For the third quarter of 2010, total revenue was $12.4 million compared with $12.6 million in 2009, a decrease of 1.6%. The custom folding carton product line sales were $9.3 million compared with $9.4 million in the third quarter of 2009. The 1.7% decrease was mainly due to decreased business from several existing customers offset partially by increased business from several large existing customers and increased waste sales due to improved market conditions. Sales of the Company s stock packaging product line were $2.3 million in third quarter of 2010, up slightly compared to $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2009. Personalized print sales for the third quarter of 2010 were $0.8 million, down 5.1% from the third quarter of 2009 due to continued soft market conditions.

For the first nine months of 2010, total revenue was $35.9 million, compared to $36.1 million in the first nine months of 2009, a decrease of 0.6%. The custom folding cartons product line sales were $27.0 million compared with $25.9 million in 2009. The increase of 4.2% was mainly due to increased business from several large existing customers and increased waste sales due to improved market conditions, offset partially by decreased business from several large existing customers. Sales of the Company s stock packaging product line were $6.3 million, compared with $5.9 million in the prior year, an increase of 6.2% mainly due to improved general business conditions. Personalized print sales for the first nine months of 2010 were $2.3 million, a decrease of 4.8% compared to the in the same period of 2009, primarily due to continued soft market conditions. There were no specialty print and direct mail sales in the first nine months of 2010 and the fourth quarter of 2009 due to the product line rationalization that took place at the end of the second quarter of 2009. Specialty print and direct mail sales were $1.5 million in the first six months of 2009. There were no specialty print and direct mail sales in the third quarter of 2009.

Selling, general, and administrative (“SG&A”) costs decreased 7.4% to $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2010 from $1.8 million during the same period in the prior year. This improvement was driven primarily by lower labor costs and commission expense, offset partially by increased professional service fees and stock option expense. Also included in prior year operating expense was a $0.4 million positive adjustment that was associated with the write-down of impaired assets that occurred in the second quarter of 2009.

SG&A costs decreased 7.5% to $5.4 million in the first nine months of 2010 from $5.8 million during the same period in the prior year. This decrease was driven primarily by lower labor costs, slightly offset by higher stock option expense. Included in the first nine months of 2009 SG&A, was $65 thousand in workforce reduction costs that were the result of the Company's rationalization of the specialty print and direct mail product lines in the second quarter of 2009. Also included in prior year operating expense was $1.8 million that was associated with the write-down of impaired assets in the second quarter of 2009. This impairment resulted from the Company's rationalization of the specialty print and direct mail product line in the second quarter of 2009 and the write-down of its Blasdell, NY facility to fair market value based on expected selling prices net of costs to sell.

The net income for the first nine months of 2010 was $1.1 million or $0.30 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $3.2 million, or $0.95 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2009. This net income/loss was due the fluctuations discussed above.

Capital expenditures, driven primarily by productivity improvements and system related investments, for the first nine months of 2010 were $1.2 million compared with $0.8 million in the first nine months of 2009. Depreciation and amortization for the first nine months of 2010 was $2.1 million compared with $2.5 million in the same period last year.
