Bottom Line up top:
I generally charge $175 inclusive for front side QSL art, logos, illustrations and fun cartoon portraits. Depending on work involved, it might be more, but that's very seldom the case and I'll honor my up front estimate. That's PayPal only, but you don't need an account, PayPal accepts major credit cards. And most important to know, printing is up to you. More about this below.
No obligation, no desposit wanted to be on my waiting list. When I can actually start your job, I'll send you a PayPal invoice for $50 up front. That paid, we'll go back and forth on email with mockups until we settle on a provisional design. When all is completed to your satisfaction, I'll send another PayPal invoice for the balance, typically $125. Along with a printer-ready high-resolution image file of your design via my file service Hightail.com, I'll send you a signed 8.5 x 11 photoprint of our collaboration postpaid in a nice, sturdy tube via USPS.
A note about printing. QSL printers are best set up to customize your card back info and report forms. My recommended printer is KB3IFH QSL Cards and I'm happy to forward a copy of your design file to Randy. He does great work at fair prices with outstanding customer service. Of course, you're welcome to use whomever you wish. I receive no benefit no matter who prints your cards. My designs have been successfully printed by QSL specialists worldwide.
Thanks for your interest. See what I might draw for you and drop me a line. Consultations always free.
I've created 149 custom QSL card designs working closely with high-profile and smooth everyday operators around the world.
International DXpeditions, amateur radio clubs, organizations and businesses are represented by my logo designs.

I also draw custom cartoon art for clubs, organizations and individuals celebrating achievements and special events – including birthdays and anniversaries, even informal wedding invitations! Most often these are fun portraits such as this from a series of eight awards commissioned by World Radiosport Team Championship recognizing key members of the WRTC 2014 support team.
