Insert individual map in mailing piece

I'm designing a brochure to individual property owners and would like to insert a personalize map on each piece based upon the location of their property, such as in the following example...

Map example

So, much like a mail-merge field, a map of their property would show on the piece. 

It'd have to be automated, as there are 8k of them to be mailed. 

Has such a thing been done before?

It sounds like you could do what you want with Map series—Layouts | ArcGIS Desktop and dynamic text pulled from attributes.

Hi Scott, 

Along with Kory's suggestion to use Map Series, you may also want to consider automating your work using python. Here are some links to help you get started.
