Bipin Narang, Director Marketing, Vistaprint India, said, âIndia is a significant market opportunity for us with its rapidly increasing internet penetration and huge base of small businesses as well as a large consumer base under the age of 25 years that is net-savvy. We understand that India is an extremely cost-conscious market, and with our remarkable technology backbone, Vistaprint not only offers an amazing price-quality proposition, but will drive a fundamental change in the way small businesses and consumers will order printed products and services in India. We are happy to partner with Carat Media Services for our business challenges.â
Commenting on the win, Himanka Das, Senior Vice-President, Carat Media Services, said, âItâs a special win for us as we will be part of the Vistaprint growth plans in India. The team at Carat is very excited to design integrated media ecosystems for Vistaprintâs business challenges in India. It gives us an opportunity to go beyond looking at people just as a demograhic and instead deliver media solutions based on consumersâ relationship with different media, the brand and the way printing business exists in India.â
