I am currently trying to set up business cards with a QR Code on the back of each card. Therefore I have an excel spreadsheet, which contains all the data necessary for the business card like name, function, e-mail adress,... the data is then filled in automatically by using the standard function with tags for each column (e.g. table column name is filled in as <<name>> in the specific location on the business card and once executed it is matched with the data from the excel file).
Is there anything which could help me to automate the personalization of the QR Codes?
All the best
For free? Not at the moment. CC does have the ability to create QR codes but only one at a time. In CS6 (perhaps earlier versions?), regular poster/advanced scripter Jongware devised a script to prepare a QR code but again, could only do one at a time.
However, someone did build on Jongware's QR code to do this from an InDesign file that had the necessary information in tagged text boxes and would prepare QR codes accordingly. However, it would leave them in the InDesign file (e.g. not separate EPS/PDFs).
So, a long workaround would be:
It's a lot of work to generate multiple QR codes. A paid solution offered by either Meadows DPS or Woodwing (two companies I have no affiliation with whatsoever) or any other plug-in provider for that matter: http://www.adobe.com/products/indesign/indepth.displayTab3.html may be an alternative that is worth pursuing.
