    Hopefully in a couple of months I'll have a little time to create my second web-site, which will be a part-time hobby of mine hopefully if I can manage to get some spare time.
    I want to create an application like this http://www.vansignsonline.co.uk/ when you click on 'go'. You can create your own design. I wonder how hard this is, as this would take all the design aspect out of my sign for those wanting economy signs. Anyone ever done anything like this? Would I use Flash or a different programme?:confused:
    Input appreciated and your general opinions :).

    Most applications like that are done in Flash (though I don't think that specific one was). I did something similar for Chili's a few years back:

    It's not something for the faint of heart (or anyone brand new to Flash)

    This can be done using the HMTL Canvas and Javascript. As with Flash you will need to put a lot of work into it but the HMTL rogue will be more forward compatible and a more interesting exercise in learning new technologies.
