

Five to family, five to friends, and four official cards. It took me a couple days to prepare all of them, to be honest! And I still have WPD cards left over – but I’ll look into swapping those on the forum later with anyone who doesn’t receive the card but would like one. :smiley:


Sent 1 today.


What a wonderful World Postcard Day!! :mailbox_with_mail: Thank you Postcrossing for all the fun!

12 cards through Postcrossing and 3 forum swaps. A few more swaps will go out on Monday.

Lots of beautiful stamps

A variety of colorful cards

Travel safely, my friends!


I sent five cards today, all official, all to Germany. I hope they’ll be postmarked today as well, I made a little detour to the one mailbox at the post office where my hopes are highest for that to happen.

Otherwise, I could rely on USPS taking five/six days (card went out on Monday) to deliver a postcard to the East Coast, so one WPD postcard arrived in Pittsburgh today …


We had a lovely small meetup in Portland, Oregon today. One person sent their very first Postcrossing card from the meetup!
Sadly, we completely forgot to take a picture of all of us together.


Oh that’s really special and lovely!! :blush:

Your card is amazing, Gerda! :smiley::hedgehog::love_letter:

I celebrated today by sending 24 cards to 12 different countries. Four were official Postcrossing cards and the rest were swaps and surprises to family. I also ate some ravioli. :smile:

Happy World Postcard Day, everyone! :two_hearts:


Well I worked on WPD, but thankfully I work from home so was able to write cards in… let’s say “breaks” in case my bosses are watching.

Took a large bundle of cards to the box after work, mostly to friends and relatives but also some official Postcrossing cards (the ones that aren’t the WPD card are official, I had some profiles that felt like they wouldn’t enjoy the official card so I picked something else for them).

Now what to do with my left over cards!


In Chennai, India we also celebrate the WPD with the young college students. Most of them are new to postcrossing. We encourage them with WPD stickers. Dr.T.Jaisakthivel spoke on Round Robin, Mr. Vicknesh Spoke on Introduction to postcrossing and the senior postcrosser Mr.Swaminathan spoke on Importance of sustainability in postcrossing.


I celebrated World Postcard Day by sending WPD cards to the expired ones so that I can send some more when traveling cards are registered. I also took the time to send cards to friends, acquaintances and family members.

More importantly, I brought my two nieces and a nephew to the post office to send their first ever postcard and what a day it was for those children. Supposedly, select children from the island will join them, but due to inclement weather, I have to postpone it to a later date. Thankfully, the post office allows a few blank WPD postcards (with postage stamps already) stamped on October 1 so the children can still send them later.

Last Saturday, the children prepared thank you postcards and postcards for other children.


I forgot to add. We also made the “official food” - ravioli. :blush: I made the filling and cooked them, and my partner made the dough, sauce, and shaped them. He was very supportive of this special World Postcard Day! (They are vegan/plant-based :seedling: :v: and were amazingly delicious.)


They look amazing! I’ve never tried making my own, I absolutely should!
