DITTLER FORMS PARTNERSHIP WITH ENVIRONMENTAL INK LEADER

Alliance Will Accelerate Dittler's Environmental Efforts And Provide Its
 Customers With Greater Consistency And Operational Efficiencies
 ATLANTA, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Atlanta-based printing leader Dittler Brothers Inc. has formed a strategic alliance through the year 2000 with Detroit-based Flint Ink Corporation, North America's second largest manufacturer of inks.
 The agreement concludes Dittler's six-month search for an ink partner who could accelerate the company's progress toward enginering "green" solutions to the printing process.
 Dittler Brothers, a worldwide producer of instant lottery tickets, promotional games and other printed materials, announced the agreement today.
 "Environmental issues are driving change in the graphic arts industry, and Flint Ink is the environmental ink company of the '90s," said Michael Harris, president and chief executive officer of Dittler Brothers.
 Flint Ink has 110 research and development (R&D) chemists and 12 environmental specialists, constituting the largest environmental engineering department in the industry.
 The company has developed "environmentally friendly" inks using water, soy oils and reduced solvents to lower emissions. Its advanced computer-controlled color technologies ensure unparalleled quality and consistency.
 "Our alliance with Flint Ink will enable Dittler Brothers to continue specializing in printing technologies, while allowing us immediate access to state-of-the-art environmental research," Harris said. "The benefits to our customers will be greater quality, consistency and operational efficiencies."
 Flint Ink will operate a secured in-house plant at Dittler's Oakwood facility outside Gainesville, Ga., and will increase its R&D investment in Flint Ink's Atlanta plant located near Dittler Brothers' Atlanta location.
 "Quality partnerships are mutually beneficial in maintaining a competitive edge," said Thomas Lucas, vice president of Flint Ink's Commercial & Packaging Ink Group. "Our alliance with Dittler Brothers is consistent with both our business objectives and our environmental goals."
 Founded in 1903, Dittler Brothers specializes in high-security printing and has printed more than 23 billion instant game lottery tickets for government lotteries around the world. It has printing facilities in Atlanta and Oakwood, Ga., and employs 650 workers. The company also is the nation's largest producer of promotional games, airline timetables and hotel directories, and is a leading producer of direct mail products and pressure-sensitive postage stamps for the United States Postal Service.
