Working with texts

Advanced print-grade text and font support are not easily implemented in most web applications. Because of this, many web-to-print solutions are limited to using only basic web fonts, leaving high-quality fonts appropriate for print out of reach. Customer's Canvas stands apart from the competition by providing support for any type of font and advanced text formatting, right out of the box.

Pixel-perfect text rendering

Customer's Canvas ensures that you get exactly the same design that you see in our WYSIWYG editor after it is rendered to a print-ready file. Be confident in consistency from the screen to the press with no broken text layouts or font issues.

User-friendly text input

Most web-to-print editors only support text editing with round trips to the server to avoid any possible design glitches caused by the limitations of HTML technology. Eliminate this extra step with Customer’s Canvas and provide your clients with a complete WYSIWYG personalization experience.

Plain or rich text

Cover all possible user scenarios by choosing one of two types of text layers depending on your needs.

A single- or multi-line text layer for basic layouts great for when users only need to enter a few lines of text.

Help your users create eye-catching designs with beautiful text layouts. The online print editor gives users full control over their final design with detailed text options like tracking, alignment, justification, leading, indents, and more. Other advanced typographic features such as condensed and sparse tracking, line spacing, and paragraph margins give Customer’s Canvas the upper hand over the rudimentary text editors of other web-to-print solutions.

Custom fonts

Your customers don’t have to be limited to the same standard fonts that everyone has access to. You can enrich the online editor with any number of custom fonts, both free and commercial. TrueType, OpenType, and other font formats are all supported.

Multi-column text

No matter what kind of text your user is typing, there are several methods to make it easier to read. For example, you can configure a number of columns in a specific text block. As end-users change the text in the editor, the number of columns is automatically maintained.
