Project Description

We need a program that can create hand-written letters with a mail-merge function. We imagine something that can store 10 different scans of each letter of the alphabet. The program would then randomly pull from this database in response to text that we type. It would then merge name and addresses from another database. The final output would be a printed personalized letter that looks like it was handwritten. The program would also create a matching handwritten envelope.

It would have the ability to create 1 matching page and envelope at a time or in batches.

The program has these requirements:

1) Mail merge a template with a comma delimited database of customers.

2) The ability to store 10 scanned images of each letter of the alphabet.

3) The ability to print pages and envelopes based on a random selection of these images and text that we type.

4) The ability to have random overlaps and spacings of seccessive letters.

5) The ability to have random height above sentence line.

6) The output would be a jpeg (or equivilent) file that can be imported into MS Word so that we could either print one file per page or 4 per page or scale.

In other words, a sentence I type on the computer screen when processed by the the program would generate a page that looks handwritten.
