Requirements

  • Scribus (free here)
  • OpenOffice (free here) or LibreOffice (free here)

What it does and how it works

The package includes an OpenOffice/LibreOffice spreadsheet, a Scribus script, and a couple text files necessary for it to work.  The spreadsheet lets you select which stamps you want to build boxes for:

pmgssapg_scribus10_calc_data

Then set the settings for the stamp boxes:

pmgssapg_scribus10_calc_settings
At the click of a button, the stamp data and settings are exported to a text file.  Then, in Scribus, when you execute the script, you get stamp boxes in one of several styles:

pmgssapg_scribus_mystic_style
pmgssapg_horiz_set2pmgssapg_scribus_lighthouse_stylepmgssapg_vert_set

Detailed instructions are contained within the manual found within the download.
