Use More Complex XMPie with Advanced VDP (VIX)
When your personalized print piece requires business logic during the data merge process, XMPie® QlingoR® scripting provides the solution. NowPrint gives you an option that fully supports the XMPie® composition engine platform.
Key VIX Advantages:
Design Powerful, Targeted Documents
Leverage InDesign with the XMPie® uDirect™ plug-in to create powerful 1:1 documents in the InDesign® application designers already use.
Authorize Unlimited Users
You get an Unlimited Direct Designer™ license to distribute template design tools to anyone in the organization for creating high-end XMPie campaign templates.
This solution includes the easy-to-use uDirect™ Standard desktop package that lets you merge mass-personalization records to create variable-data print documents.
Write Custom Scripts
Use Qlingo to write scripts for adding intelligence to VDP applications, including scripts to:
Dynamically Adjust the Content
- manipulate the product layout based on data entered by the user
- enforce branding rules on user-entered data
- apply style variables to alter fonts, colors, sizes, etc. to personalized product based on user input
Size, position, reflow and other effects can be adjusted on the fly based on input.
Tap into InDesign® Capabilities
Drop shadows, content applied to curves and other design features are available when using the InDesign-based XMPie tools.
Host Existing XMPie Templates
Organizations that are already using XMPie can continue to use existing templates, but now users will have the additional option of web-to-print commerce.
Create Multi-Page Documents
The classic XMPie solution allows up to 8-pages in the InDesign® template. If your template requires additional pages, we can work with you on a NowPrint contract.
Simplify Font Usage
XMPie has superb font management as it processes fonts from the uploaded campaign package.
Two set-up steps are eliminated because the admin uploads a campaign package to NowPrint that contains the InDesign template file, fonts, data file and supporting images.
Improve Admin Efficiency with a User-Friendly Product Image
NowPrint uses the designer’s specified XMPie record for the static catalog product image.
Control Print Production
Limited merging will occur with mass personalization items for print PDF, so we recommend merging in the desktop application to control batches.
