VENLO, The Netherlands--March 16, 2005-- VistaPrint, the source for high-quality graphic design, Internet printing and premium service, today announced the launch of four country-specific web sites to bring the total number of sites operated by the company to 16. Small businesses and consumers in these countries will now be able to design and order VistaPrint's high-quality, full-color products in their respective languages and currencies at a low cost.
"We built our technological infrastructure to easily scale and expand into multiple countries around the globe," said Robert Keane, president and CEO of VistaPrint. "There are more than 11 million Internet users in these four countries alone and it is a fantastic opportunity for VistaPrint to expand to meet the printing needs of small businesses and consumers in these markets."
The new sites are: Belgium at www.vistaprint.be, Switzerland at www.vistaprint.ch, Ireland at www.vistaprint.ie and New Zealand at www.vistaprint.co.nz. Products from these sites as well as other sites in Europe and Japan are produced at VistaPrint's facility in Venlo, The Netherlands. All of VistaPrint's printed products are satisfaction guaranteed.
VistaPrint is harnessing the Internet to revolutionize the graphic design and printing world. Unlike costly traditional printing techniques which produce custom printed orders one at a time, VistaPrint employs patented technologies to aggregate custom orders from around the globe and to print them in groups at highly automated production facilities. This technology enables VistaPrint to deliver enormous volumes of high-quality, customized orders simultaneously and for a fraction of the cost of traditional graphic designers and printers.
