RE: Help Needed
Possible solutions:

- make a composite image using Gimp
- include several copies of the image in document page prepared with you word processor
- use a print utility that will print several images on the same page (IIRC, on Windows the Image and Fax viewer can do this)

RE: Help Needed
Same suggestions, but instead of making X copies of the same image, use different images. You won't find a "mailing " capability in Gimp like you have on word processors. Or you import the image wirhout text in a word processor, and find a way to overlay it with variable text and use the mailing list functionality of the WP.

RE: Help Needed
Here's a way to "slice" the A4 into multiple sheets/invite papers in Gimp using the dragable guid lines(drag from the border of the canvas for them.:

I also found a python script that can edit multiple text layers at the same time:
Find & replace text
