httprint Posts Over $30 Million in Sales 2001, Already Exceeding 2000 by 600%
Press release from the issuing company
SAN FRANCISCO, March 6, 2001- httprint Inc., the full-service provider for the print and publishing industry, today announced that its year-to-date 2001 revenues have surpassed $33 million just two months into the new calendar year.
These revenues, which represent billed and contracted professional print services and branded e-commerce site subscription sales to enterprise clients, reflect dramatic growth over 2000, when httprint's sales totaled $4.5 million.
httprint attributes its record growth to a versatile business model and to recently signed contracts with major global firms such as DIRECTV, Visa International, Fiat and Providian Bank. A full-service provider, httprint is the only company to offer traditional print management support and consulting including creative, design, layout, premedia, production and fulfillment, as well as branded, corporate Web site hosting services.
This unique and powerful combination, which does not rely on a transaction-based exchange model, helps businesses streamline communications, standardize workflows and reduce procurement and marketing costs.
"httprint remains focused on delivering the highest-quality production results and value-added services that drive cost-savings for enterprise customers," said Mark Porter, httprint CEO. "Our contracted sales results for 2001 indicate that we are well-positioned to exceed our sales goals for the year and to reach our profitability targets."
"httprint is successfully conquering the New Economy with old-world business acumen blending the best of traditional print production management and consulting with a sound e-commerce offering that our competitors can't match," added Porter.
