VDP software If you are a QuarkXPress user or Adobe InDesign user, and if you need to do variable-data printing, then DesignMerge is for you!

DesignMerge is a bundle of QuarkXPress™ XTensions™ or Adobe® InDesign® Plug-Ins that provide sophisticated features for variable-data-printing and database-publishing. To put it another way: DesignMerge makes it possible to design and produce variable-data documents from within Quark or InDesign.


Menu-driven, easy to use

Every aspect of the DesignMerge interface is menu-driven. To set up your document, use the DesignMerge floating palette to identify variable-text information or variable-picture information in your QuarkXPress/InDesign document. Then, you select the database file you wish to use and start the DesignMerge session.

After you've set up your document, DesignMerge quickly cycles through each record of the database, populates the variable fields in your document, and prints the merged results.

If you like, you can do a "preflight" to check for problems before printing.

You also have the option of saving the merged documents in a number of different file formats.

VDP software Variable text

DesignMerge supports the creation of variable text inside of any QuarkXPress or InDesign document. DesignMerge retains the styling of the text in the document as the variable data is merged. All of the available styling features are fully supported, including text on a curve, drop-caps, runarounds, kerning, and color specifications. Just select the text you want to personalize; then use the DesignMerge floating palette to establish the link to your data.

Variable graphics

For variable graphics, DesignMerge allows you to select from a set of pre-defined graphic-positioning options that control how the graphic is positioned when it is merged.

DesignMerge includes full support for multiple local and global search paths for graphics, so the variable images can reside anywhere on your system.

VDP software DesignMerge is available for both Macintosh computers and Windows computers. For details about operating-system requirements and hardware requirements, refer to the DesignMerge documentation. (You'll get the documentation if you click the "Try" tab above and download a demo version of DesignMerge.)
DesignMerge works from within Adobe InDesign or QuarkXPress. In other words, to use DesignMerge, Adobe InDesign or QuarkXPress must be installed on your computer. Here are the InDesign and Quark versions that are supported:
  • InDesign CS3, CS4, CS5, and CS5.5 (supported on both Macintosh and Windows)
  • Quark 6 (supported on Macintosh and Windows)
  • Quark 7, 8, and 9 (supported on Macintosh only)
VDP software You can download a free trial version of DesignMerge. You'll be able to install it and run it on your own computer. These buttons let you download both InDesign and Quark versions of DesignMerge.

VDP software Your data

DesignMerge works with delimited text files, which can be created using practically any database or spreadsheet application. (One popular delimited-text format is .csv.) Both ASCII and UTF-8 Unicode are supported.

You can also connect directly to your database via ODBC.
What are the advantages of using a plug-in or XTension for variable-data printing?

DesignMerge comes as a collection of InDesign plug-ins or Quark XTensions. There are several advantages to using plug-in technology for variable-data printing. The most important is that the software can utilize the two most popular document-composition engines in the world: QuarkXPress and Adobe InDesign. All of the composition features you have grown accustomed to as a Quark or InDesign user are fully supported by DesignMerge. Every aspect of the composition process, including kerning and letterspacing, hyphenation and justification, runarounds, multi-page composition, styling, tables, etc. are all available for you to use. You just take an existing document and use DesignMerge to "make it variable." Your variable output will look just like you clicked File > Print for each individual data record.

Another important advantage to a plug-in approach for variable-data printing is the ramp-up and production time. Because the user is allowed to remain in the QuarkXPress or InDesign application the entire time, little training is required. The user doesn't need to learn a brand-new page-layout tool. Rather, using the DesignMerge interface, the user can easily identify variable elements in an existing document, start the merge session, and produce variable-data output, all without leaving the QuarkXPress or InDesign environment. This also makes it easy to effect edits to the document, as the user can make them immediately — just like he or she is editing a "normal" QuarkXPress or InDesign document — because that is exactly what the user is doing!

VDP software Business logic

DesignMerge lets you use conditional processing (if-then-else statements) in your variable-data-printing jobs. This gives you the ability to control the content and styling of the data or layout, based upon the contents of one or more database fields.

Oversets

DesignMerge can detect and remedy overset text conditions, which are a common occurrence in variable-data-printing applications. DesignMerge utilizes user-defined parameters that make the text smaller until it just fits inside the area allocated for it.

The user specifies the attributes to be adjusted. The DesignMerge facility for handling oversets is unique in that the set of pre-defined parameters can actually mimic the copy-fitting style of the designer, thereby ensuring a result that is aesthetically pleasing.

mailmerge software variable data printing software Output formats

DesignMerge provides built-in support for all the most popular variable-data output formats, including PostScript, PPML, and Creo VPS. It also supports optional, specialty print drivers for systems such as Xerox VIPP, and legacy systems such as Xeikon Book Ticket format.

Multi-up layouts

DesignMerge supports the creation of multi-up layouts by utilizing a "sequencing" feature that is built into the product. This feature allows the user to lay out multiple representations of a document in a matrix of columns and rows. The user can create any number of "ups" in the document, using a simple point-and-click method to identify the ordering of the data on the page.

Whitespace management

DesignMerge can suppress unwanted whitespace in a situation where a data field is empty.

VDP software mailmerge software
The DirectSmile software lets you do "image personalization."

What is image personalization?

Image personalization is the ability to add variable text to images, dynamically. For example: you can write people's names in the sand, spell people's names with cookies or berries, and emboss people's names on poker chips. This allows for the design and production of outstanding direct-mail communications that capture the attention of recipients through a combination of individualization and emotion.

If you use Adobe InDesign to create your master document, you'll be able to take advantage of some extra features. For example, the formatting you create in InDesign will be carried over into the PDF file you create for your basic design, and you can use that same formatting in FusionPro VDP Creator for variable text. Note that you are NOT REQUIRED to use InDesign; it's optional.

VDP software FusionPro VDP Producer allows you to automate your production workflow for variable-data documents without doing any programming. Formerly known as FusionPro Direct, FusionPro VDP Producer is ideal for large or complex variable-data jobs.

You utilize FusionPro VDP Producer in conjunction with FusionPro VDP Creator. It works like this:
You use FusionPro VDP Creator's drag-and-drop system to create a template (layout) for your variable-data job; then you copy the template files to a hot folder on the server that's running FusionPro VDP Producer. Each time you need to use that template to create variable-data documents, just put a new data file into the hot folder, and FusionPro VDP Producer will compose the documents and create the output file in the format specified in the template.

FusionPro VDP Producer can automatically email production personnel when composition is complete and can also put the finished file into a RIP folder, giving you a completely automated, "hands-off" production workflow.

PrintShop Mail Design makes it easy to produce almost any kind of personalized or customized document: postcards, gift certificates, personalized brochures, collection letters, price tags, tickets, calendars — the possibilities are endless!



PDF workflow saves time

PrintShop Mail Design's support for PDF allows you to use virtually any application to create the basic design for your document. For example, you can use Adobe Illustrator or Adobe InDesign or QuarkXPress or even Microsoft Word.

PrintShop Mail Web is an extension to the PrintShop Mail Design module. PrintShop Mail Web supports multi-user printing from PrintShop Mail Design, and it also provides a Web interface for automating and managing document templates. In fact, PrintShop Mail Web is a full-featured Web-to-print system that allows real-time, 24/7 on-line modification, ordering and production of 1) promotional and personalized documents created with PrintShop Mail Design, 2) static PDF files. It can be used by your own employees, it can be used by your customers, or both.

You can set up multiple Web portals within the PrintShop Mail Web system, and each portal can have different branding (a different look and feel). For example, if your company is a printing company, and if some of your customers are banks, you could set up a Web portal for your own company (it would have your company's logo, colors, phone number, etc.), and you could also set up a different Web portal for each bank (with the bank's logo, colors, phone number, etc.). Each bank's employees could use that particular bank's portal to order business cards, letterhead, envelopes, etc. on line. There is no extra charge for setting up multiple Web portals.

PrintShop Mail Web is a self-hosted system. This means you install and run PrintShop Mail Web on your own server. PrintShop Mail Web is one of the most affordable self-hosted Web-to-print systems available.

PrintShop Mail Web is a great solution for organizations where multiple users need to create and/or manage document templates and produce documents based on those templates. It is ideal for a business that has remote workers or offices — typically retail outlets, franchises and dealerships.

The designer's perspective

The designer uses the PrintShop Mail Design software to create document templates for use with the PrintShop Mail Web system. (The PrintShop Mail Design software is included with the PrintShop Mail Mail Web software.)

Creating a template entails defining data sources and defining formatting and business logic for the variable text and variable graphics that will be used on the template. This is an easy process with PrintShop Mail Design's drag-and-drop system.

Once a template is finished, the designer uses PrintShop Mail Design to "publish it" to the PrintShop Mail Web system. The designer can then use PrintShop Mail Web to test the template. Once the designer has confirmed the template is working properly, the designer uses PrintShop Mail Web's administrative interface to makes the template available to PrintShop Mail Web users.

The integrator's perspective

PrintShop Mail Web can operate as a stand-alone, self-contained system. However, built into PrintShop Mail Web are integration features that allow a programmer to integrate PrintShop Mail Web with other processes, if needed.

A typical integration requirement is communication of order information from PrintShop Mail Web to an order-management system.

Another typical integration requirement is an underwater log-in system, which allows a program or Web site to provide a username and password to PrintShop Mail Web. In a scenario where a company running PrintShop Mail Web has a Web site or another system that requires a user to log in, this eliminates the need for a user to log in twice.

Once the document is ready, the user validates and preflights the print run and initiates the ordering process. With permissions and access rights that can be set per user, PrintShop Mail Web allows companies to adapt the verification process of submitted documents based on their business rules.
