K1Y Sweep Certificate

Postby K4VD » Wed Jan 24, 2007 8:32 pm

Here is my first shot at a sweep certificate. I haven't found a printer yet so there may be significant changes. If you have any suggestions, please post them here. I could use some help with wording. Should the whole thing be Olde Englilsh or just parts?

Ideas?

I hope the gap on the left and right size can be used for the KH6 and KL7 endorsements. I'm trying to find a gold foil of Hawaii and Alaska.

Here's my second try. I changed fonts a little and added dates. I haven't figured a good way (or have a good picture) of a straight key to add. Does anyone have a good graphic - maybe 300 dpi?

Hello dear OM Kev:

A PC with good printer and nice paper will solve your problem of the printer.

It´s easy to introduce modification, pictures, logos, signatures, etc., and must be cheaper.

The GACW do it in this way using Power Point software.
Muchos saludos

Good morning Alberto:

I think I'll buy a small pack of certificate paper and give it a try. I could probably add the KL7 and KH6 endorsements without using a rubber stamp if I can find a good color printer.

Thanks for the hint.

Two more drafts for your approval. Pick one (or two if N1RX doesn't mind trying both) and I'll send it out for test printing.

I think I like the SKCC key a little more than the SKCC logo but I'm not sure what it would look like in print. It's not becoming too busy, is it?

They both look nice Kevin. But I think I agree with you on the Key background- That is light enough to no be overpowering. I would be willing to try printing both.

Great work!

The files are on their way to you Bruce. I used your QRZ.com address. Hope that's OK. The files are 2 MB zipped. Each is a 300 dpi tiff file. Let me know if/when you get them OK.

Samples printed and on the way.

Postby N1RX » Mon Jan 29, 2007 8:53 pm

I have printed a copy of each of the two certificates styles, and mailed them to Kevin today for review. They are printed on Southworth 32lb, watermarked ivory colored granite paper. They were printed with a 6 color HP inkjet system. I think they look great. My personal preference is the one with the SKCC key background.

Kevin should receive them within a few days, and let us know what he thinks. I would be willing to do another trial printing if the feeling is that any tweaking is needed.

Looking forward to it Bruce. I think we will have under 100 certificate winners. If I created the file for each, would you be able to print that many?

I have some funds to whelp with the costs. I would send you the batch of SASEs for them.

Yes, I can print that many. Not a problem. We may have to make arrangements other than email for getting me all the files. Maybe you could just burn a CD and send it along with the SASEs for the certs. Of course, double check callsign and name spelling before burning.

I picked up a pack of 250 sheets of this nice heavy paper. Ink is not a problem. If you try to reimburse me, I will just send the check back. We'll consider this my donation to the effort this year.

:wink: Of course, next year, we'll have all the certs for K2Y with endorsements for Puerto Rico (last count 3 members) Virgin Islands, Guam.....

I can burn CDs or DVDs. A perfect solution. I also have an FTP server for the inevitable stragglers.

Thanks for the help. This is a huge burden you've taken from me.
