How to use CorelDraw Print Merge

Do you create lots of nameplates, all with different information on them?  ...and are you wasting hours manually typing in all the info that your customer has already provided you? Learning how to use CorelDraw Print Merge can literally SAVE YOU HOURS !!

In this course you will learn: How to collect and organise your data for engraving/printing (list of names, serial numbers etc) How to access the Print Merge Wizard How to prevent long names or words running out of bounds How to correctly set up your print merge template and merge the data How to use the imposition tool  This video course will walk you step-by-step right from the beginning of creating our template all the way through to having Print Merge automatically create 100 nameplates all with different information on them.  You can even download both the CorelDraw template file and the list of 100 different names/job titles that we'll be using in the video so you can follow along and try it yourself - plus there are written instructions included as well!
