VistaPrint is Rebranding to Vista

Leading printing and marketing service provider VistaPrint has made a couple of acquisitions that are shaping the company's future. Crello and Depositphotos are now under the VistaPrint umbrella as the company aims to serve small businesses with digital services.

With that in mind, VistaPrint has also announced a rebrand to simply Vista as its ambitions now go beyond offering printing services. Fortunately, Vista owns Vista.com, a domain it acquired in 2007 for $1.25 million.

Thanks for the nice rundown of topics @James Iles. I had not noticed the 5th instalment in the series by @johnn - must give it a read!

Re the Vistaprint rebrand, while I can see the elegance of the rebrand, and that it allows broadening of services it might offer, I personally think they have such a well-known brand already that not sure that the upgrade gains them much.

Thanks again,

Bob
