The chief executive of Vistaprint said Wednesday evening that she was dismayed to learn that her company had sent religious pamphlets that offended two men expecting programs for their same-sex wedding, and she pledged to do all she could to “make it right’’ for the couple.

The Dutch custom printing company, which has its US headquarters in Lexington, is working on damage control as it tries to figure out what went wrong.

Stephen Heasley and Andrew Borg, who received the pamphlets in place of the programs on the eve of their Pennsylvania wedding last year, have sued the company in federal court for Massachusetts, arguing that the delivery was intended “to threaten and attack’’ them.
