    Did this with Publisher. Wanted something simple and I think it turned out well.

    I put my address on the back and I can print it directly on pre-perforated post card pages.

    Shouldn't it say CONFIRMING QSO WITH ?

    Excellent catch! A typo like that - that's kind of the whole purpose for the card! Good thing I'm still "proofing" it.

    :p

    Oh, a couple other things if you don't mind me being picky.
    1. The zones. That should be CQ 4 instead of CW 4.
    2. The box containing CONFIRMING QSO WITH and RADIO...aren't they redundant?
    3. F'were me I'd shrink the vertical size of the report box grid. Its taking up half the card's face.
    4. I don't know the size of the perforated post cards but it doesn't appear the image has the correct 3.5 x 5.5" aspect ratio.

    If there's anything else I'll let you know :rolleyes:

    Good stuff.

    i was more focusing on the imagery and fit of the tables, now I'll have to go into text and size.

    :D

    I was interested in doing a QSL card that says something about me. I believe I succeeded...

    Of course, I'm old-school, patriotic and proud. So the card fits me. :)

    I think it's a good-looking card despite the fact that i think patriotic shows are pretty ostentatious. it's nice and clean, and easily legible (in an era when people seem to prefer graphic design that trends away from this).

    what do the chinese characters at the top right tell us?
