Question Making QSL Cards?


Anyone know what program is best to compose QSL cards?

The need has arisen, so I need to get on that horse and ride.

Can you use Windows Paint?

Or - what would you recommended?

anything graphics related i always resort to Adobe Photoshop, but unless you're in the business and can write it off it's a bit of an (okay, massive) investment
save the template as a .psd and you can change whatever layers you like whenever you like

Is there any particular place to get them done for freeband type QSL cards? Most of the online places are pretty much geared up for Hams only. I am looking to make both types of QSL cards - Ham and freeband.

Almost all, if not all QSL printers will have no problem printing a CB/Freeband QSL card.

I like the first card you did better. It would be great if the info for the contact was on the back and just you Call, addy and email etc. on the front.

What program are you using for this?
