referring to a single reference when printing in line...

i am attempting to print some mail

but the problem is that each mail piece has a common sheet

the postscript file is huge because each piece contains the code for the common sheet

i was wondering if there is a way to have the code call a "reference image"

in other words, instead of having the code for this text over and over (and over)

is it possible to simply have a reference in a pdf or whatever and then refer to it "in line"

so that each mail piece simply used the same .pdf calling it each time it was needed

does that make sense?

thanks

If you are the developer, a PostScript programmer, and it is a PostScript languagelevel 3 printer, you could use a reusablestreamdecode filter. (If not, there isn't a simple recipe to follow). See Same image multiple times in one document

I am not sure I understand your question

Can you be more specific and upload the example data

Postscript has Form facility which enable you to call or reference any EPS or PS file once and the file will be cached

and every call is simply a reference to that cached image!
