NEW YORK: Busy PR pros who don’t have time to run to the copy

center to prepare documents can now produce them from their desktops by

using Exact Print Software, a product launched earlier this month by

start-up Mimeo.com.



The software, which can be downloaded free of charge from the Mimeo.com

Web site, allows users to view, print, bind and FedEx documents by

clicking ’print to Mimeo’ from the print menu. Documents are then routed

to the company’s digital printing facility in Memphis.



’We want to change the industry in the same way that Adobe or MP3

changed the industry,’ said Mimeo.com co-founder and CEO Jeff Stewart.

’I believe this is the way people will produce documents five years from

now.’



Stewart said the software has a wide range of uses for the PR

community.



’This is a big chance to save so much time,’ said Stewart. ’PR pros can

turn their attention to value-added things, like pitching and gathering

information, instead of spending time at the copy machine or local copy

center.’



He added that the software would be useful to PR pros traveling on

business who don’t have time to go back to the office to print

documents, such as briefing books or presentations, and for small

agencies without administrative support.



Documents can be printed in color or black and white, and users can

choose from several paper qualities and binding options. Orders placed

before 10 p.m. EST can be delivered anywhere in the US via FedEx for the

following day.



Stewart claims that Mimeo.com’s printing prices are approximately the

same as those of most local copy shops, with shipping costs determined

by the size of the order and its destination.



Mimeo.com also announced last week that the service will be available in

Canada, and is currently looking at the possibility of expanding

facilities to Europe and the Pacific Rim.
