Press release from the issuing company

Solana Beach, CA – February 24, 2006 – FusionPro Desktop from Printable Technologies is a powerful, versatile variable data printing (VDP) application that can be used to produce anything from post cards and labels to books and posters. This year, a personalized event guide for the 2006 PODi Applications Forum was created with FusionPro Desktop for each attendee according to their planned activities and printed by EarthColor Business Solutions, Moonachie, NJ. Starting with a 93-page FusionPro Desktop template, documents up to 140 pages long were produced using data collected during the attendee registration process. The tabbed binders - with color covers and black and white contents – were delivered with dynamic tables containing personalized agendas. Embedded PostScript commands – something ordinarily possible only with applications costing tens of thousands of dollars – automated the process of inserting tabs and slip sheets during the print run. By inserting pages on the fly each attendee received all the available handouts for the sessions he or she attended. Print output consisted of more than 500 copies of the books, comprising nearly 30,000 pages. “FusionPro Desktop is an all-in-one free-standing variable data printing solution incorporating design, data definition, and document creation. The production of the personalized attendee guides is a prime example of its power,” said Coleman Kane, president and CEO of Printable Technologies. “While we have reduced the price of FusionPro Desktop with the intent to accelerate the adoption of personalized and variable printing, we have not reduced its sophistication and versatility.
