This project is end-to-end design, development, testing, deployment of a system to enable collaborative e-greetings
With our service, one individual (the initiator) can create a "card" for his friend or coworker (the recipient) and then invite coworkers or friends (participants) to add a comment and/or photo to the ultimate e-greeting. Recipients receive an email invite to contribute to the egreeting and the card is a collaborative project for this time. Then, at a designated delivery date, the card is formatted and then delivered to the recipient. Recipients will receive an email that includes a link to the card page online, a clean PDF version of the card, and a list of contributors. Additionally, the card will be printed out and sent via US post.

Project winner will be chosen based on price, reputation, and proven intutive understanding of what we aim to achieve.
This is the first of many cool projects to come, and we appreciate your efforts to help.
Need not be fancy, but needs to be clean, professional, and include wysiwig style interactivity of the card creation. Note that we do not need many fancy templates to be designed.
Payment processing –
This should be part of first version. Should include basic payment gateway integration, including a simple couponing system.
Hosting, deployment, sysadmin:
Fairly agonistic, though in the past we have had good luck with rose hosting. Again, SMTP needs to be very good. Amazon S3 is a preferred data hosting mechanism, as it scales well and should be able to handle images well.
Must be developed in MVC framework (PHO/Ruby)
Flash Actionscript is likely a good method for this
Documentation- All development MUST be well documented
Testing- Project should include all unit testing and functional testing
