Vinyl lettering - Flash based design tool

This is a repost of a project I placed on here last week.

After lengthy searching and testing other designers, we have a new list of requirements for this project.

Thank you to everyone that submitted bids on the last project.

Please read our requirements thoroughly, we will wait until the end of the bid period before selecting a developer. We want to support the independent developers of the world, which is why we are posting our project here. Please be prepared to work with us and keep in touch throughout the process. We would like to have a working solution in 2-3 weeks or less.

We are in need of a Flash powered vinyl designer tool.

We want to be able to add products from the admin section and have them appear to our customers on the front-end, who can then put their custom lettering on it. We also want to be able to add png files that our customers can use as clipart on their designs. The png files will need to be scalable.

We want customers to be able to choose from Inch or Cm for the text size, not Point size.

We also want to be able to add and change colors from the admin based on hex values. These will show up in the color palette that the customer can use to change the colors of the clipart and the text they place on the products.

We would like to be able to add fonts from the admin interface. We want to be able to add the ttf files to a directory on the server and then supply a small image of the font that gets displayed to the customer. Fonts will need categories too, editable by us through the admin. Such as Kids, Business, Thick, Informal and so on.

Once the user is finished designing the product, the design should be saved to a database and the item added to a shopping cart.

For a shopping cart, we would like this to be integrated with zen cart, open cart, or oscommerce.

From the admin section we need to be able to download the design in PDF or some other way where we can import the design into Flexi Sign for cutting on a vinyl plotter.

The price will only vary based on number of colors. For instance, if we create a product called 12” x 12” wall lettering, we should be able to assign it a price of $10, and $5 for each additional color. Maximum of 4 colors.

We also need the users to be able to see the exact size of their creation, such as a markers showing dimensions for each item when it gets clicked on. Some of our customers have exact requirements and we want to make sure we cut the vinyl to what they need.

What we do not want

Users should NOT be able upload their own images

We do not want text to be in Point size

Some sites we like

We want something very close to this site including all the text manipulation features, curved text, spacing control. We really like the designer on one side, and the tabbed sections on the other for “products, text, clipart”. It needs preview of the fonts. Needs removal of the upload feature. Needs a few other things we mentioned above, specific measurements, etc.

We considered purchasing this script, completed in JS and Ajax, it is very close to what we need, but limited on layout and a little difficult to integrate with a shopping cart. We also like the toolset available to the customer. The builder also has a backend plugin that would allow us to download the designs in Adobe Illustrator format which we could then import very easily. The major draw back is that it doesn’t show specific dimensions to the customer and it’s not flash based.

Clean layout, simple editor

Additionally, we don't mind if the designer is based off of another project you may have developed as long as it meets our requirements once modified. A robust admin interface with the features mentioned is required.

This site is a perfect example of what we would like:

A clone of this site with a different layout would be ideal.

Skills: Adobe Flash, Flex, PHP
