No we treat them as two separate options.
Variable data is generally supplied in the form of an Excel spreadsheet, and is usually used for orders such as needing to print 500 different addresses on a single print run or requiring 1000 labels sequentially numbered with your company logo.
Multiple Designs are treated slightly differently, you may require 10 different designs printed within the same print run. You can split the quantities of the individual designs however you choose within the total order quantity. For example, if you upload 10 designs, you may require 100 printed of each design within your 1000 total quantity.
Please note, both variable data and multiple design options are only available when using the same label shape, size, printing process and material.
If you are unsure what the most cost effective option is for your particular order, then please get in touch and we’ll help you out.
