We want to allow the buyer to customize a product with text and sometimes an logo. We’ll compensate for help - $$$

Let’s assume that an item has 4 text fields available where the customer can enter the text to be engraved on the item. The product page will also have an upload field where he\she can add a logo\graphic file. If the buyer changes the quantity to 2, then the number of text fields changes to 8 (4 for each of the 2 trophies), while maintaining the upload field where he can upload the logo\graphic\text file. If the quantity changes to 3, the number of field texts changes to 12 and so forth.

Any solutions\ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thx,
E1

After having a look at that site I don’t think it flows well. The Magento way of custom product options is better. It keeps everything on the same page. Make the customers upload stuff one at a time, also give them visual feedback on the uploaded images. Image upload is not quite in the product yet. I used a upload script in an iframe to get around that.
