OK - so here's the new W2LJ QSL card. It's not as "classic" as my first choice; but I took the photo myself (no copyright problems that way) and ended up with a high enough resolution photo that worked for a card. Here's the front:
Of course, it's the K1 and the 2004 Christmas Key that I just got this past Christmas. I love that "Camel back" design! And this photo pretty much sums up my whole operating philosophy, which is QRP, CW and the outdoors in one photograph. Now, it's not to say that this is the only way I operate - far from it! But it is one of my favorite ways to get on the air.
Here's the back:
That's me on vacation up at Lake George last summer, doing exactly what I enjoy so much. I decided not to clutter up the card with a ton of logos or membership numbers. I am trying to keep the design as clean as possible.
I am so looking forward to getting these! I decided to go with UX5UO's "Luxury" series, which gives the front a glossy finish. I should have 1,000 of these in about a month. If the finished product comes out nearly as well as the proof has, I will be happy indeed.
