RPI, a digital-image printing company in Seattle, is announcing Wednesday its purchase of DPI in Atlanta for an undisclosed amount.

DPI specializes in personalized web-to-print products for large companies and has 27 employees. RPI chief executive Rick Bellamy said the purchase will expand RPI's reach to the East Coast, reduce shipping costs and waits and expand its personalized-print products.

Started as a family-owned commercial printer in 1979, RPI creates the personalized-photo books and greeting cards consumers order online from photo sharing and printing companies.

The small but rapidly growing market for digital-photo merchandise is worth an estimated $2 billion.
