For Immediate Release
February 28, 2006

The Campbell-Logan Bindery expands into Asia

The Campbell-Logan Bindery, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has purchased an interest in the Japanese digital printing company Feng Shui Co., Ltd. Feng Shui is a Japanese subsidiary of the giant Soney Industries International, electronics firm.

Gregor Campbell, President of the Campbell-Logan Bindery said, "Through our contacts with Japanese suppliers we learned that Soney and its Feng Shui printing company wished to enter the publishing, printing and binding on demand business. They needed a partner that was highly skilled and had the knowledge to manufacture all types of book structures."

This new venture will combine Campbell-Logan's skill in binding with with Feng Shui's digital imaging technologies and Soney's electronics.

Individual book text will be sent via Soney satellite to the Campbell-Logan plant in Minneapolis for "same day" binding in either western style or Japanese stab sewn format. Finished books will be shipped via Federal Express next day service, world wide, to any customer or book store who has placed an order. In most cases a customer in North America will have their book within 24 hours and Asian or European customers within 48 hours!

Campbell expects to begin the new operation by the middle of March and will be running 24/7 by the first of April."

Campbell says "Same day turn around on binding in a variety of styles is the key to the whole operation but Soney's the bank." The new cooperative venture will bear the Soney name, "Soney On Demand Books" ( S. O. B. )
