PRESSTEK ANNOUNCES MANAGEMENT CHANGE

 HUDSON, N.H., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Presstek, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRST) today announced that James L. Bast, president, chief executive officer and a director of the company has resigned his positions with Presstek. Chairman Robert Howard stated, "While Mr. Bast's senior leadership will be missed, early recognition of differences in management styles led to a mutual agreement with Mr. Bast for him to step aside at this time."
 Howard indicated that the current management team at Presstek is well equipped to move the company forward until such time that a new president is appointed.
 Presstek, Inc. has developed and patented a proprietary filmless direct imaging technology for the printing industry. The revolutionary PEARL laser technology is capable of producing printed full-color materials of a quality that industry experts consider comparable to printing industry standards. The PEARL direct imaging technology and system uses proprietary laser diodes and unique optics to etch images directly onto Presstek's printing plates which can be used by presses of any make, size or type for high resolution print quality in shorter time and at lower cost than competitive processes. Presstek is also engaged in the development of additional products and applications that incorporate the use of its proprietary technologies, including stand- alone platemakers used for off-line imaging of printing plates.
