FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

                 CONSOLIDATED GRAPHICS COMMENTS ON THIRD QUARTER

     HOUSTON, TEXAS - January 16, 2001 - Consolidated Graphics, Inc. (NYSE:CGX)
announced today that while total revenues for the quarter ended December 31,
2000 are anticipated to increase approximately 8% over the prior year's
comparable quarter to $171 million, operating income is expected to decline
approximately 22% to between $13.8 and $14.3 million. Net income for the quarter
is expected to be between $5.2 and $5.5 million, or between $.40 to $.42 per
diluted share. The Company attributes the shortfall to the general slowdown in
the economy and print markets in particular. The Company is also reducing its
outlook for its fourth fiscal quarter and next fiscal year.

     "In spite of record sales and earnings in October and acceptable
performance in November, the slowdown in business we experienced in December was
very disappointing. While our sales initiatives and growth strategies continue
to yield positive results, these soft market conditions have forced us to become
much more aggressive in pricing to protect market share," commented Joe R.
Davis, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The Company is taking appropriate
action to adjust to this softness in print demand that we have experienced
during these past few weeks, and we remain confident in our strategic plans for
continued growth and profit improvement. Given the current economic environment
and in light of our initiatives currently underway, we believe that our
financial results for the next few quarters will improve gradually over recent
performance."

     "Although one-third of our companies increased profitability over their
second quarter results, the softening economy reduced overall margins," stated
Charles F. White, President and Chief Operating Officer. "We are reviewing each
under-performing company and, where appropriate, will develop plans to rapidly
adjust to the current economic environment. Additionally, consolidation within
our organization may be required at certain of our companies, in a few markets,
and we are developing plans to implement those actions where necessary. In the
meantime, we will expand our strategies for national account sales, marketing of
e-commerce products and services, and management development. We remain
confident that these and other strategies already in place should improve growth
and profitability for our shareholders."
