W4MPY, "The QSL Man" is a popular source:

http://www.qslman.com/cardthum.htm

Also check the classified ads in the back of CQ and QST magazines as many of the QSL printers who advertise there will send you a pack of sample cards for postage or a very small fee.

Doug, I will buy you a new keyboard whose capital letters work.  Your posts are hard to read without it.



There is an Italian and Bulgarian(I think) that has great service and prices.

hi Douglas,

you can make your own cards, add photos if you like
then have them printed by the online photo service
at walmart 9 cents each 4x6" color or other photo
processors.

I'm going to do this instead. I used to take a CD/RW in with my QSL card on it and print at the do it yourself kiosk at .28 each, no more. Thanks for the idea. I only need a few a year so this works perfect for me. One problem, the 4x6 is a little big for QSL cards, I add a half inch of matting around the edge and cut the card out of the middle with a personal size paper cutter.

Also, a QSL card done on glossy photo paper is a class act that almost guarantees it a keeper by the recipient.

Vistaprint.com - they offer full color postcards for cheap. I just got 100 for free, just pay shipping of about $10. They have lots of in-stock designs, you can customize easily and can't beat the price and quick delivery.

GOOGLE is your friend....

Goole QSL Cards and view the samples.  

Just keep in mind that IF you find a QSL card model that strikes you with the "WOW" effect then that is the one for you.  As long as the price is 'Reasonable' for the product dont worry about price.  The cost of QSL Cards is petty cash to what you will end up spending.

Just keep in mind that should you be looking to change call signs as you advance up the license food chain you might want to just, for now, pick the cheapest you can find.

You might also check out E-qsl as a temp QSL alternative.
