ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 11, 2001 -- Continuing to drive the digital printing movement, Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) is showcasing industry-leading products, services, solutions and supplies for quick and small commercial printers and the photo imaging business at the 2001 Photo Marketing Association and PrintImage International (formerly NAQP) Show.
"We will continue to drive the New Business of Printing by providing our customers with new and innovative technology, products and solutions -all of which will enable our customers to grow new revenue streams through new applications development, marketing and sales skills," said Gina Testa, Xerox vice president and general manager, Quick and Franchise Print.

Xerox's announcements and activities at the show include:
Pixography Solution Enhancements: Xerox's Pixography Solution now includes a Web-ordering capability that allows consumers to create postcards, greeting and business cards, brochures and calendars from home, submit their orders via the Internet, and pick up finished projects from participating retail locations. Xerox plans to announce the first of these locations in the second quarter. The digital imaging center, currently a countertop unit, will now be available to retail partners as a merchandising enclosure and a stand-alone kiosk.
Document Centre and DigiPath: The Xerox Document Centre 480, also a winner of an Editor's Choice Award from Better Buys for Business, will be on display with DigiPath production software-a powerful combination that grants easy and instant access to print shop services.
