Postcrossing – a project that unites people from around the world
FindYourStampsValue.com is glad to inform that Russian Post has released a special stamp from the series "Postcrossing". The stamp was issued and put into circulation on the 27th of January.
Postcrossing is an online project that allows its members to send and receive postcards from all over the world. The project's tag line is "send a postcard and receive a postcard back from a random person somewhere in the world!" Its members, also known as postcrossers, send postcards to other members and receive postcards back from other random postcrossers. Where the postcards come from is always a surprise.
Postcrossing is the union of the words "postcard" and "crossing" and its origin "is loosely-based on the Bookcrossing site". Exchanges between the same two members only occur once; although direct swaps between members happen, they are not part of the official happenings on the site.
The project is completely free and anyone with an address can create an account. However, the postcards themselves and postage fees to mail them are the responsibility of each user.
