admin Web-to-Print

SmartCanvas is the latest addition to our Web-to-print platform, providing a rich powerful online design environment to version and edit documents using an intuitive HTML5 interface.

Introducing SmartCanvas

SmartCanvas powered by DirectSmile is a Web-based product design tool that enables administrators within our Web-to-print software to create templates for a variety of products such as greeting cards, flyers, business cards, brochures, stationery, and banners.

Buyers can use the product design tools to personalize products by selecting images from galleries and adding their own text, images, QR codes, and shapes.

  • Users can create powerful rich templates within the browser, without the need for 3rd party applications or plug-ins
  • Templates can be quickly and easily published directly to a Web-to-print store front.
  • Users can then log in, customize and order products using the templates – all online!
Powerful Document Editing Features

SmartCanvas has been designed to include and support many of the convenient features typically only available in a traditional desktop page layout software. These include:

  • Multiple levels of undo (and redo)
  • Keyboard shortcuts
  • Right-click contextual menus
  • Layers
  • Data tools – form fields, variables and switches
  • Real-time preview of product customisation
