THE CHALLENGE

Ter Steege's marketing department wanted to automate the preparation of sales brochures and price lists as far as possible on the basis of Adobe InDesign. Ter Steege has an internal design studio for designing its communication expressions.  

THE WORKOUT

Graphit has EasyCatalog the automatic layout plug-in for Adobe InDesign set up for automatic pagination of brochures and price lists. Prior to setting up the automation, the process was outlined in a blueprint in workshops together with marketing and design.
Workshops
  • What information had to be collected in Excel to be able to position products and product families on the page.
  • How should the data source be set up in EasyCatalog.
  • Which tagging is required in Adobe InDesign and which business rules do you want to apply in the automatic layout.
What has it delivered?
An automated layout process of brochures and price lists, which speeds up the layout process enormously. Corrections can be made automatically in the layout from Excel. Layout adjustments can be made in InDesign up to the last moment.
