iPrint Unveils iKiosk System at ON DEMAND Print Show
(PR Newswire; 05/06/98)

   ON DEMAND EXPO, NEW YORK, May 6 /PRNewswire/   Royal P. Farros, CEO of 
 iPrint, inc., the leading Internet print shop, delivered the keynote address 
 today at the ON DEMAND Digital Printing and Publishing Expo.  The keynote 
 signaled the launch of iPrint's new iKiosk System   or "Internet Kiosk"   a 
 self-service, fully-automated electronic commerce environment for print 
 brokers, ad specialty brokers, and commercial and quick printers.

     Designed specifically for the printing industry by print and software 
 experts, the iKiosk System is a complete turnkey solution for printers that 
 includes hardware, fast-Internet hosting, 24/7 support, security, maintenance, 
 Extranet-enabled reporting and customer support services.  Using an iKiosk 
 System, print-oriented businesses can offer their customers direct access to 
 creating, proofing and ordering professionally-printed products right over the 

     iKiosk availability is immediate and, in most instances, an iKiosk-enabled 
 website can go "live" virtually overnight.

     "The Internet is having a profound effect on the printing industry," 
 commented Farros in his keynote remarks.  "Those that embrace this technology 
 will thrive.  Our new iKiosk System is designed to get print-oriented 
 businesses online asap, allowing our strategic partners to take full advantage 
 of the booming Internet opportunity and giving them a crucial   and immediate   
 competitive edge."

     The iKiosk System automates not only the creation process, but the back- 
 end printing process as well.  An iKiosk System virtually eliminates the 
 prepress process.  And because the customer creates and proofs right onscreen, 
 reprint-due-to-error rates drop dramatically, which contributes to significant 
 cost savings and substantially increased customer satisfaction.

     "The Internet audience is doubling every 100 days," added Farros. "The main 
 problem for the printing industry isn't to create a website   anyone can do 
 that.  The difficult part is to create a web presence that can automate and 
 scale without getting overwhelmed and overrun.  Our iKiosk solution is based on 
 time-proven experience and award-winning technology   really, the only industry-
 strength offering available."

     Early strategic partnerships underway include a range of high-profile 
 organizations, from OfficeMax, the country's largest office products superstore 
 operator, to Cendant Corporation (formerly CUC International), the nation's 
 leading franchisor of hotels and rental car agencies, to NASA, Rockwell 
 International, and even the Internal Revenue Service.
