Velocity is an easy-to-use but effective variable data document creation tool providing variable text, images, nearly fifty 1D and 2D barcodes and color swatches for both fill and stroke and supporting overprint and knockout. When outputting, you can choose to limit the number of records per PDF so that the RIP can start ripping while the variable data is still being generated, print only a range of records, or just static or variable elements. In addition, it also supports sheet and roll impositions with advanced options for the arrangement of records on the output.
