What online print shops must look for in web to print software

The range of choices in software for online print shops can be daunting, but in general, the best option has to be a solution that is both rich in features and easy to use. In addition to this, the entire setup has to offer fast and easy integration with a company’s existing online presence, while also giving a fantastic user experience to those all-important customers. Our Online Print Solution (OPS) has been developed with all of this in mind.

A design that is truly mobile-friendly

Modern browsing habits have led to the majority of web users now using mobile devices to access the Internet, and this is why your web to print solution must use a responsive design. This is about more than just having a reduced viewing area – a fluid and flexible layout is essential, as this means all OPS sites are instantly optimised for the screen size and resolution on the end user’s device. Remember that having to squint will lead to a significant number of lost sales!

Full WordPress integration

WordPress is no longer just a tool for bloggers, and its vast plugin library has now turned it into the content management system of choice for hundreds of thousands of eCommerce sites. This is why Online Print Solution pages are fully compatible with WordPress, making a complete WordPress web to print solution. It’s incredibly straightforward to link into your current Internet sales channels, and for additional peace of mind, our developers continually ensure that it is compliant with all updates to the WordPress build.

The ability to create print-ready PDFs

The Portable Document Format was designed to provide a universally readable printing format across every possible device, and Online Print Solution sites are capable of converting all customised templates into print-ready PDFs. These files can then be instantly returned to the customer for their approval, giving them the best possible ‘preview’ of how the finished article will look, before the printing company gets the all-clear to proceed with the job.
