During the pandemic, we created hundreds of Square Online sites, but customers needed more, they needed simple designs for flyers, menus, and a way to take advantage of the table tent QR code generator that square provides, but we were operating at our maximum capacity, so naturally, we did what we do best, we automated the whole thing.
What it does
It's a web to print solution that allows Square merchants to design simple Branded flyers, table tents, and menus automatically
How we built it
We used React and Tailwind CSS for the front end and Node.JS for the back end.
Challenges we ran into
Generating high-resolution PDF files was one of the most difficult things to achieve, also generating the PDF batch from the QR zip file was also a bit challenging
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The quality of the file generated is excellent, and the fact that the customer can extract and generate a complete menu from the items in the square admin in minutes is great
What we learned
That we can build apps that complement all the virtual tools that square provides with traditional media
What's next for All my prints
We want more designs and we also want to allow customers to order prints directly from the app printed in recycled paper and other sustainable materials.
