Can anybody recommend a program for printing my own qsl cards?  I will be using Windows XP and an ink jet printer.  Thanks.

Ink jet's a pretty expensive way to go but if you must...

What are you using for logging software?  DXKeeper, one of the DXLab suite, has an excellent QSL printing facility.  It prints card and QSO information right from your log.  There is another module in the Suite, called Pathfinder, that will help you find QSL routes for people from a number of online databases.

Although I do most of my real-time logging with N1MM, I periodically export my stuff to ADIF files and pull it into DXKeeper, which is what I use for QSL management and award tracking.

I came across a site recently while looking for the same thing,
http://www.hamstuff.com/QslKitPage/qslkit.html
It is a simple kit of micro perf paper with 4 cards per page.  This is marketed toward inkjet printers.  They throw in a MS Publisher and Word format files along with some images.  The 100 Sheet order (400 cards)of 90# card stock is $13 plus $4.50 shipping.  At less than $20 shipped I plan on ordering one myself so I can do some custom cards.  
Hope this is useful,
Todd

Try QSL Maker by WB8RCR. (hfradio.org/wb8rcr/) It's a free program and works really well. I use it with an inkjet printer and 110# card stock. Lots of choices for color and text. The web site doesn't say it can be used with Windows 2000 or XP, but I have used it with XP with no problems. Do a Google search for hints on importing graphics for the background.

hi,

QSL Maker by WB8RCR is written in C++,
so it will work with windows xp and 2000, etc.

Nice program, easy to use and you can create
custom cards as needed.

WB8RCR makes the program available at no charge.

I use Irfan View to work with my pictures and add the wording to it that I want.

I use Wordpad to just make the printed QSL info for  the reverse of a postcard. I haven't found a need for any special software to make my cards.

Email me sirdrakejr at AOL dot com and I will send you a sample pic I made just the other night from a pic I took of Las Vegas Saturday evening.

LOGic has a native format for the W7NN card stock.  See http://www.hosenose.com/logic/infopak/infopak_page4.asp#report_writer

It doesn't specifically mention the W7NN stock, but it's there.  It's what I use.
