BUSINESS LIFE: Owzat! Keeping fans in picture; Digital printer will send out snaps of stars.
A DIGITAL printing company from Warwickshire hopes to bowl over cricket fans after linking up with a leading website.
Leamington firm dipinto.co.uk, based at Sydenham Industrial Estate, has secured a contract with Cricinfo to supply fans with action prints of all the top players via the internet.
Fans can log on to www.cricinfo.com, select the picture they want and buy it by credit card in various formats from regular size to door-poster size.
Mugs, T-shirts and mouse mats can also be emblazoned with the selected photograph.
Dipinto already provides the service for football and tennis fans and hopes to branch into boxing.
Declan Mellett, sales and marketing manager for dipinto, said: "The benefit of this service is that not only can you purchase high-quality prints of the players but also will be able to have the latest action pictures."
Alex Chamberlen, director of sales for cricinfo.com, said: "We are excited at the prospect of working with dipinto because it offers our users a new range of products and adds value to their experience of cricinfo.com.
"We recognise the level of commitment that our users have to the game.
"Dipinto has given us a platform to sell images of the leading players and to create exclusive products for cricket fans."
