I am not looking into a premade solution because I know some exist already. I need all of the following features and a relationship with the person who created it for future upgrades and/or integration.
Some features needed are:
Will need to have ability to design and edit multiple products such as apparel, mugs, flyers, postcards. So editable area will need to change for each product being designed.
Will need to allow the user to choose and/or change/swap the product being designed. (similar to www.ooshirts.com/t-shirt-design-la
Will allow user to upload images and/or choose from our library of clipart.
Clipart library needs to be organized and searchable from tags on the backend.
Text effects are needed as well as text outlines, color changing of outline and text, text warping, text kerning, text alignment.
Mask Effects can be added to any object in the design (similar to www.fibers.com/customize)
Must output in png(for database) and pdf(for printing) at given dimensions
Design must be saved into Sql for further retrieval and editing (we can discuss this integration)
User can see all his previously made designs OR import pre-made design templates.
In addition to the front end, I will need some backend integration so I may add more product styles with defined editable area, product colors, sizes, etc. In addition, need to add more clipart to the library along with searchable tags.
Skills: design, pdf, import
