I just tried to print a wrapper to send a book and got the message that printable postage was not available for that address. Its an address in Alaska. I've mailed to Alaska before and was able to print postage with DC here.

Is there something really obvious that I'm overlooking? LOL

This usually means that Endicia is temporarily down. Try again in 30 minutes. If it's still not working, use the Contact Us link in the lower right corner to send in a feedback message asking them to check into it.

From the Help Center document "FAQs About Printable Postage":

I am getting the message "electronic postage cannot be used for this address".  What does this mean?

  • This message "electronic postage is currently not available for this address" is an error message from endicia.com, our online postage provider, and often it just goes away if the sender tries again to print after a few minutes.  
  • If the address is not validated by USPS,  you will also see the above message.  In the case of an invalid address, the requestor can go to this site  to try to find the "validated" form of his or her address.  Printed postage can't be used to send a package to an address that has not been validated by USPS.
