Hi all, I am trying to open a graphics and printing website and was wondering if anyone knew what type of software/program/script major printing sites use to let users upload art, design business cards, design logos, submit art and alow for log in and project statous. I know its kinda borderline with the rules of the forum. but any help would be a great help. or if you could give me some hints on what to google.

Hey every one just checking back, I did talk to a printing company yesterday, (trying to get a printing quote) and i asked the sales rep if he knew what kinda software they use on the website and he told me it had some thing to do with the name ( Insite ) but he was not really sure, now i tried to google this to see what i came up with and did not really get that far, if you have any ideas about this please let me know.

Since I've been in the Printing Industry since 1990, I can concur that much of what you see out there is custom based. For example, our system is totally custom and we have a integrated web based solution for our clients where they can place orders, set up proofs, etc, it's pretty intense but basic in appearance. It has to be or the users get lost. You can only give them one step at a time. :)
Many of the larger manufacturers are providing web services to their top distributors. For example, if you are an ASI Member, you have access to all sorts of really neat stuff that will wow your clients. That entire backend is custom though, nothing off the shelf that I'm aware of.
