Yes, that's it. To avoid multiple dialogs, don't close printing until
you are done with the whole job. You could put up some kind of progress
dialog in Rev while you are spooling the print job if you want to see
the progress. Or just don't lock the screen, so you see all the cards
Since you want to print each card on a separate piece of paper, you'll
want to insert a page break in your print loop ("print break") after you
print each card.
