Out of a small French apartment in the mid-1990s, Robert Keane ran a catalog focused on supplying small businesses with modest quantities of customizable marketing materials. By 1999, Keane's meager publication had evolved into an Internet-based company armed with patented online graphic-design tools and a printing process engineered to quickly churn out small orders of custom business cards. After barely surviving the dot-com crash of 2000, Vistaprint regrouped and calibrated its three manufacturing facilities to produce a bounty of other custom goodies. Today, the company's arsenal of web-based design tools allows users to add personalized text, photos, and designs to thousands of templates for items ranging from calendars and mugs to T-shirts and birthmarks.
