    Hey all,

    Is there a way to set a limit on how many times something is able to be printed on a website? For example, lets say i have a coupon on my website, and i only want three people to be able to print the coupon, and then the print function shuts off. If someone could help me out with this i would really appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Only if you had a login system that tracked it. However, anything than can be printed can be photo copied / scanned / saved as PDF / saved as a screenshot.

    Each coupon has a unique code ... when redeemed, it gets marked-off in the
    database as "already used". It wouldn't matter how many someone copies,
    it could only be used one time. The database would have a way of determining
    that there are three of them, but still, each of those would have a unique code
    of some kind.

    A simple coding system that only you know how to decipher in person,
    or through coding ... if they redeem it online somewhere.

    A PHP/MySQL database would be required either way,
    and you could use PHP GD to graphically code the coupon image with your text (codes, barcode).
