Subject: Smart Forms Printing

We have a requirement to print common documents on plain paper in all of our
European sites. The documents will be despatch notes, shipping forms etc and
will probably be on A4 landscape. There will be a standard layout for each
form with fixed text, company logo etc which can be country specific.
Additionally there will the usual variable details for each delivery etc.
Barcodes will need to be printed somewhere on the document.

The ideal solution would be to have a different format stored with each
printer that is automatically generated depending on some control code. If
anyone has any solutions and or pitfalls please let us know.

There daily volume is expected to be high, so a robust and speedy process is

Please respond with details direct to
