FedEx launches an online custom printing service

Through an alliance with VistaPrint, FedEx Office launched this week a web-based custom-printing service for producing business cards, letterhead, promotional materials and other printed products.

Through an alliance with VistaPrint Ltd., FedEx Office launched this week a web-based Design & Printer Center, a self-service application for producing customized business cards, letterhead, promotional materials and other printed products.

FedEx Office, the retail office supplies and business services unit of FedEx Corp., is making the custom-printing service available through FedexOffice.com as well as through online kiosks in most of its 1,600 FedEx Office Print & Ship Centers in the U.S. FedEx Office was formerly known as FedEx Kinko’s.

The new service lets customers log onto FedexOffice.com to upload their own graphics and images or access thousands of design templates for customizing business and personal products.

VistaPrint, No. 44 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide, announced a multi-year agreement with FedEx earlier this year to provide the shipping and business services company with an online customized printing application.

FedEx rival UPS launched a similar service earlier this month that lets customers design and order customized printed products for pickup at a local UPS Store. The UPS service, which is not associated with VistaPrint, is offered through Mail Boxes Etc., the UPS unit that operates as the franchisor of the UPS Store chain.
