Press release from the issuing company
Los Angeles, CA August 24, 2007 -- PrintsMadeEasy.com, the worldwide leader in online printing solutions, today announced that the company has earned the #1 rank among online printing companies featured in the 2007 Inc. 5,000, one of the most prestigious awards for high-growth companies in the private sector.
PrintsMadeEasy.com will be featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine for its robust financial performance, stellar customer service, innovative technology and online user experience. This ranking marks the company's first appearance on the Inc. 5,000 list.
"It's a great distinction to make the Inc. 5,000, but it's an even greater responsibility to continually earn such accolades in the eyes of our customers," PrintsMadeEasy.com CEO Brian Whiteman said. "We appreciate the fact that Inc. magazine places high standards and expectations before issuing these rankings. We're going to do everything in our power to continually prove why PrintsMadeEasy.com is the premier online provider of business card and postcard solutions."
Along with its #1 rank among online business cards providers, PrintsMadeEasy.com received a strong #44 rank in the category of Business Services, which was the fourth hottest industry for the fastest-growing companies nationwide. PME was ranked #829 overall, which marked one of the more impressive appearances among first-time recipients.
The 2007 Inc. 5,000 reported median revenue of $9.4 million and median three-year growth of 140 percent among the aggregate recipients. PrintsMadeEasy.com far exceeded these median figures, ranking in every top tier of the Inc. 5,000's financial performers. The Inc. 5,000 list features a profile on PrintsMadeEasy.com, including interview excerpts with Mr. Whiteman, as well as details on PME's vast service offerings, including free business cards for new customers.
"We know how important it is for business professionals to design business cards that are high quality and easy to order online," Whiteman said. "With the limited time they have to focus on business card orders, our customers want a hassle-free experience. That's exactly what we've created, and that's exactly why people are taking notice -- whether on the Inc. 5,000 list or, more directly, among PrintsMadeEasy.com's valued customers."
