Printing Postcards - Adobe Indesign Windows

Hi All, I am new to the program. I am trying to print postcards. I have the doent set up, but I am only able to print one card on each sheet. the size of the post card is half the page. I would like to print two post cards on each page with a mail merge. Can someone please direct me on how to accomplish this? Thanks in advance....

    How about making the page double the size and copy / pasting the entire postcard design to make it 2 per page in InDesign.
    e.g. if your Postcard is A5 landscape, make the page A4 portrait

    Otherwise there might be a print driver option to produce multiple copies on a page, but this isn't an ID option

    Hi, Thanks for your reply. I did try that. However, when I put the mail merge in the doent I now need to have 2 recipients for each page. I tried selecting multiple record layout, but it just inserted the first person on the list twice on the first page ( two postcards per page ). any suggestions?

    Try searching through the forum about this. I'm pretty sure someone else had this same issue recently.

    I assume each postcard contains unique information?

    Just set up a 2 page doent as needed, then use Data Merge to place and link to a delimited text file with the information and/or images you want to use.
