Vistaprint N.V. operates as a technology and manufacturing-driven company. The company aggregates, through the Internet, various individually small, customized orders for a spectrum of print, signage, apparel, and similar products. The company brings its products to market through various brands that deliver marketing products and services to the small business, and home and family markets. These brands include Vistaprint, its major global brand for micro business marketing products and services, as well as various brands that the company has acquired that serve the needs of various market segments, including resellers, small and medium businesses with differentiated service needs, and consumers purchasing products for personal use. The company has standardized, automated and integrated the design and production process, from design conceptualization to product shipment and service delivery. On the Vistaprint Websites, customers use the company’s proprietary online design software to create and order full-color, personalized, professional-looking physical and digital marketing products and services, without any prior design training or experience. Customers have access to extensive graphic designs, design templates, photographs and illustrations, as well as logo design services and content suggestions. The company is also able to automatically match and adapt graphic content from one product format to another, which allows the company to generate and display additional products and services as part of the ordering process. For photo products used by home and family customers, its Albumprinter Holding B.V. subsidiary also provides self-service design software for page creation and layout functions. In contrast, through its People & Print Group B.V. and Pixartprinting S.p.A Websites, the company focuses on the upload of production-ready graphic files that are created in desktop publishing files.
