Here's a few tips that will help you make a great QSL Card:

  • Supplied graphics should be 300DPI and saved as an JPEG, EPS or TIFF files. We can accept almost any format, though.

  • When using your digital camera, always shoot your images at the highest resolution the camera is capable of shooting.

  • Logos / photos on the Internet are 72dpi and generally too low resolution for print reproduction. They are meant for screen resolution and will reproduce poorly when printed. Try to get the logo from the organization. Many times they are on their website or you can email the webmaster and request a hi res version.

  • PHOTOGRAPHS - If you have photographs please send them to me so I can scan them for you on my professional scanner giving you the best quality reproduction possible. (No add'l charge !!) Most desktop scanners reproduce images for webpages and home printing just fine, but very poorly for high end printing.

  • FONTS - Download a pdf of fonts you can use to design your QSL card.

  • Rough layouts and sketches are always welcome in MS Word, Publisher, or PDF's. Final production of your card is produced in Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop.
