ARC Upgrades Sub-Hub(TM) to Provide Greater Control Over Bid Communication Process

WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwire - December 4, 2009) - American Reprographics Company (NYSE: ARP), the nation's leading provider of reprographics services and technology, today announced the release of the next generation of Sub-Hub, the Company's online bid communication software. Sub-Hub streamlines the process of obtaining costs for proposed building projects from subcontractors and suppliers. The application provides a secure, online portal to access digital communication tools, a robust contact management system, and tools for viewing and ordering construction plans over the web.

The Company stated that since the introduction of Sub-Hub, customers have requested more control over their projects as their workflow has become more reliant on digital technology. The upgrade to Sub-Hub announced today allows users to create projects with a more flexible workflow, saves more time in project administration, and allows more control over individual bid projects.

"Having the ability to create and upload our own project documents in Sub-Hub -- especially addenda -- is a huge time saver in our bidding process," said Monte Griffin, Estimator for Wells Construction, Inc., a Northern California-based general contractor specializing in construction and project management.

Sub-Hub requires no investment in additional hardware or dedicated infrastructure to run. Bid Communications and digital file uploads occur entirely over a secure internet connection and are updated within minutes of data entry.
