Founded in 2004, Onlineprinters is one of the largest web-to-print services providers in Europe. The Company has grown strongly in recent years and evolved as one of the market leaders in the European online printing market, operating under the well-renown brand “DieDruckerei” in Germany and “Onlineprinters” in the rest of Europe. The Company offers printing services for marketing materials such as brochures, business cards, catalogues and flyers, primarily to small and medium sized businesses.

A centralized production facility paired with state-of-the-art offset and digital print technology allow for high quality products offered at very competitive prices. The Company operates web portals in six different languages and serves 30 countries across Europe.

“We have found a very attractive partner in TA, who has significant experience in successfully internationalizing online business models. GCA Altium managed an efficient M&A process and understood our requirements to find the ideal partner for Onlineprinters” said Walter Meyer, CEO, Onlineprinters.
