Does anyone know how or can give me a few tips on the below? Or tell me what discipline it requires and I'll post a job on odesk.

I want to build a page on a site that allows the user to type in a few words that will print out on a certificate. The certificate should have some pre-printed words, and then they can add to it, hit print, and out comes a certificate. I also want the certificate to print out as two on an 8.5x11 page.

The page should also have a graphic representation of the certificate to show the changes they are making to it.

    Hi Friends,

    You could type everything in word and just use different fonts print horizontally. You could use a program like Printmaster that's pretty cheap that has some framed certificates and images in it. Easiest though would be to use an image from the internet of one and use a photo program to edit out names and add in his then print it. I hope you will get your answer.


    Thank You.

    If I have this right, you are looking for

    A web page for user to select a certificate background / template.

    Once certificate selection is made, a second page is displayed that shows an image of the certificate and allows the user to enter text directly on it.this will give them a live preview of their certificate.

    Once happy user hits the create button and they are emailed or given a download link to the certificate in a printable format.

    Skills required:
    HTML
    CSS
    JavaScript
    PHP
    (mySQL: if storing users details)

    PM me if you need assistance.

    Tradeout, yes, that pretty much covers it. Details do not need to be stored.
    Sending you a pm.
