Submission + - Holiday Card Hell

Ray writes: "Okay, it's that time again. I've got a zillion things to do, presents to wrap, cards to write (let alone send!) and it suddenly dawned on me that surely some Slashdotters out there have pretty slick systems set up to get cards out to people. I use KDE and Open Office as my main tools, and I'm also a photographer. I'd love a nice way to select a photo, personalize a card, pull out a name or two from my Kontact list, print the card on my color printer, have a matching envelope or label print out on my laser printer...and be done with it. I'm always getting my cards out in March or April if I get them out at all. I've played around with merging addresses into documents but it's frustratingly opaque. Are there any good Open Source applications out there that make the letter writing and letter mailing process less painful? Or is the Slashdot community still mainly writing the darn things by hand?"

Those who claim the dead never return to life haven't ever been around here at quitting time.
