GBC® And Canon Partner To Enhance Canon's Award-Winning Line Of Multifunction Devices

Northbrook, IL, February, 2006-- GBC, an ACCO Brands company (NYC: ABD) and market leader in the 
manufacturing and distribution of laminating and binding products, and Canon U.S.A., Inc., the nation's market 
share brand leader in black-and-white and color copier solutions*, have announced the launch of Canon’s 
Professional Puncher-A1, a new in-line punching solution that is compatible with Canon’s new imageRUNNER® 
7105, 7095, 7095 Printer, and 7086 Digital Imaging Systems.  Developed in partnership with GBC, the Canon 
Professional Puncher-A1 is a fully-integrated punching solution with interchangeable die sets for six popular 
binding styles: CombBind®, ColorCoil, WireBind, three-ring, VeloBind®, and ProClick®.

Designed to streamline the document production process, the Canon Professional Puncher-A1 produces 
perfectly punched output at the rated system speed of the printer. The selected printers run at speeds of 
105ppm, 95ppm, and 86ppm (based on letter-sized paper).  A key feature of the Professional Puncher-A1 is 
easy job setup for in-line punching in both walk-up environments from the product’s graphical user interface 
and networked computers through Canon’s intuitively-designed print drivers. "In this market segment, this is 
the only in-line punching solution that can keep pace with the system and produce ready-to-bind documents 
without manual activation," says Gideon Schlessinger, Vice President of Marketing/Product Technology and 
Development, for GBC. "This solution creates substantial value by making the entire process much more 
efficient, allowing one operator to manage a much faster and automated system from printing to creation of 
bind-ready document sets."

"As Canon continues to build its presence in the mid-to-higher-end digital production space, advanced in-line 
finishing capabilities will be critical to our success," said Sam Yoshida, director and general manager, Corporate 
Systems Division, Canon U.S.A.  "Through our partnership with GBC, we feel that users will be able to better 
leverage Canon’s new imageRUNNER devices in true digital production environments."
