PrintShop Mail Suite by Objectif Lune
Do your customers need better results with their targeted marketing campaigns? Create individualized pieces easily with this desktop variable data printing application.
With PrintShop Mail’s user-friendly tools, you create one layout for all recipients; then, you can drag-and-drop in fields from a data source (such as an Excel spreadsheet) and easily set rules to allow you to skip pages, change the text, change images on the fly, and more. The result – each new print is unique and tailored to the recipient. Efficient technology keeps your computer from being tied up while the final job is sent to your printer.
The PrintShop Mail Web option permits implementation of a web-based central production server, so clients located anywhere may send in their jobs to you for printing and finishing.
