Going Postal

31st August 2008 by Denise

For those of you that don’t know, Postcrossing is an ongoing project that helps people to exchange postcards with other people all over the world. At the time of writing, 1,362,464 postcards have been sent to 189 different countries. In case you’re not sure – that’s a lot of postcards.

Iain, our ever-cheerful (suspiciously, cheerful, some might say) project manager has had an extra little spring in his step recently – and it turns out it’s not just the new coffee machine. He’s signed up to Postcrossing himself and has had whale of a time sending out postcards to different people across the globe.

Even better, he’s been receiving postcards in return. And when you think about it, what’s not to like? When I get home I get bills, scary letters in brown envelopes and junk mail on the doormat. He gets nice postcards from potential new friends.

Something else he’s also enjoying is getting the right postcard to match the recipients interest. Some people request ‘a photo of your local area’ or ‘send me something related to your hobby’ – a keen photographer this is music to his ears. He’s been making MOO Postcards with his own images, and is already thinking about photos for his next batch.

If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, check out Postcrossing too – make some MOO Postcards, and tell ‘em we sent you!
