I'm getting started to develop Web to Print system.
My main concern is which client-side techology should I use:
- or something else?
For now, idea is that user/customer choose
- Product eg: Business card
- Attributes: Dimensions,Paper type, ... etc
- Template or blank
- Adjust product (editor)
- Preview & order
Output should be PDF 300dpi.
My main issue is: adding/adjusting text in editor. (font size, font family...).
Because application should be cross browser. And I think that 10px Arial can't be the same in Firefox 5 and IE 8.
It must be pixel perfect in every browser. If somebody order $100 of business cards, and text is different that he/she saw when ordering - that is a big problem.
So, Flash platform should be the answer. But, as I see it's dying technology, 2012 is here - HTML5 is replacing Flash rapidly.
I hope that you understand me, so every guideline or few smart words would be very appreciating.
