Local print shop Alaska Litho has created and launched a new mobile app designed to bring together print and digital media. “Postcards from Alaska,” an original app created by Alaska Litho’s Media Services department, allows mobile users to take or access a photo on their iPhone and turn it into a print postcard, complete with custom photo caption and the recipient’s address. Professional photos are also available for download through the app.
The color postcards are 4x6 inches, and printed on partially-recycled paper. Prices start at $1.49 including printing and shipping; images from the artist gallery are an additional 50 cents.
The iPhone app is free to install and available at appstore.com/postcardsfromalaska. Updates about the Android app release for phones, tablets, and cameras can be found at postcardsfromalaska.com and facebook.com/PostcardsFromAlaska.
Alaska Litho is an employee-owned print shop that opened in 1948.
