Import text, picture, or article information from practically any data source, and merge that information directly into document layouts

DesignMerge® allows users to create customized 1:1 marketing documents by linking a QuarkXPress or InDesign layout document to a database file. Then, each copy of a printed document can be "personalized", changing items such as name, address, and even graphics. The entire process is database-driven, completely flexible, and very easy to use.

The target markets for DesignMerge® are companies involved in variable data printing, or database publishing, in general:

  • Corporate marketing departments: Easily customizes brochures, direct mail pieces, business cards, name badges, and more.

  • Product manufacturers: Quickly automate the process of laying out weekly coupon supplements and customizing and serializing offer stamps.

  • Event handlers: Perfectly personalize invitations, customize event programs, and serialize tickets.

  • Financial institutions: Effectively produce customized prospectus information, fund statements, and other highly personalized documents.

  • Quick printers and digital printers: Extend their market outreach to offer personalization and customization services to their customers.
