On 1 January 2014, Unitedprint.com SE will take over the Nuremberg-based Fotobuch-Pionier infowerk GmbH together with its subsidiaries United Shop Services, Softimpress and the Klutzeweit digital print shop.
e-communication through to web-to-print
The largest owner-operated company in the new Federal States of Germany is based in Radebeul near Dresden. It recently announced that it was going to add to its range photo products (photo prints, photo books, photo calendars, photo greetings cards, Photo posters and canvas, photo wall decorations, photo cups and photo gifts), LFP/advertising systems (large-format printing, direct textile printing, relief varnish printing for banners, lettering, displays, flags, canvases, building covers, including packaging and assembly) and web services (homepages, apps, mobiles, e-mail marketing, recommendation marketing, cloud, social media, SEM, SEA, SEO). Furthermore, Unitedprint will enter the market in mid-January with Easyprint (the web-to-print portal for small companies, private individuals and families) and offer a completely new and individual online configurable textile range featuring T-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies, aprons and bags.
"We’re really looking forward to the great opportunities that our future with Unitedprint will offer us. With our experience and know-how, especially in the field of photo, digital and large-format printing, we’ll make a valuable contribution to ensuring Unitedprint continues to achieve above-average organic and profitable growth", stated infowerk’s ongoing Managing Director, Winfried Gaber.
White Label partner programme for photo webshop
A webshop partner programme for photo products will be newly available and, as a White Label solution, enable trading partners to access the Europe-wide photo market free of charge. Jan Stradtmann, Unitedprint’s CFO: “In the age of the open, transparent and widely available internet, monopolistic structures provided by capital-market-financed photo and printing concerns are a thing of the past. With our webshop partner programme, every small photo dealer, every small print shop, every small publishing house and everyone involved in e-commerce will become a professional photo and print provider Europe-wide. In this way, we’re guaranteeing an equitable and long-overdue customer service at fair prices on the BtC photo and print market."
