When Google Wanted To Sell To Excite For Under $1 Million — And They Passed

Dawn Capital has invested a “substantial” but undisclosed amount in Optimalprint, the European online printing company. Optimalprint says it will use the new capital to expand its existing technology and distribution platform, initially in Europe but eventually globally.

The company, founded in 2007, offers premium quality, low cost printed materials for residential and business customers, such as greeting and business cards, office stationery, invitations and calendars, targeting 50 countries worldwide.

The global commercial printing market is estimated to be worth €277 Billion and Optimalprint believes that with Dawn Capital’s investment and experience in “developing fledgling, fast growing companies that operate in large, competitive markets”, it’s poised to take advantage of this opportunity.

While Dawn Capital is talking up Optimalprint’s “operational efficiency” and economies of scale, generating “market-leading” gross profit margins, in reference to Optimalprint’s ability to handle multiple print products and support billing operations across countries with different currencies and languages.

    You say your paper is eco friendly, but is it certified by the fsc?

    Are all your other products as well as the paper certified by the fsc?

    • http://www.optimalprint.co.uk Rachel Turner

      Hello. Thanks for the query. The certified products we use are:

      – Gallery art silk, our standard paper, is PEFC certified.
      – Our envelope supplier, Bong, is NS-EN ISO 14001 certified
      – Conqueror smooth wove, our premium paper soon to be launched, is FSC certified.

      We are serious our environmental credentials and in fact donate to the Green Belt Movement for every order placed with us (see our website for details).

      I hope this is helpful. Kind regards, Optimalprint.

    Hadn’t heard of this company earlier, but appears to be a strong player in EU!

    Ditto @Anurag, online printing definitely is growing fast.

    @Sagar – Online printing companies that say they’re “eco friendly” MUST be FSC certified. Otherwise, they’re just green washing.

    If both parties think that this would be the best move to grow and be more successful in the printing industry, then why not. Every business should always take risks to find out if it’s going to be really advantageous to them. Although careful thinking should always be considered. Thanks for the share!
