Indian stamp show presents ‘Postcrossing’ meet-up

A three-day exhibition hosted by India Post in the South Asian country this September concluded with a “Postcrossing” meeting.

Postcrossing is a global project allowing people to send and receive real postcards with other people around the world.

“The idea is simple,” reads the project’s website. “For each postcard you send, you will receive one back from a random ‘postcrosser’ from somewhere in the world.”

Of the more than 200 countries with at least one Postcrossing participant, Canada is ranked 15th with 10,586 participants and more than 866,000 postcards sent.


In India, about 50 people participated in this September’s meeting, which included an online video conference with another group in Beijing, China.

Postcards were mailed between the two groups following the meeting.

Altogether, more than 3,000 people were reported to have attended the exhibition, which featured 110 competitive entries.
