Variable Data Tutorial
Variable data printing means you have the same basic design, but wish to add a unique element to each print, for example, an address or number. We offer this service for a setup fee of $25.
All we need is a formatted spreadsheet, the name of the font(s) you wish to use, as well as the text color and size! For available fonts, please see our font list here. If you would prefer to use your own fonts, we just ask that you include the font files you'd wish to use in your attachments. Please email this information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
See the following for an example of how to set up your spreadsheet:
Note: Variable data set up requests can delay your order turnaround by 1-3 business days. A guaranteed delivery date cannot be set until you have approved all design work.
What Can Variable Data Be Used For?
Our variable data printing setup allows you to print names, addresses, numbers, and more, on your designs. If you have any questions on whether or not your project would be a good fit for our variable data process, please feel free to reach out to one of our friendly and experienced customer service representatives at email@example.com.
You can provide us with the names and addresses of your guests, and with variable data setup, we can create a file with each guest's information set up and ready to print onto envelopes for easy mailing! View more about our Printed Envelopes.
Return Addresss Envelope Setup
Do you need a single file designed for a return address? Our designers can create this as well for a flat $10 design fee using your preferred font type.
If your business uses the same design for business cards, provide us with the design and contact information for each employee. With variable data setup, we can automatically create the individual business cards for your whole office!
Table Cards or Place Cards
Preparing for a wedding or other event and need place cards or table numbers for your guests? Our variable data setup works wonders for creating those cards quickly and easily. Create a spreadsheet with your guests’ names and table numbers, and provide us with the design that you want to use.
Postcard Invitations or Save the Dates
A growing trend for sending Save the Dates is using postcards! At CatPrint, we can print each guests' name and address on each postcard to save you lots of time. Just provide us with your design file and a spreadsheet with your guests' information. Are you looking for postcard designs? Be sure to check out our template gallery for postcard design options.
