Free Vintage QSL Card Template For Photoshop

Free vintage QSL card template for Photoshop. I hope you like it as much as I do. It turned out really nice, just as I imagined it at first.

I recently received my amateur radio license ( 2022 ) and made my very first QSO’s. I got to the point when I also had to think about being respectful to the other people and confirm those QSO’s as well. I am old school, so at some point I may start sending QSL cards to all my contacts.

Out of respect for everyone, I use electronic confirmations as I know many use that for different awards. I will always keep my log updated and confirm QSO’s electronically. But I also wanted to keep the tradition alive and use printed QSL’s as well. Here is the design I made for myself and I will use it for a while now.


I don’t know if all people have Adobe Photoshop, but that is what I used for this template. On the bottom of the article you have an archived folder available to download for free. This free vintage QSL card template has the size of 4×6. I thought that maybe I am not the only one that likes a vintage QSL card design. All you have to do is to replace the photo, only that you will have to crop the photo to fit that particular place. Then you will find the text layers that you have to change to your personal details.

If you want the image to also have a vintage look, set the blending mode of the photo to “multiply” and set the opacity as you like. I think mine was somewhere around 85% – 90%. I know I’ve seen a QSL like this in some place long time ago. I really liked the design and wanted to replicate that as much as I could. I really like how it turned out. Now all I have to do is to make an order and have them printed for me.


Here you have the vintage QSL card template. If you have any issues and you are not used with Photoshop, leave a comment down below. I will try to help as much as possible.

I was asked in a few emails if I do QSL card design as a service. Unfortunately I do not have the time, but feel free to write me and if I have the free time I would be happy to help at no charge. One more note on the PSD file… if you don’t have the required fonts, take a note on what you need and download them for free from as that is where I also got them from. Just search for the name of the missing fonts from the PSD file. Or maybe you want to use other custom fonts if you wish.

    • Thanks so much Jim. I can’t remember where I’ve seen it in the past, but I loved it and wanted to replicate that. Is really nice indeed and is easy to be personalized.
