Ok so i have read lots of posts here about n-up postcards. It seems i have to use the Telescoping N-Up dll. My question is if there is any examples or help documents on how to use this item? thanks.

Create a 1 up page in design. Make that page type 'Virtual' in it's basic attributes, the size should be the size of your postcard. Create another page of type 'normal', page should equal your sheet size going through the printer. Add N-up printing to that normal page. Go into the n-up printing and select N-up options. If you have a data file associated with it select change 'data page with each repeat' the page to execute n-up should be your 1up virtual page. If this is a simplex job you should be fine now, if it's duplex on the back page you want to select both 'data page with each repeat' and 'advance data page before executing'.
If you want to deck the job in your process in production you'll want to add the 'telescoping sort' into your process before the design and adjust it accordingly.

If you don't have 'telescoping sort' available in production, you'll need to add it.
Go to
Look for downloadable resources/plugins/sort for n-up.

This link will tell you how to install that plugin.
