Mail-merged party invitations with gLabels
Add an individual touch to invitations or cards to help your event start with a bang.
A grab bag of software can still be found in electronics stores alongside last season's tax return software. Illustrious products such as greeting card creators and the like accompany jaded graphic and video suites and font packages. Although you will find hardly any counterparts to these titles in the free software world, you do have some more intelligent alternatives.
When the task is creating invitations and place cards for an event, some Linux users might wish they had some of these Windows programs. They make life easy, with ready-made design templates into which you only have to enter names. With a little ingenuity, though, you can just as easily use gLabels .
First published more than 15 years ago and updated constantly, the first version of this program was intended for designing and printing labels and business cards like those available commercially. However, just as most people can manage to knock a nail into the wall with a pair of pliers, if need be, gLabels will let you create totally different and no less professional-looking printed materials. Although, gLabels is not a mature desktop publishing program like Scribus, the opportunities it offers are fine for the task at hand, and the learning curve is pleasantly flat.
