4over4.com to Launch Advanced Online Design Tool

ASTORIA, NY—August 2, 2011—4over4.com has announced plans to launch an advanced online design tool in the coming weeks that will provide customers with a simple and free way to design professional artwork for their print orders. This tool will sport a suite of professional graphic design capabilities typically found in professional graphic design applications purchased for desktop installation.

Users will be able to work with more than 1,000 free templates that 4over4.com owns, including templates for flyers, brochures, business cards, post cards, booklets and more. The three key advantages that a design tool of this nature presents for the customer are evident:

  • First, a tool of this nature saves cost for the customer, since there will be no need to hire a professional graphic designer to produce the proofs prior to ordering.
  • Second, customers have more control over the final design of their proofs, as they can perform real-time edits for a final design that is as close as possible to what they want.
  • Third, a tool like this will add a fun dimension to the online printing process, as customers will inevitably find it to be an interesting way to print online.

The 4over4.com online design tool is built with Flash ActionScript 3 to enable real-time animation and design effects. Technologies like PHP, CodeIgniter, Apache and MySQL were also used to develop the free design tool, which works well on Windows and Linux OS platforms, and is also cross-browser compatible (will work with Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 9, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, Opera and Chrome).

    I doubt that a serious business would ever think of not hiring a designer providing they can afford one. Designers don’t just know how to work the design programs, they use their imagination, thinking outside of the box (template) to come up with solutions tailor made for their clients. I have no doubt that this template based approach will be "good enough" for many people’s needs and that 4Over4 will be able to serve that niche.
