Another “retro” QSL design

Based on some input from comments here, and from e-mails, here’s a more refined retro QSL design.

Also, as I mentioned in a comment to my previous post, I might have a way to actually print them authentically, too. Here in Ann Arbor. We have a group called BoundEdition, which is a “membership-based community studio for book arts, letterpress, and related trades.” Heck, maybe I could even come up with a few designs and offer to print up small batches for other hams.

Also – Gary WD4NKA commented too. He runs his own letterpress business, and his work looks great. I take the easy way out and print my cards at Fedex Kinkos. That way, I can print small quantities as I use them, and am not stuck with a large quantity of cards if I wish to change anything on them.

    73 and good luck with that card!
