Hi Joe!

Interesting idea!

I think using something like
http://gitorious.org/rhk/scripts/blobs/master/nef_julkaisija.sh but
coupling it with KPA's 'open with external app' could be used at least to
generate the initial images with texts on them. Then some command line
magic needs to be added for the printing (see for example
