The Two Ways To Find A Penpal

I have been snail mailing for five years on and off and I still love it. There’s nothing more special than receiving a handwritten letter in the post.

So you want to get into snail mail? By how?

Finding a Penpal can be difficult at first but it’s a lot easier when you know where to look.


You know that annoying app that let’s you post photos, well, it’s a great way to find penpals too. You can simply search through the #PenpalsWanted hashtag and you’ll find plenty of people who are looking for a panpal.

You can choose whether you want someone in your country or someone who lives further away. The possibilities are endless.


Interpals has been helping people make new friends around the world since 1998! Sign up for free, create a profile, and search the profiles of others to find someone to write to. Messaging is safe due to their on-site inbox, meaning you don’t need to give out personal information until you are ready.

If you are willing to challenge yourself a little then InterPals is for you. It’s got a few creeps on there but you can find a fair few people who are just looking for snail mail exchange.

  1. The last time I have been snail mailing with a pen pal I was 14, so it was over 25 years ago. And as much as I love to receive a handwritten letter, I don’t think I would be a good pen pal, I can’t even remember to send out my Christmas Cards on time.

  2. Awesome post 🙂 When I first started snailmailing, I used to use a website called Penpal Net but I’m not sure it exists anymore. It had profiles on there and allowed people to email you if they wanted to be penpals. I’m still writing to penpals I met through there when I was around 14 years old. Nowadays, Instagram is definitely my preferred place to find penpals and postcard swap partners. Even though I suck at keeping up with letters as an adult XD – Sarah x
