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

I have a Canon printer that has a setting for envelopes. But, with the fairy picture, I simply centered it on a 12 x 12 inch paper, and made the envelope myself.

I find how to  print things mostly by trial and error. with desktop publishing software( Serif Page Plus) but i have never printed envelopes. I did print tiny labels with my address with Word but it was a problem to get all aligned. so I had a stamp made.

Mail Art Martha.. thank you! I made it into an envelope. Digital art is my go-to favorite type of art!

Thanks Moan, for the explanation, I understsnd now how you work.

Also I see that the other group is more about sending any art, trad or digitsl by email and this about sending digital art by snail mail. It seems to me they are complementary. Which is great. I fit into both, hurray!

I like to create 4 by 6 inch postcards, then laminate them to go through the mail.

I also run Linux. I started using GIMP years ago. I've since learned Photoshop, but I still use GIMP when I'm home and on my own Linux box.
