Tuesday, September 30, 2003

CHICAGO, September 29, 2003 – Printable Technologies, Inc. (www.printable.com), the leading online software provider for the graphic arts industry, is presenting the newest advances of its award-winning suite of online systems for the graphic arts industry at Graph Expo Booth #5432. Booth demonstrations and presentations will focus on the powerful Printable products and new partnerships that are widening the company's leadership in the field. Some of the Printable Graph Expo 2003 exhibit booth highlights include: PrintFusion3 PrintFusion3, the latest version of Printable’s variable data technology, takes online variable data applications to a new level as it provides a turnkey solution within Printable’s already strong eBusiness offering. Advanced end-user interfaces are available allowing control over layout, font selection, images, and more. PrintFusion3 features advanced output options such as PPML, VDX, VPS, and support for OPI workflows. PrintFusion3 is the result of a newly announced strategic partnership with Datalogics, an Adobe Ventures company. The partnership enables enhanced variable data composition capabilities through Printable's PrintFusion on-line print order application. Datalogics' DL Formatter, DL-1000, a high-speed, variable print composition solution for personalized communication will supplement and ultimately replace PrintFusion's existing variable data publishing engine. PrintReady Acquisition Printable and Extensis jointly announce that Printable plans to acquire PrintReady from Extensis, and continue service to its customers as well as development of the product. Printable has already incorporated PrintReady into its product offering for file inspection and transfer. Further plans for customer transition will be announced at a later date. Printable Server Editions Printable has developed three new server editions that are available for licensing and immediate installation. The Data Center Server Edition serves clients who prefer to have a dedicated server with tier one security through their own stand-alone servers hosted at the Printable secure data center. The Onsite Server Edition is installed on a customer's own servers which reside in their server farm at their location. The Enterprise Server Edition is for large clients who mandate that any technology of this type must reside behind their company firewall. Printable and HP Indigo Integration Growth Printable's alliance with Hewlett-Packard, announced last year, and its integration into HP ProductionFlow, continues to provide growth for both companies. In the last year alone, the number of Printable customers who also own HP Indigo presses has more than quadrupled, and is projected to grow further into next year. Printable and Prism Integration Growth Printable’s alliance with Prism USA, also announced last year, is growing at a fast rate, with both companies working jointly on several projects. Further integration into Prism estimating and finished goods inventory modules are planned for 2004.
