Not with Photoshop, but you can with an app like MS Word along with Avery Labels or similar.
Using Photoshop data driven graphics you can generates cards for each kid. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9Ms34nYRFI
Very easy to do that with Photoshop and my Photoshop script pasteimageroll. The script will tile image into a new document. In your case you would prepare one image the aspect ratio you want the tiles to be as a template for data driven graphics. Then create the kid cards. Then run my script set the DPI you want to print at and the paper width the you want to use and set the tile size and number of image copies you want in your case 1 then let the script run by clicking ok. The script will present you with an open dialog select all your kids card image. For example if you want 3" x 2" cards without boarder like you show set the script dialog like this: 12" wide roll paper 4 cards per row 500 cards would require around 20' of roll paper. You can create smaller document by selecting fewer images to print on sheet paper. On 13"x19" paper 36" images would fit. On 8.5" x 11" rotate tiles to 2"x3" that will handle 12 cards per sheet like your sample image.
The script is included in my Photo Collage Toolkit here is how the script works with examples http://www.mouseprints.net/old/dpr/PasteImageRoll.html
The following example was for 4" wide by 6" high tiles on 12" paper the rotate option has the script rotate images to the tile orientation for best fit.
Thanks a lot. I looked up some tutorials and using the template I made I could easily edit it into Word.
It works perfectly, thanks again for the information.
Thank you, I think this method is exactly what I was looking for. It lets me customize it far more than Word does, so I'll be using it.
Thanks a lot!
Wow JJ. I know I should have thought about Scripts, but I had no idea you could do stuff like that with them. I'm impressed.
I'm just a hacker a young good programmer can do a lot more.
JJMack, I wish I could match even 0.01% of your scripting prowess.
Your willingness to share your scripts is admirable and most enthusiastically appreciated.
