Identification card layout

good day. i've seen a video in Youtube where they use Corel for layout in making multiple ID Cards. Can someone please help me and give me a step-by-step guide in doing it. 

thanks in advance.

More power.

  • You design one card, and in print preview you should use the Imposition tools to duplicate it as many time and position as you please.

    Here's a hi-resolution video for you.

    It's also possible to to merge photos onto ID cards as well, using monstermerge. It's a commercial macro that allows you to make catalogs, posters, anything where photos need to be positioned in a design relative to text from a database.

    note that in the poster below, some employees have different backgrounds. This can be defined in the database also.

    thanks a lot  Jeff,  can i also include the photos and scanned signature in the merge option of Excel?

    Hi Erwin,

    You can have as many images as you like per ID card (or product in a catalog). The photo and signature would be 2 images per card.

    Here is a test I made for you. I'll give you the template and database for this example if you move forward.
