PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A company known for selling business cards and other customized publishing products is planning a 125-person sales office in Rhode Island.

Vistaprint Corporate Solutions President Don LeBlanc made the announcement Wednesday with Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo (ray-MAHN’-doh).

The company is seeking $2.2 million in tax credits awarded to employers that create new jobs in the state.

It would be a Providence-based national sales office for Vistaprint Corporate, a unit of Venlo, Netherlands-based Cimpress N.V. The division emerged from the broader Vistaprint brand in 2015 to focus on supplying medium-sized and large companies.

Vistaprint’s U.S. headquarters is in Waltham, Massachusetts.

LeBlanc says the company considered expanding in Waltham but opted for Providence because of its talent pool, lower costs and the state incentives.

The jobs would be in sales and design.
