Print Fellas has just launched a complete makeover of their online printing site. New features include a larger design template gallery, Ajax enabled purchasing, scrollable product designs on each product page, project logs to track your order, and a completely new css designed interface. The dark grays and blacks have been replaced with bright oranges, yellow and greens. The ordering proces has been simplified, all product pages include print pricing estimators, and much improved online communication and project management. The backend is powered by a proprietary content and project management system that is integrated into the print production product flow.
There are too many new features to list, you should visit the new site and experience it yourself.
