Prepare your Excel or CSV file as follows: Remove any headers and prepare the data in sheet 1.
Each column should contain specific data, ie. all student names in one column.
Note that your Excel file can contain columns that will not be imported. You can add to your project only data from the columns you need.
In ICLICKNPRINT, your project should contain all the text boxes that will receive the Excel or CSV data.
RECOMMENDED: Enter in each text box the longest text from each Excel file column.
This will help you in two ways:
1. It will offer guidance as to what data to drag and drop in each text box.
2. After the merge is done, the text box sizes remain unchanged. This saves you some work since you do not have to resize the text boxes to fit the text.
Arrange your text boxes and images in the exact positions you want them to be on the printed product.
Alternately, name each textbox so you know what data to drag and drop there. ie Student Name, Achievement, etc.
Edit fonts, colors, font sizes, before merging the data. Otherwise, you will have to do the editing in each sheet, after merge. This would be a huge waste of your time.
Use Merge to import data only when the project you are customizing looks exactly like what you want to print.
Merge will add extra pages in your project.
You only need to customize one page. All the rest will look the same bur will contain the data imported.

Merge is sensitive to large amounts of data so make sure you resize your images before uploading them and enter no more than 25 contacts per certificate or letterhead project and 90 contacts per label or cards projects at one time. the larger the amount of data and number of pages in a project the longer the time to save and download PDF file.
We did not impose any restrictions on the amount of pages.
However, read under merge the recommended number of pages per type of product and try to stay within this recommended number per project. you can create multiple projects to achieve your goal.
