I have 10 different designs of ID badges that I need to print on a regular bases. How I have it set up right now is that the customer enters their information on my website. I then store that information on a database and convert it into and XML file. Each XML file has the data for 15 id badges plus an XML field that specifies which design to apply to that specific ID badge.
Ideally, what I would like to happen is that I can load the XML file into an InDesign template that allows me to print 15 different id badges on a single page. And that each ID badge on the page will have its own design, based on the design type specified in the XML field. Is this possible in InDesign?
Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Hmm. Sounds interesting. So I went on a little Google search. Closest I could find is:
Never tried doing such a thing though.
Mike, that looks like extacly what I needed. I will look deeper into it. Thank you so much for your help and effort.
You are most welcome.
I am intrigued about the process enough that I am going to give it a whirl myself in the near future. I wish you the best of luck doing this...and please feel free to update the thread as I believe that others could also gain from your experience. I'll do the same.
Take care, Mike
