I was looking for a new program to create labels and came across gLabels. You can find the website at:
Here is a description of the project from the website:
“gLabels is a program for creating labels and business cards for the GNOME desktop environment. It is designed to work with various laser/ink-jet peel-off label and business card sheets that you’ll find at most office supply stores. gLabels is free software and is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). “
This is an active program with the latest version 2.24 out in December 2008. Here is a simple label that you can create in seconds. You have all of the typical features of fonts, boxes, images and fill.
You can also create labels from a whole list of templates that are available.
When you want to modify a label of any sort you will have options in the right hand window for Test, Style, Size, Position and shadow. These are easy options to use and give you the features that you will want.
The program is easy to use and seemed to only have one issue in version 2.2.3 that you needed to create a box for the text so the font would print correctly. All in all it is well worth your time to take a look.
