PrintCafe, a Pittsburgh provider of print management and e-commerce systems for the graphic arts industry, has purchased all of the intellectual property assets formerly owned by Impresse Corp. (Sunnyvale, CA). Impresse provided business-to-business collaboration and e-commerce services for the creation and procurement of printed marketing materials. Its primary markets were corporations, agencies and agency suppliers.

PrintCafe purchased the Impresse intellectual property assets from Sherwood Partners, a business advisory firm in the technology area and the assignee of Impresse's assets for the benefit of its creditors under California law. While other details of the agreement were not disclosed, printCafe states that it did not assume any Impresse obligations or liabilities.

"We intend to take all steps required to keep the Impresse systems running in an attempt to limit any disruption of service for former Impresse customers," says Marc Olin, president and co-CEO of printCafe. "We hope to work closely with these companies to manage a smooth transition to the printCafe family."
