    OK, ladies and gents, I am looking for a good place to get some custom QSL cards printed. I have a few ideas on how I want them to look, and I just need some help to point me in the right direction. I dont really want to spend a fortune on these cards. Someone surely has to know some place to get them done.
    ThanksWA4GMD

    www.gotprint.com is the least expensive single or two-sided, color card printers I have found. I bought 500 single sided cards like what you see on my Zed profile for around $40 shipped to my door. The last box of two sided cards was logically same price for 250. I used their online design tool.

    Thank you, for the information, I am going to get on there and check it out! Trying to remember where AET "A"school was, Tennessee? I served from 1992-1996, on the USS Mcklusky FFG-41, out of Yokosuka, Japan, OS2. Thanks for the information, on the QSL Cards, and thanks for serving in the Worlds Finest Navy!

    The AE/AT schools had just transferred from Millington, TN to Pensacola, FL when I went through. We had some carry over students that made the move and finished up but I was in the first wave of students that went 100% through Pensacola.

    Just make sure when you go through the design tool you pick the correct postcard size for a QSL card (5.5" x 3.5") and single or two sided. Once you pick how many sides in a design you cannot change it and have to start over. For the QSO info on the back I just made my own.

    I was printing my own at home, which isn't really all that difficult to do, but can be time consuming. Finally I decided to have a batch printed up by someone else, and I used KB3IFH QSL Card service. Lots of templates to work with, and you can send in your own custom artwork or picture to use on the card. A proof is sent to you for final approval before printing begins. Costs are very reasonable; I got 250 cards for about $80. The website is:
