About Us

We invest in and help build customer-focused, entrepreneurial, mass customization businesses for the long term.

Our Passion

We’re passionate about empowering people to make an impression through individually meaningful, personalized physical products. Cimpress makes customized print, signage, apparel, gifts, identity merchandise, packaging and other products accessible and affordable to everyone.

Long-Term

We seek team members and shareholders who think and act like long-term owners of Cimpress. We pursue intrinsic value per share as our uppermost financial objective because we believe that intrinsic value, not short-term financial metrics, aligns with our commitment to long-term value creation for all stakeholders: customers, team members, long-term shareholders and society.

This chart illustrates how our focus on the long term has propelled a long history of growth.

A History of Innovation

Robert Keane, our CEO, founded Cimpress in 1994 from his small apartment in Paris as a one-person company named Bonne Impression. Ever since, Cimpress has empowered customers though technology and innovation. We were the first to offer real-time (“client side”) graphic design manipulation in internet browsers. The first to use software and automation to aggregate individual web-to-print orders into batch production processes. We invest over $200 million per year in technology and development and have been awarded hundreds of patents.

Much more than a printing company

Our focus is “mass customization” rather than “printing” for two reasons.

First, because we serve customer markets far beyond the traditionally-defined print industry. For instance, signage, apparel, promotional products, glassware, packaging, displays, textiles, and other products, or by customization methods other than printing such as embroidery, etching, engraving, silk screening and more.

Second, we are not a traditional supplier of any of these products. We eliminate high minimum order quantities, high prices, waste, long lead times, setup costs, and complex quoting and ordering processes. We make ordering customized goods simple and affordable.

Working at Cimpress

Our world-class team members around the world work together to solve complex customer problems. We love a challenge, thrive on change, and value a healthy work hard, play hard attitude.
