QSL Design and Print is a popular Windows based program widely used for designing and printing QSL cards. Even though there are many other tools that can be used for creating and printing the QSL cards, this QSL Design and Print software gives you additional features that are normally not found with other tools. Not only that, when you are designing the cards, it offers you much greater control over the design aspects of the card. You can design the contents of the card in the way you want, and there is great flexibility in this regard. This feature is usually not found in other tools that restrict the design only to a few standard templates. However, with the help of this software, you can easily customize the contents of your cards and prepare a unique and attractive design for your QSL cards. Once you are done with the designing of the card, the next step is to use it for communication. This can be done in two ways, and you can choose any one depending on your requirement. The first option is to save the card image so that it can be displayed on your website. This is one of the easiest methods as you do not have to spend money on printing the cards and still the communication can be delivered. On the other hand, when you want a card to be printed, you can save the card image and forward it to a commercial QSL printer.
When you choose to design a new card, go to the file option and select New Card option. It will show many sizes, and if you are not sure about which size to select, you can go for the standard Bureau size and begin the design work. Go to the My Calls option and input right values. Here you can see the confirmation for 2 way QSO. If you need to change the size of the card, you can input the values in this window and again go to the file option to select a different size.
Depending on what size you prefer, you can select that one from the file option in the QSL Design and Print. This is widely used in shortwave broadcast, and it is issued to listeners to verify the reception of the signals and also to check how many people are using the signals at any time. When you plan to print your QSL cards, make sure to go for a commercial scale printer as it will help you to save a lot of money. If you are on a tight budget, avoid using multiple colours and stick to just plain text. There are some card designs that can include the logo and other images on the card. Even though it looks good, it will cost you more when compared to the traditional ones.
