NEW YORK, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Bigstock, a leading provider of stock images and a subsidiary of Shutterstock (NYSE: SSTK), today announced a new API program along with two world-class partners: CafePress Inc.

These partners will utilize Bigstock's recently released API to provide their customers with access to Bigstock's expansive library of professional, commercially licensable photographs and illustrations.
