An Alaskan Adventure: 2014 Summer Travel Stories Are in the Mail with Mobile Photos Turned into Postcards from Alaska

Share Article

Visitors to Alaska this summer will get a rare treat when they discover an Alaskan-made app that turns their mobile photos into lasting memories.

With the support of an improving national economy, more visitors are exploring the wonders of Alaska this year than any year since 2008. One locally-made travel app offers to help those visitors share their adventures from anywhere via mobile phone. And it’s not just standard social sharing, Postcards From Alaska lets visitors print and mail their own photographs and stories as postcards through the postal mail for a truly unique travel gift.

Made in Alaska, the app Postcards From Alaska makes mailing a print postcard as easy as sending a text message. The app accesses photos from the device’s photo gallery or lets the user snap a new photo for the front of the postcard. It also comes stocked with a professional photo gallery of Alaskan images, by Alaskan photographers, for more traditional postcards. A personalized message, custom photo caption, and the recipient’s address fill out the back of the postcard.

Postcards From Alaska is free to install and available at for iPhones and iPads.

Postcards created through the app are 4x6 inches, printed full-color on partially-recycled paper. Photo postcards start at $1.49 including printing and postage. Images from the Alaska Gallery are an additional 50 cents and support Alaskan photographers. More information is available at
