KEY FEATURES Integration into printing workﬂows
One-to-one marketing – Personalised printing with clear and simple operation: Targets anyone without expert knowledge as it requires no special graphic design knowledge. With simple drag-and-drop of elements from the database into the layout, a connection from the database to the document is automatically created and offers instant preview and check features. – Barcode printing: PrintShop Mail has an extensive integrated barcode library, including QR codes, USPS, Datamatrix; Unicode and double-Byte characters are also supported. – Customer designs: Incorporating VDP assembly technology, PrintShop Mail Design removes the need to use plug-ins to graphic design tools. Users can simply take pre-designed PDF or EPS files and overlay variable data and images with easy drag-and-drop operation.
– Design features: Enables the use of any database and any design. Completely application-independent, PrintShop Mail allows the use of any existing design and database format, such as PDF, Word, EPS, JPG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, WMF, GIF. – Support of device-specific settings: These include dynamic tray pulling, (subset) finishing, scripting (i.e. for crash numbering), and dynamic imposition. – Fast print process: Ensuring considerably reduced network traffic, the variable parts of the print job are continuously transmitted to the printer after the static part of the job has been sent just once.
