PLEASE READ ENTIRE PROJECT BEFORE BIDDING. GENERIC MASS BIDS WON'T BE CONSIDERED; THIS IS A UNIQUE PROJECT AND REQUIRES A UNIQUE BID. THANKS!
A sign company needs a new website (will be running on Linux w/ Apache, PHP), and i’ll need scripting to include the following:
- all customer to custom design a sign. Based on user’s choice of common dimensions (i.e. choice A, 4”x8”; choice B, 12”x18”, etc.), giving user somewhat of a WYSIWYG editor, allow user a choice of colors, maybe common patterns, all user to enter text to put on the sign, slight control over placement, give view of final product. The file, once approved for production, is sent to the sign company for proof (sign company sends a proof to customer for one final approval), then it gets printed.
- popup or embedded calculator, to calculate cost based on variables given by sign company, but also based on customization by customer (i.e. for banner material, cost per sq.ft. is $12, for corrugated metal, cost per sq.ft. is $18. If the customer selects three 8”x”14 signs of a given material, how much does this total?)
- pass through (or fetch) shipping prices from [url removed, login to view] based on user’s zip code and shipping requirements, weight and dimensions
- secure payment processing (instant pay via credit card, possibly allow the option to “arrange payment with Sign Company” – allow sign company to approve an order for shipment based on special terms, maybe that customer is billed monthly or another special arrangment)
I’ll probably set up the site OScommerce, mainly for the login shopping cart, payment processing and customer tracking features, but a majority of the site will be your script, and the sign company’s portfolio.
the site should be somewhat similar in function to [url removed, login to view], although ours will be more simplistic (we don't have as many product lines, we don't need the online proof system because the sign company will want hands-on each proof)
I'LL DO THE FRONT END DESIGN. THIS PROJECT IS MAINLY FOR THE BACK END SCRIPTS (PHP, CGI) FOR 1) THE "DESIGN YOUR SIGN" FUNCTION, 2) COST CALCULATION/PULL DATA FROM [url removed, login to view] (although it wouldn't hurt if it looks pretty!)
Please if bidding, send links to similar projects you managed.
oops, first item should read:
"allow customer to custom design a sign"
signs range from real estate yard signs, to billboards, to banners, to flat storefront signs, automobile wrap, window perforated image, laminated vinyl, etc.
great example of the design online feature here:
also, GREAT example of function here:
but prefer designed in php.
will consider asp programs if price is substantially cheaper (because many of the mods are already developed), rather than design from scratch.
***SORRY, I'M CLOSING THIS AND RELISTING IN ORDER TO COMPACT OUR NEEDS AND MAKE IT MORE CLEAR, AS WELL AS RAISE DOLLAR AMOUNT***
i'll contact all potential bidders and ask to rebid.
