After sending out another batch of QSL cards via the bureau earlier this week I started thinking seriously about ordering them and not printing and cutting them myself. I'm reasonably happy with my design at the moment. And I do like sending and receiving them, so I want more. There is one thing: I do hope to pass the Full license exam some day. This does mean I will get a different callsign (PD calls are reserved for novice, PA/PB/PC/PE/PF/PG/PH for full licensees) so cards I order now will become invalid at that time. So I was looking for a QSL printing service that could do not too many cards in black and white for a nice price. LZ3HI offers QSL printing for a reasonable price. And a good thing (for me) is that I can pay him via a bank transfer in Euro's which means there is no extra cost involved. I create my own card in \LaTeX and print it as postscript. I sent the postscript file as what I wanted and this turned out to work great. In postscript scalable fonts are used (except for the logo on the card) so at any resolution this will work out best.
