We have a commercial printer client who wants us to create an online form page whereby his corporate clients can order business cards for new employees.
The form page will be run on a secure server and the output will go into a SQL database. The client will log in to an admin page and access each order.
But he wants to be able to streamline the operation. The major spec is that he wants to be able to copy and paste the font from the order-- as it's displayed right on the screen-- into Quark and InDesign and still preserve the font style and size.
We've tried the cut and paste operation on our commercial printing department's Macs for both Quark and InDesign but it won't fly.
It would seem that simply copying and pasting the names, titles, etc. from the database into Quark and InDesign, and then changing the font sytle and size, wouldn't be that big an issue, but the customer is always right, etc.
Does anybody know a solution to this one? We're baffled.
