    Question Is InDesign enough for try out?

    I am planning to try out VDP mailer with Minolta printer.
    Is InDesign good enough to try? or Should we have InDesign server in order to run a test drive?
    Thanks

    Indesign is perfect!
    Using the data merge feature you can create complex layouts that pull pictures and text from multiple records. Personalized envelopes or just sequentially numbered tickets.
    It exports to a PDF, then you can print it to any printer. With CWS you can even specify record length when printing, allowing you to print multiple page VDP

    Sure I have InDesign server to try it out? or InDesign is still good enough?
    Thanks!

    Regular indesign is all you need unless your running a newspaper or developing a web to print solution. The server edition is meant to work behind the scenes for large applications like serving templates to an entire organisation. It's good for large scale VDP. Here is a tutorial you may find useful

    Sure you can try it out. Just make sure to always have a backup plan to turn to in case things don't go in the direction you want.

    some times it's very expensive way) We can use IDesign only at home. At work our owner can't spend money on adobe soft (

    Indesign is great, for text inside the database and pictures, but if you need to call info from an external text file, for example, a different paragraph for each record and it is on a .rtf file then ID won't work, I suggest you use printshop mail as it is a robust software specialised on that.
