Setting up Custom Banner Page

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

what i'm wanting to do is create a custom banner sheet for our iGen's which will work in this flow, currently we are using a CSV to pull jobs in from a location (this pulls in a 1up file) from there goes through our colour management queue and then gets 'routed' to the correct imposition before getting sent to print

 

on our custom banner page we are wanting to put information from the CSV containing :JOB ID, Laminition type ,Jobs per order and dispatch date onto each job prior to getting imposed.

 

what is the best way to build it in to our existing work flow?

If you look at the EasyStart workflows there's a workflow that does exactly what you want. I would suggest taking a look at that workflow as a starting point.

 

In general you build the workflow in the following manner:

  1. Add a blank page to the start of the document (after everything else has been done to the document)
  2. Add text and images to the blank pages using the watermark component. Add barcodes using the barcode component.
    1. You can see the available variables by looking at the Appendix in the Help
    2. Map custom MAX fields in the MAX Setup tab in the hot folder. You can then use the information in the manifest as $FF<field name$ variables in the watermark and barcode components
  3. Ensure the Printer Destination is configured with the expected number of Leading Banner pages so the PDF pages are handles as job sheets by the DFE
    1. Note - The Fiert only supports a single job sheet.

Hi,

 

Worked I’ve done this via

 

'new insert' - which is set to insert job document (being single or double sided)

'add water mark' - which puts all the information on page 1 of the PDF

Impose - imposes it on up to an SRA3

Route  - to route single or double sided jobs 

            - Single sided pages go straight though as the first page is the custom banner page

            - Double sided pages gets page 2 deleted (which is a duplicate of the second page)

 

Doing it that way just keeps the print routing tidy only having to apply 1 banner page

This is the Banner page built into the workflow( I know I could have a route type between stickers and all other jobs)  - with new Print Banner to have only 1 leading page
