Canon USA has announced the application availability of Meadows Publishing Solutions’ DesignMerge Variable-Data Software, which is designed to help customers expand their design and printing capabilities. The addition of DesignMerge to Canon’s production workflow solutions provides Canon with the ability to offer an expanded range of Variable-Data Printing (VDP) solutions to help designers, marketers and printers create more personalized, targeted print communications. Helping to improve the effectiveness of direct-marketing campaigns, DesignMerge offers the ability to personalize virtually every aspect of a document – including graphics, articles and bar coding, to name a few. The variable-data printing and data-publishing software package works alongside Canon’s PRISMAprepare, and directly within the Adobe InDesign application. Meadows Publishing Solutions is located in Schaumberg, Illinois.
“The increase of personalization through variable-data printing is a growing requirement within the commercial and production print market, and DesignMerge helps customers meet these market needs due to its ability to help drive print volumes,” said Barb Pellow, Manager of NY-based marketing specialist Pellow and Partners. “Canon continuously showcases its commitment to its customers by offering them tools such as this to help them expand their printing capabilities and creativity.” The software is compatible with the Adobe InDesign application and must have a license to Adobe InDesign CS6 or higher in order to use any of the software products.
