Create similar site to www.Signazon.com, Buildasign.com and Uprinting.com
I need professional team of developers to build a completely new custom online store with Design tool that would allow customers to customize and create their own custom designed products, such as business cards, t-shirts, promotional items, signs, vinyl banners and more. Ideally I would like to model new website after sites like Uprinting.com and Signazon.com. The right team would be expereinced in html, ajax, java, asp, php, with a good knowledge and understanding of Fonts, Vector Grpahics & Algorythms, PDF, SVG, and common graphic design formats (AI, EPS, TIFF, JPEG). The job will include complete store including both front end and back end. Front end will include catalog of products and designs, design tools, user interface, cart, checkout and shipping modules. Back end will include complete site and user admin, adding of new products and designs, as well as order management and CRM systems. Everything would need to be made from the ground up as project of this size can not be built on most common free platforms (such as wordpress, drupal, magento, etc). Development will need to be under the closed doors on a secure password protected server. We would work together day by day via email and skype, narrowing down options and features we will need, creating set of diagramms and workflows. Design tool will need to be built in Java \ Ajax \ ASP \ Html code, without use of Flash. I have some other ideas that would need to be implemented on the site, similar to what Zazzle.com does with user shops and user generated designs and content. We would need to build some sort of partner \ affiliate structure to distribute payments for user designs sold in our system. I have a very good understanding of the process and what it takes as I previously worked on development of other major online vinyl banner store Esigns (www.esigns.com) - so please, unless you are trully qualified team of developers, do not bother to waste our both time. Ideal team would be of 2-5 highly skilled individual, working on creating site catalog, designs, and online design tool to work together. Project development time may vary as I'm not looking to go live with the project until mid-2014. During this time (one and a half year) I'm expecting to closely work with your team every day, polishing and improving on that we initially build. After site is launched I would retain your team of developers on continues basis to take care of additional ideas, development, and future of the project. I'm located in US, Michigan, and would prefer US or Canada based team. All ownership for the work created will be trasfered onto my company and you would sign off from re-using the development anywhere else.
I will provide detailed project overview to the right candidates so you could narrow down your bids and know what you will be dealing with. I'm expecting development to take about 1 year, after which will be a 6 month testing and improvement stage.
