Schaumburg, IL– September 23, 2014— Meadows Publishing Solutions and Kodak today announced that the Meadows DesignMerge Pro Variable Data Software has been tested and approved for use with the Kodak NexPress Digital Production Color Press.

DesignMerge is a professional Variable Data Printing (VDP) software package that works directly with Adobe InDesign. The software is ideal for data-driven VDP applications, from relatively simple, multi-up consecutive numbering and bar coding jobs, to sophisticated, personalized direct mail pieces.

"DesignMerge provides a straightforward, single-step capability to use the unique Kodak NexPress Fifth Imaging Station inks as variable data directly within the application. This opens up the power of the special Fifth Imaging Station inks for some very creative uses of variable data." said Len Christopher, EPS WW Product Manager."

Using DesignMerge, VDP jobs designed for the NexPress Fifth Imaging Station inks are very easy to implement. Ink colors such as Gold or Red Fluorescing can be used for specialty VDP applications, such as eye-catching personalized overlays, or hidden, variable security information

"The integration between Kodak NexPress press and DesignMerge is a natural fit.", said John Kriho, President of Meadows Publishing Solutions. "Working from within the Adobe InDesign application automatically provides DesignMerge with the features required to achieve such stunning and unique VDP output."

Meadows will be demonstrating the latest version of their DesignMerge Pro VDP software in booth #439, and Kodak will be demonstrating their Kodak NexPress press and several Fifth Imaging Station inks in booth #831, all at the upcoming Graph Expo 2014 show at McCormick Place in Chicago, from September 28 - October 1, 2014.
