    Since I'm new to the forums, I figured I should find a way to make a contribution. I've been a graphic designer for almost 20 years, and I figure there might be some folks out there that need QSL cards designed. I think I'll set a limit to 4 cards, so I have enough time to get to them all, but I wanted to see if it's something you guys are even interested in. Also, I don't know how to go about selecting who gets them. On one hand, I could just offer it to the first 4 people interested, but I was thinking it might be better to let the community decide who deserves/needs a card? I'm not sure, what do you guys think?

    Thank you for the idea Jhonnie,
    In my opinion it is very good if the priority of the choice is given to radio amateur friends who need it or are conveyed through the forum admin, and those who will choose who has the right to receive it, with measurable criteria of course, if not your opinion is also very good.
    I hope to help you

    see you, 73

    if they dont deign their own most hams seem to use standard designs. I thought about doing custom design as well but after talking to the local club, i determined that interest is nil.

    Why not make it available as .psd and people can edit the various layers as they see fit. Or a template that people can input a form and it chews out a vector graphic format and they can do with it as they like.

    I can't tell you how many cards I have received that were black with silver printing, just like my card. Just like my old man's card. I no longer use that one, but I'm still using the same card design that came after that.

    Because there are already plenty of templates out there. And not everyone has the knowledge or software to customize a template. I'd rather offer a personalized design that someone can be proud of and treasure, so that's my angle.
