Is it possible that you misread what the printer needs? The way I  
understand it, they want one PDF file from you, but you need to have  
that one PDF file account for 500 different addresses in one layout.  
Could they mean that you supply them with one PDF file, and they will  
change the address stuff for each recipient? If that is the case, then  
you might be able to produce a PDF file with a changeable field where  
the address/recipient information is to go.

Can scribus do that?
