In addition, FedEx will be a primary express carrier for VistaPrint's orders coming from its production facility in Windsor, Ontario, to locations in North America.

Using a new application developed by VistaPrint and FedEx Office, customers will be able to design and order their customized stationery and marketing materials online at or in-person at any of the 1,600 FedEx Office Print & Ship Centers in the US.

“We're very happy to be working with an unquestioned leader in the retail print and copy marketplace, and believe that the synergy between the two companies will yield great results,” said Robert Keane, president and CEO at VistaPrint, in a statement. “There are various components of this deal, including the sourcing aspects, which we believe will allow VistaPrint to increase its level of service and consistency while reaching more small business customers, which we are confident will benefit us in the long run.”
