LabelNation 1.170 Description:
LabelNation is a program for making labels. By "label", I mean address labels, business cards, or anything else involving regularly-arranged rectangles on a printer-ready sheet. You can even use it to make a calendar (that took some work, though). This project is open source software, licenced under the GNU General Public Licence (GPL). Here's how it works: you tell LabelNation what text you want on each label. You can specify plain lines of text, or even arbitrary PostScript code. You also tell it what kind of labels it should print for. LabelNation takes all this information and produces a PostScript file, which you then send to your PostScript printer (or through a filter such as GNU GhostScript). Of course, there must be a sheet of peel-off labels in the paper tray. Such sheets are widely available at office supply stores. Two companies that offer it are Avery Dennison and Maco. This is not a recommendation nor an endorsement; Avery and Maco are simply the names I've seen.
