Variable Data Printing

Variable information can be printed on or incorporated within the printing of letters, brochures, etc. at the additional cost of setting up the program. All that is required is an Excel-type spreadsheet of the data and instructions about where and how to display the varying information on each document produced, functioning similarly to, but more robustly than, the Word Mail Merge function.

Envelopes can be addressed, letters can be individualized including addresses and salutations, varying blocks of information and text can vary from letter to letter. Pictures and colors can change variably from piece to piece, based on specific information in the data file.

We recommend that you call the Print Lab to discuss your plans and deadlines. Output-ready files can be emailed with all the necessary instructions and information to SDSU Print Lab, or we can provide variable data design for your purposes.
