  Tempt™ In-Store Productions Invests in Platform and Expands Capabilities to
  Deliver More Value for Retailers

Tempt strengthens product and service offerings with two new large-format
digital UV presses and expanded operations

Business Wire

SUSSEX, Wis. -- August 9, 2013

To keep pace with double-digit growth and continue its commitment to deliver
the best value in the industry, Tempt In-Store Productions, a Quad/Graphics
company (NYSE:QUAD), is enhancing its large-format digital press platform,
already one of the most powerful and advanced in North America, and expanding
its operations.

“Strategically investing in our in-store platform now makes perfect business
sense for the future of Tempt and its growing customer base,” said Joel
Quadracci, Quad/Graphics Chairman, President & CEO. “This is an exciting time
for Tempt because the sizeable opportunities that exist in the market for
in-store signage and point-of-purchase materials. The investments in new
equipment and expanded facilities take our in-store platform to the next
level, enabling us to become even faster and more efficient, adding value for
our clients across the country.”

Tempt is adding a new Inca S50i large-format digital UV flatbed press at its
New Berlin, Wis., facility, and a new Inca Q40i large-format digital UV
flatbed device to its Southern California operations.

The Inca S50i is extremely fast, capable of producing up to 172 large-format
prints per hour. It also delivers graphics up to 63 inches by 123 inches in
size, even larger than Tempt’s Inca S70 presses can produce, according to Mike
Draver, President of Tempt In-Store Productions.

“The new S50i greatly reinforces our large-format digital UV printing
horsepower and offers new options for our retail and brand clients to more
efficiently and cost-effectively provide a colorful, customized and satisfying
visual experience for their customers,” Draver said. “The new press is a
perfect example of Tempt’s passion and commitment to providing our customers
with a one-stop resource for innovative in-store marketing solutions. At Tempt
we make the visually impossible possible.”

Tempt’s West Coast operation will relocate in September from its present
facility in Irvine, Calif., to a building more than twice the size in
Huntington Beach, Calif., where the new Inca Q40i will be installed. “We are
excited about the opportunities in Southern California created as a result of
Quad/Graphics’ acquisition of Vertis, and the strong potential for sales
growth in this market,” Draver said. “While the Irvine operation is
well-equipped with multiple large-format digital presses and related
capabilities, the bottom line is we see an even greater need to support our
current and future customers on the West Coast. This newly created facility,
combined with the exceptional quality and speed of the Q40i, will enhance our
ability to offer a wider array of options for our luxury retail, brand and
entertainment customers.”

In addition to the new equipment and a larger West Coast facility, Tempt
recently doubled the space devoted to finishing and kit-packing in the
Midwest, relocating a portion of its finishing, assembly, kitting and
fulfillment operations from its plant in New Berlin, Wis., opened in 2011, to
a new facility nearby. “The benefit of the relocation for our customers is we
more than double the space we have for our mounting, die-cutting, display
construction and kitting operations in the Midwest to support our regional,
national and multinational clients,” Draver said.

conditions; the impact of electronic media and similar technological changes
including digital substitution by consumers; the impact of changing future
economic conditions; the failure to renew long-term contracts with clients on
favorable terms or at all; the failure of clients to perform under long-term
contracts due to financial or other reasons or due to client consolidation;
