I create my images in Gimp with a ppi of 600, not changing it after the fact. Your right, after that fact resolution change would probably pixelate the image. Starting it out with a higher ppi seem to make the finished product much nicer.

In gimp, it shouldn't pixelate it supposing you are working from the original Gimp file and not a JPG, PNG, etc, it'll be able to rescale everything correctly. Except of course imported images. Those like upscaling DVDs to HDTV level, just fakes in extra pixels.

If you are using a raster based graphics program such as photoshop or gimp, an actual size file @ 300 ppi will be more than adequate for laser printing. When you save from the native format, i.e., .psd to another format, i.e., .tif, don't compress the file.

To honor our silly Sphynx cat this is what I've come up with so far. It's an actual photo or our cat Bela.
