HAMILTON, BERMUDA, Dec 11, 2007 - VistaPrint Limited, the leading online supplier of high-quality graphic design services and customized printed products to small businesses and consumers, today announced that it was named a finalist for the second consecutive year in the annual Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange Awards. VistaPrint's unique logo tool was named as a finalist in the applied technology category, along with other great entries from companies like Foot Joy and Compete, Inc. All of the finalists were honored at an awards ceremony on November 8 at the Boston Marriott Copley Place.
"VistaPrint prides itself on having one of the most talented, creative software development teams in the industry," said Don Nelson, senior vice president of capability development for VistaPrint. "But in reality it's our internal collaboration across a number of groups, including creative and acquisition marketing, that allows for projects like our logo tool to take shape and ultimately give our customers options they can't find anyplace else. As we continue to grow, we improve the overall customer experience, and give small businesses and consumers tools they can use to better express themselves."
