Press release from the issuing company
March 20, 2002 -- Skinny Technologies has concluded a licensing agreement with ClickHouse.com Online Inc. to utilize SkinnyPDF files as part of their e-marketing program. ClickHouse clients have coupons, newsletters and high quality brochures that will be reduced in size for e-mail distribution using the SkinnyScript technology. SkinnyPDF files can also be embedded within Flash and XML files just like any other PDF file.
