I have been a ham for 22 years, although I was off the air for ten
years. I have been back on the long enough to want to start qsling
again.

I am using the Ham Radio Deluxe software. I am have aboout 250 QSOs
that I need to qsl. I am about to order some qsl cards, but I need
to know what specific support program to interface with, as well, as
how to interface HRD to that software that can print envelopes, and
print the qsl labels to affix to my cards.

How do you manage the data to tell which QSOs have been sent and
recieved in HRD and the supporting software?

If I could use a label to print to qsl information, I could affix the
label to the qsl card. Further more I could design the card for a
particular label to be affixed.

Please help me work through this issue.

I'm not an HRD user - didn't know they had logging included.  I use DX4WIN, a full-featured logging program, and print the reports directly on the back of the QSLs.  I used to use labels, but decided they are too expensive.  Many printers, such as Epson, can print directly on the cards as they do not reverse the paper path as HP printers do, so the cards are not being curled around a roller as they pring.  The Epson ink is water resistant, and can't be easily smeared.

I like my way better, shoe boxes with index card dividers for A-Z and 1-9. They're too inexpensive to print on my printer.

Like K8AC, I use DX4WIN as my logging program although I print labels for use on the cards.  I just bought a package of 750 labels at a cost of about $9.00.
I use these for addresses also and use HAM CALL to print address labels.

I would think that any good computer logging program would have to ability to flag the QSOs as having been sent cards.

I have not seen any logging program that would address envelopes for you.

My source for QSL cards is Wayne,W4MPY, The QSL Man  http://www.qslman.com
