PrintShop Mail

Personalised communication works. It's as simple as that.

One-to-one marketing has been proven to make readers respond to messages faster and more often, and in general, improve results. The recent challenge has been to find a software package that lets your business reap the advantages of variable data without sacrificing design freedom, database accuracy, or speed.

That's where PrintShop Mail comes in. PrintShop Mail is a professional software product that can process variable data quickly, easily and efficiently

PrintShop Mail keeps the fixed portion of the document and the variable data separate. When processing a PrintShop Mail job, the layout is sent and RIPped only once; variables are then exchanged at high speed. This technology enables the generation of documents at nearly maximum printing speed on Xerox PostScript enabled printers such as the DocuTech 2000 Series and DocuColor printers.

Supports production of complex pages, forms and graphics through standard OpenVMS interfaces. Simplifies integration of Xerox printers into the OpenVMS/Alpha environment. Migrates mainframe applications to OpenVMS and/or DIGITAL UNIX. Removes the need for third-party interface connections. Support for Xerox printer features such as duplexing and finishing Allows the printing of a range of pages within a job. Supports Disk Interleaved Graphics for high printer throughput. Contains an API that allows third party transforms for PostScript and PCL.

Advanced printing options allow the creation of personalised sets that can be stapled or bound using multiple paper sources.
