I'd like to create an 'invitation matrix' which will be printed on both sides of A2 or A3 paper and looks like this:

|front_11|front_12|...|front_1n|    |back_11|back_12|...|back_1n|
|front_21|front_22|...|front_2n|    |back_21|back_22|...|back_2n|
               ...                               ...
|front_m1|front_m2|...|front_mn|    |back_m1|back_m2|...|back_mn|

i.e., there are m*n identical invitations (n and m are integers, of course), each of them has two sides with some text plus images.

For the paper format I suppose the geometry package will suite my needs. What about the rest? How to automate this work in order to create just one front side text and images plus one back side text and images and fill all the cells in the above matrices automatically? Additionally, I'd like to have cell's borders printed on the paper for convenient cutting, so, maybe tikz package is worth considering.

A non tikz solution might be to use the package labels – Andrew Swann Feb 15 '13 at 11:30
@AndrewSwann, thanks, I'll take a look at that package. Does it support A2, A3 paper formats? – Physicsworks Feb 15 '13 at 12:10
I think so. I just uses the values of \textwidth or \paperwidth, etc. So if it doesn't just get geometry to set these. – Andrew Swann Feb 15 '13 at 12:20
Also see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/100865/… and/or tex.stackexchange.com/questions/100557/… for ways to stick a bunch of data into an array that is recallable by indices. – Steven B. Segletes Mar 9 '13 at 18:07
I've closed here as without some form of example of what you've tried I don't see an answer being supplied: unclear, off-topic or too broad might all apply as things stand. – Joseph Wright Aug 3 '14 at 9:13
