    Mayra (KG5ONN) made a number of contacts recently (WW Digi, TN QSO Party and Texas QSO Party) and so it was time for us to get some QSL cards printed. She wanted something cute and fun that matched her personality. We found this smiling Concha art and sent it over to UX5UO to see what he could do and this was the very nice result, ordered them this morning. We will see if the pandemic impacts the shipping too badly. She already has a couple of cards to respond to when they arrive.

    I generally don't care much for oversize cards but I just received this one which is pretty cool. Its a full 5x7 inches.

    Ok, this is what I am thinking as the 40's version complete. I left an area for a line or two to write notes to other Op. for CW rag chew or SSb rag chew contacts, 73 Rich

    Very nice.
    One nitpic though. Even though it boldly proclaims INDIANA at the top I would include the IN in the address. Many foreigners (and some locals) aren't all that familiar with the standard US addressing format.

    Thanks Bill for the comment. I struggled with that and suggestions are certainly solicited. I considered that since I am the only user of the cards and I am strictly a stateside Op. the recipient would know. I do agree these would likely not be for other work for any type of contacts for the reason you have pointed out or anything more that a rag-chew session. I could not get the Indiana in on the bottom and maintain the look with having to have the zip in there too. I still have some work to do on the back side, I'm not satisfied with it completely. Thanks! 73 Rich
