CI HUB Tutorials by Christian Denzler

Creating semi-automated print products with the CI HUB Connector and Adobe Data Merge

In this tutorial, we will demonstrate how you can easily create semi-automated print products using the CI HUB Connector, a cloud storage of your choice, and the data merge function of Adobe InDesign. We will begin by creating a simple business card, then progress to a more complex brochure with individual product cards using the data merge. By the end of the video tutorial, you will have gained key insights into the effective use of this function. The example templates shown are provided by CI HUB free of charge, so that you can recreate and practice the entire exercise.
