Color Imaging's Second Quarter 2001 Revenue Rises 39 Percent; Six Month Operating Income Increases 109 Percent

ATLANTA, Aug. 13, 2001 (PRIMEZONE) -- Color Imaging, Inc.'s (OTCBB:CIMG) second quarter sales increased to more than $8 million, or 39 percent over the same quarter in FY2000, while six month sales were up by 42 percent over the first half of FY2000 to $13.6 million, continuing the Company's strong revenue growth trend of 89 percent for FY2000, as announced April 26, 2001 in their Form 10QSB filing. Operating income for six months ending June 30, 2001 rose 109 percent to $290,000.

The Company also disclosed in its Form 10QSB filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it intends to beta test its new SOLUTION Series of printing systems in the 4th quarter of 2001 and begin selling them during 2002. The new SOLUTION Series will give the commercial printer the ability to print variable data in color at speeds exceeding 250 feet-per-minute, as an alternative product for offset high-speed printing applications. In addition, the color system, the DIGITALCOLORPRESS ("DCP") will be offered to production printing sites worldwide and as an upgrade alternative to the hundreds of current users of Delphax Printing System's electron beam imaging technology.

Color Imaging develops and manufactures products used in electronic printing, analog and digital copiers and high-speed digital variable data printing in real-time directly on Web presses. Products include formulations for black text and specialty Toners, including color and magnetic ink characters which are used on checks and other financial documents. For the commercial printer, Color Imaging provides a complete printing system that, when installed directly on an offset printing press, expands printing capabilities to include any variable data together with bar codes, MICR, and unlimited alphanumeric sequencing. These functions for the Web press address the needs of commercial printers that require digital processing and printing of variable data at extremely high speeds.
