Robert Keane, president and CEO of Cimpress, also added, "resellers and graphic professionals greatly value reliable, professional, rapid delivery of high-quality, price-competitive products. With Tradeprint, we’ve found a partner that delivers consistently on those criteria thanks to a highly talented and focused team.
