Terms of the deal for the acquisition of Imagekind, a user-generated site offering framed art, weren’t disclosed.

Founded in 2006, Imagekind.com offers more than one million art images by more than 50,000 established and emerging artists from all over the world. "CafePress brings the expertise, resources, and community to help get our artists and their galleries to the world faster,” says Imagekind.com CEO Kevin Saliba.
