How does variable data printing work?

At Printed Notepads, every variable data print run begins with a ‘static’ artwork design template and a set of unique data, including lines of text, images, and design elements that will be printed onto each product. Our advanced digital printing software allows us to print both the static artwork and variable data simultaneously onto each individual item.

By using our variable data printing services at Printed Notepads, you won’t have to manually create multiple variations of your artwork because it’s all done for you. This allows for a more streamlined and efficient printing process, resulting in high-quality and personalized products that are sure to make a lasting impression.

What do I need to set up a VDP print run?

At Printed Notepads, setting up your artwork for variable data printing is a simple and straightforward process. All you need to provide is a static artwork design file that includes all the design elements that will remain the same across every printed item, along with a spreadsheet document saved as a CSV file that lists all the unique data you want to print.

What if I want to print unique images on each item?

Printing variable images with Printed Notepads is a hassle-free process. All you need to do is add each image’s file name within your database and send us a folder file that includes all your image files, your static artwork file, and your database file.

If you have any trouble, our experts are always happy to help – just drop us a line.

How can I specify how VDP elements are arranged on my print design?

Ordering your custom printed products from Printed Notepads with variable data printing is easy. Simply leave a note with your order at the checkout or, if you’re using design software like InDesign, Photoshop, or Illustrator, you can add placeholder text or graphics on a separate layer to the rest of your design.

Once we receive your order, our team at Printed Notepads will work with you to create a digital proof of your design. This proof will show where the variable data printing (VDP) elements are placed and how they’ll look on your final printed product. If you need to make any adjustments to the design before going to print, simply let us know, and we’ll work with you to make any necessary changes.

If you are unsure about variable data or have any questions then call us on 023 8087 8037 or email us.
