FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

            CONSOLIDATED GRAPHICS ANNOUNCES TWO NEW ACQUISITIONS -
            JOHN C. OTTO COMPANY, SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS AND
                SUPERIOR COLOUR GRAPHICS, KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN

HOUSTON, TEXAS -- September 8, 1997 -- Consolidated Graphics, Inc. (NYSE/CGX)
today announced the signing of letters of intent to acquire two printing
companies, John C. Otto Company, Springfield, Massachusetts and Superior Colour
Graphics, Kalamazoo, Michigan. Consolidated Graphics will acquire the two
companies in separate transactions for a combination of cash and Consolidated
Graphics' stock. Both companies will retain their names and management teams.
Other terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

     The acquisition of John C. Otto Company marks Consolidated Graphics' entry
into the New England market and bolsters its presence overall in the Northeast.
John C. Otto, in business for 118 years, is one of the country's oldest
continuously operating commercial printing companies serving the New England and
metropolitan New York markets. Jeffrey T. Spear will continue in his role as
president of the company.

     The acquisition of Superior Colour Graphics continues Consolidated
Graphics' expansion in the upper Midwest, one of the strongest printing markets
in the United States. Superior has been one of the leading commercial printing
companies in southwest Michigan for over 65 years and will continue to be led by
the management team of John Brussee, President, and Tom Brussee, Chief Operating
Officer.

     Commenting on the announcement, Joe R. Davis, Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer of Consolidated Graphics, said, "We are very pleased that these two
excellent companies have decided to join Consolidated Graphics." Davis added
that both are examples of how the combination of a strong customer service
philosophy, a focus on product quality and state-of-the-art technology can be
successful in highly competitive markets. "The addition of Superior and John C.
Otto is consistent with our strategy of acquiring successful, well-managed
companies and providing them the resources to improve upon their already strong
performance," commented Davis.
