our goal is have a tool developed which can create a print file (eg. high quality .pdf file) from an image 'source' file (eg. .ai (adobe illustrator) file, or other format) and a set of variable data.
The tool will take in a 'template' source image file (example input file : '[url removed, login to view]).
This template source image file will contain
- vector graphics
- multiple and different cutting lines (in different layers)
- variable data placeholders (text1, text2,text3) and a variable 'to be generated' QR codes
The variable data file (eg. textfile with ; separated values)
The print file will be a repetition of the template image file (x times horizontally and maximum y times). (Please find an example of the output in file '[url removed, login to view] )
Example : If a template file has the size 25cm width and 30cm height. Given that the printing target is a role of paper with width 150centimeters on 50meters, suppose we need the template to be repeated 60 times in the printfile.
The tool should put the template 6 (6x25cm=[url removed, login to view]) after each other horizontally and repeat this 10 times vertically filling the variable data where needed.
This is a high level description of what we need, further clarifications or details can be obtained.
Preferred development in php, but not mandatory.
Other suggestions to obtain the same goal can also be accepted.
