Hi,

I need some advice, we are about to start a project where we need a company to be able to generate marketing material which will be in the form of a jpg or pdf.
for example, a franchise would allow each branch to insert their phone number on a web form and click submit the application would then generate the files and send to the relevant supplier

Do you know of a 3rd party tool that would do something like this?
we are using .net framework version 4

"Print Ready" implies Photoshop 300 DPI images that can used in a CMYK process for printing.  The images normally seen on the web are 96 DPI RGB process.  Last time I checked, Internet Explorer would not display CMYK images.  

Historically, this has been done by a person using Photoshop because it was not 'do-able' in practical terms on the web.  It may be possible now but I suggest you research what you actually need for printing.  If you really need what is called "Print Ready", you may not be able to do it easily on the web.  You might however be able to make an arrangement with a printing company like VistaPrint to have it done properly.

VistaPrint can do it but they have an entire printing company supporting what they are doing, not just a web site.  What is the website you were given?
