Press Release: RR Donnelley Premedia Technologies Significantly Expands Photography Studios

R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company
(NYSE: RRD) today announced that RR Donnelley Premedia Technologies has
increased its photography studio space to meet customer demand nationwide.
The increase nearly doubles the space of the company's Studio W26 in New York
and of Omega Studios in Chicago.

"RR Donnelley is one of the leading providers of fashion and product
photography in North America," said Mary Lee Schneider, President of RR
Donnelley Premedia Technologies. "We expanded in response to demand from
customers who need high-quality photography, color services and digital asset
management tools for images that will be used in catalogs, on web sites and in
other media."
The expansion of Studio W26 in New York included an 80 percent increase in
shooting space, enabling the studio to accommodate up to five bays for fashion
photography or up to 20 bays for tabletop photography. The expansion also
included space for equipment and merchandise storage.
The expansion in Chicago more than doubled the studio space at RR
Donnelley's Omega Studios facility in suburban Elgin. After the build-out, the
facility has seven camera bays and 30,000 square feet of space, with room for
additional growth.
These expansions are in addition to the recently announced agreement with
SandBox Studios in San Francisco and the re-launch of Omega Studios in Dallas.
RR Donnelley also provides photography services in Seattle, Wash., and
Portland, Ore., through the company's wholly owned Iridio Photography studios.
