Hello,

While you can send a batch print to a defined Microsoft Print to PDF or Microsoft XPS Document writer this will attempt to save the card template as a file but it will treat each card template as an individual file to save so you will have to confirm the save by providing a file name and saving the file which will start the next card template save as an individual file.
You can choose to export any card template as an image file however, this only works on individual card templates and will not work in a batch export attempt.

In CardExchange Producer Enterprise, it is possible to store the card preview into a database column at print time.
Also, there is the option of using an additional plugin (FileExchange) that could then also export this image to a file as a jpg file.

I take it the requirement is more for auditing purposes so that you can keep a visual record of each printed card?

CardExchange Producer is a card production application, so batch management of files/images or exporting of previews is not something that we really focus on.
Having said that you can always configure a template so that it does not print, then you could in effect print all records and process the stored previews etc... but no printing would actually happen.

Yes you would need an Enterprise edition license to have the option of using the card preview, as well as the FileExchange plugin to store the preview to a file location.
You will need to contact sales regarding the plugin, you can email

Attached is a document to explain how to set the plugin up.
