FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

              CONSOLIDATED GRAPHICS TO ACQUIRE PRIDE PRINTERS, INC.
                            OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS

     HOUSTON, TEXAS - April 2, 1998 -- Consolidated Graphics, Inc. (NYSE:CGX)
today announced the signing of a letter of intent to acquire Pride Printers,
Inc. of Boston, Massachusetts. Pride Printers is a high-quality commercial
printer serving a wide variety of agency and corporate clients. Terms of the
transaction were not disclosed.

     Pride Printers' co-founder and president, Walt Sheppard, will remain with
the company upon completion of the transaction, and co-owners Andy Arcadipane
and Chuck Loring will continue in their management and sales positions.
Regarding the announcement, Mr. Sheppard commented, "We chose to join
Consolidated Graphics because of their highly focused strategy and demonstrated
ability to support the growth plans of Pride Printers. Our customers and
employees will be pleased with the advantages Pride Printers gains from
combining our quality and service strengths with Consolidated Graphics'
operational and financial strengths."

the important Boston market, Joe R. Davis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
of Consolidated Graphics, said, "Walt Sheppard, Andy Arcadipane, Chuck Loring
and the other skilled employees of Pride Printers have a well-deserved
reputation for providing superior customer service and quality printing. We are
pleased to have them joining our group of commercial printing companies,
