  • Publication number: 20170344316
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing print jobs associated with multiple customers. Customer-editable design templates for printed products and design software tools enabling creation by customers of custom print product designs are provided, via a network, to multiple customers operating corresponding electronic devices. Individual print jobs corresponding to custom print product designs created by multiple different customers via the electronic devices are received and automatically aggregated into an aggregate print job comprising individual print jobs from different customers. The aggregated individual print jobs in the aggregate print job are printed simultaneously on one or more units of a shared substrate when the aggregate print job is printed.

  • Patent number: 8041607
    Abstract: Method, system and computer code for generating and displaying an image of a custom product to a customer who is in the process of ordering a different product. The image is generated automatically without a customer request and incorporates information earlier provided by the customer. When possible, the custom product is presented with design features that are similar to the design features of the different product being ordered. Edit capability is provided to allow the user to make changes to the custom product, if desired.

  • Patent number: 7187465
    Abstract: Computer-implemented methods for assembling multiple individual print jobs into an aggregate print job for printing in a print run quantity. Individual print jobs and a print quantity indicating the number of copies of the individual print job to be primed are stored. Individual print jobs are retrieved and assigned to one or more individual print job positions in an aggregate print job layout based on the number of copies of the individual print job to be printed. A retrieved individual print job having an associated print quantity that equals the print run quantity of the aggregate print job is assigned to a single position in the aggregate print job layout. A retrieved individual print job having an associated print quantity that is a multiple of the print run quantity is assigned to that multiple number of positions in the aggregate print job layout.

  • Patent number: 7145670
    Abstract: Computer-implemented methods for creating an aggregate print job containing multiple individual print jobs. Individual print jobs having a plurality of associated printing parameters are received and stored. Printing parameters associated with an individual print job may include parameters indicating the requested print quantity, product size, product type, a requested delivery date, and any required post-printing processing. The stored printing parameters are searched to identify individual print jobs having at least some printing parameters in common. Individual print jobs identified during the search are aggregated to create a larger print job such that a number of different individual print jobs may be simultaneously printed.

  • Patent number: 7133149
    Abstract: Computer-implemented methods for creating an aggregate print job for simultaneous printing of multiple individual print jobs. Individual print jobs having an associated parameter identifying the size of the product to be printed are received. A number of received individual print jobs are arranged to create an aggregate print job having multiple individual print jobs in two dimensions. Aggregate print jobs may have pre-defined individual print job locations of a pre-defined size and position with which individual print jobs of are associated or may have no pre-defined individual print job sizes and positions.
