1600 + Labels - Each with Different Text!! How?

Post by stitch-up » Fri Dec 01, 2017 6:57 pm

So we just got a request to produce labels for a good customer of ours.

They sent me a spreadsheet of over 1600 labels they want printed and each one will have different text!!

Is there any quick way to produce these labels using Versaworks and importing the text required per label contained in the spreadsheet?

Labels will be approx 5" by 3".

Yes but you can only do 250 per job, just like with copies.

Open your VersaWorks help and search for Variable Data, it’s all there, explained. Works fine.

Well, I think I've managed to master the use of variable data, BUT!!!

If the data, in my case simple text, exceeds the width of the area created in the template, it truncates (cuts off) the part that won't fit! I know I can choose to automatically decrease the font size to fit but was hoping that it would word wrap to additional lines.

No matter what size I make the template placeholder, the text seems to try and fit on one line.

Any ideas?

Yes, the template does not have any hyphenation functions AFAIK.
