I have been sucked in by my tablet. So many great apps and free too. And I can curl up in a comfortable sofa and draw away. Of course I also use the computer/tablet to process photos or scanned hand made drawings but also I use them as sketch books, painting and drawing directly on the screen. I am curious to know if anybody else does this.

Here is a quick sketch done in Corel Painter Mobile to illustrate my question.

Most of my Artistamps are rendered on the computer and then printed via the attached printer.  It's the Rosback perforator that brings my actual hands into play.

 i think one finds one's way of working by mixing programs, there is so much about that one cannot hope to master all of them or even one completely. Photoshop still  has some mysteries for me, and I got an old version I hate to upgrade; it takes a long time to learn the new stuff. And also as soon as I get on top of a technique I switch to something else. Making envelopes is what I am doing now. Lots of origami envelopes around more or less complicated, but great fun. So I suppose I do print envelopes, only that they are the whole work.

I use an HP Envy desktop and HP Envy printer. For graphics/art I used Picture It, Corel Draw, Adobe something-or-other, and some other thing which I can't recall the name of right now. I did design work of different kinds; brochures, newsletters, pamphlets, posters, logos. Also screen printing art for garments. And a LOOOOng project of designing paper crafts for children, about 1 per week for a year and a half or something. Most things required working in layers, and a few other things, but mostly pretty simple stuff. The work I was doing just didn't require more than that. 

To print labels and things, Avery paper products have a sheet in each pack (of labels, cards, etc.) with explanation and directions for simple lineup.  You probably need some kind of graphics program or publishing software to do it. I just used Picture It Platinum (which i don't really recommend -- too many glitches).

After getting my HP a year ago, I haven't used any of that. I'm doing different things now. But I enjoy following the conversations here on Pixel Post.  --Linda
