Just after CQWW CW 2017 I decided it is time for a new QSL Card for 2018, but it was not as easy than i thought!
I made a design, sent it to print and after the 5000 cards arrived I was not happy with the outcome. It has nothing to do with the print quality, it was great like all the other cards I have done with my faforite printer (WMD). The full glossy (UV-LACK) cards are so much cooler than normal glossy paper, so I decided to do it again. So glossy it is!
Also a chance to fix some small design errors from my side:
first print new design
First try New backside
Errors to avoid designing QSL Cards:
- I love shaddows, but on the first try the shaddow was to close to the DF7ZS print and therfore not clearly visibla as a shadow. It was mashed up with the font itself.
- Also the blue was so dark that it did not seperate well from the shadow.
- The free space to right just looked unfinished.
I also made a special event QSL Card for CQWW CW 2017.
This was just for fun and to post a link to my othe hobby: www.photo42.de
Besides LotW I still love real QSLs!
