Direct, from China... via slow boat, methinks...

Good thing I was home today to receive this... my order from QSLprinter.com came today via USPS and required a signature. 500 new QSL cards ready to send out! They weren't as vivid as I was hoping on the color and the paper stock isn't as stiff as I had hoped, but they still came out nicely, I think. This is my first attempt to have QSL cards printed, so I'll learn that next time I might bump up the contrast a bit and perhaps make the text stand out more, maybe with a drop shadow or embossed effect.  All in all, not bad for less than $50 for 500 QSL's!  The only other drawback was the amount of time it took to receive them. I ordered them over a month ago. This printer waits until they get a few orders in and then does them in a batch. This saves them money, which they pass down to the buyer.  They didn't print them for two weeks after I paid, but they shipped them the same day they printed them and it took about 18 days to arrive to my door.  In this internet age, where people want instant gratification, it is sometimes hard to come by the patience to wait for something worth waiting for.

Now it's time for me to make 500 contacts...
