What is artisJet VDP (Variable Data Printing) solution?
A solution empowered by artisJet printers and artisRIP V.9.1 software allowing a continuous production for variable data printing onto all the substrates in bigger quantity on demand.

In terms of production, it is about a direct printing technology on any materials including on demand printing, in which elements such as text, graphics, barcodes and images may be changed from one printed piece to the next, without stopping or slowing down the printing process and using information from a database of external file.

How artisJet direct to substrates printers work with the VDP?
Benefiting from the unique feature of direct printing on any substrates with embossed and glossy results in sharp color detailing, artisJet printers have been widely used for products with high additional value in the personalization industry.

Which are the steps we need to follow in order to realize the VDP direct printing?

Let’s take the variable data card printing as an example.

When we print the cards in the same background layout, but with different contents (e.g. business cards, credit cards), the data of the card such as names, photos or coding are different. If you want to complete the output printing of cards with different data by one pass instead of importing it every single time, we need to use the artisJet V.9.1 variable data printing software. This can be done in few simple steps.

A first step is creating an Excel file which will contain all the information required for the VDP cards.

Secondly, benefiting from the artisJet Software, a card template must be created. The card template is determined by each customer’s requirements in terms of size, contents, graphics and design. As for the style layout, the customer could design his own VDP card using the various tools in the artisJet V.9.1 software.

After the template was finished, the next step is to correlate the design with the variable data from the Excel file, software setups and proceed to the printing and other settings.

For detailed printing steps and software setups regarding Variable Data Printing, check artisJet’s VDP card printing solution on tutorial page.

With artisJet VDP printing you can get an attractive solution suitable for direct marketing and branding and a personalized option as well, which is coherent with your customer’s interests, increasing the responsiveness towards the business.
