After receiving more and more interest in our images featured on postcards from family, friends, and a few strangers as well, we've decided to launch a Dark Sky Postcard Club!

After three previous successful Kickstarter projects - Dark Sky Tour (2012), Operation Milky Way (2013), and The Range of Light: Night & Day on the John Muir Trail (2015) - we are stocked with awesome images of nighttime landscapes, and want to eventually put most or all into postcard form.  Your pledge will help create the first year of the Dark Sky Postcard Club.

The postcard club is simple: You'll receive a postcard around the first of each month in 2016 featuring one of our Dark Sky images on the front, along with a caption, a list of the month's nighttime sky events, and a quote on the back.  The billing on Kickstarter isn't reoccurring, so you'll easily have the choice at the end of the year whether you'd like to continue with another year or not.

We go on a few adventures per year, and capture nighttime landscapes wherever we go, so new photos will be added throughout the year(s)! 

For just $20/year ($18 for early birds!) for a United States subscription or $29/year ($27 for early birds!) for an International subscription, we'll keep awesome images coming to your mailbox and inbox every month of the year.  See examples below or check out our website DarkSkyPhotography.com for more of our work.

Risks and challenges

There isn't much risk here. We already have enough content for years of postcards. If we meet our goal, the Dark Sky Postcard Club will be born!
