Business card maker for my website


#1
Hi All,

Does anyone know of any services that provide a business card maker for using on a website?
I know something like this could be coded. However, I'm no expert in this field.

What I'm looking for is something that shows a bunch of business card templates. The user selects one, types in their details, it shows how it will look on screen and then they can submit the order.

What are your thoughts on the options, bearing in mind that I probably wouldn't be doing any coding?

Ta,

Graeme :thumb:

Obviously it is possible but given I am a designer not a coder, wouldn't even know where to start to explain a "how to" - I have happy accidents when it comes to web design :icon_biggrin:. You need Mr. Code Monkey aka Corrosive. As a compromise could you not just upload the templates with dummy text ?

I think you're right. I'm no code monkey either. Templates with dummy text it'll have to be in the meantime.
If anyone can think of any other solutions for the future I'd be grateful. :thumb:

Hi Graeme, I may have a solution for you. To give you an idea, take at look at these: Welcome | TemplateCloud - The Online Template Market Place and Home | Business Printing and Design. Flyers, Leaflets, Business Cards and more by Flyerzone.co.uk

if you're interested I'll email you some more detail but here it is in brief. Real graphic designers produce designs, TemplateCloud.com turns these into editable templates. These are then sold on different sites. Via an API (https://www.mashape.com/templatecloud) you can connect the Templatecloud.com platform to your own website similar to this: Online drukwerk ontwerpen en bestellen voor bedrijven zoals visitekaartjes, flyers en ander drukwerk

Seems interesting. However, I'm not really understanding.
Would I be selling through my website or some other one?
Also, I'd presume there was a setup cost or monthly fee?
If you could give me more details, I'd be grateful.

It's all through your own website. Flyerzone.co.uk and Drukland.be are examples of websites using the templatecloud platform.

You use the api to plug the editable design library with all the search functionality, thumbnails and editor into your own website. Your clients visit your site, choose a design they like and personalises it online, then TemplateCloud delivers you a print ready PDF when they go through checkout.

I'll email you with the detail.
Thanks

Something like this?

Edit this Fiddle - jsFiddle

I knocked something similar up a while ago, to get the data for the backend you'd just send through a ajax to a php file etc. or at least that's what I did and worked ok, admittedly the jquery isn't great....
That looks fairly impressive, but a bit too complicated for my simple brain. Do you have a way of implementing it with a pritt stick? :icon_wink:
