DYMO/Mimio Helps Schools Stretch Title I ARRA Funds with Back-To-School Savings on Award-Winning MimioClassroom Product Suite

Now through Sept.30, Schools Can Use Federal Funds Toward MimioClassroom Product Purchases

Cambridge, Mass. – September 1, 2011 - DYMO/Mimio is helping schools maximize their
budget dollars and achieve their technology goals as they head back to school this fall. With only
one month remaining for schools to use their federal Title I American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds before the September 30 deadline, schools can apply the
federal monies toward various savings packages for the award-winning MimioClassroom™
product suite.

As technology directors are quickly working to purchase materials, supplies and instructional
hardware and software tools, they now have the option of spending remaining Title I ARRA funds
on the MimioClassroom Global Purchase Program, a savings program designed to stretch
precious school technology budgets.

Offering a range of packages to accommodate varying technology needs and budgets,
DYMO/Mimio’s Global Purchase Program enables schools to equip more classrooms with the
award-winning MimioClassroom product suite. All of the products are backed by DYMO/Mimio’s
online and in-person training programs, industry-standard-setting content that is aligned to state
and federal standards and available on the MimioConnect web site, free MimioStudio software
updates and generous product warranties.

In addition to the MimioClassroom Global Purchase Program, DYMO/Mimio is offering a Buy 4
Get 1 Free MimioTeach system program to quickly and easily equip more classrooms with just
the MimioTeach system.

“Our company mission is to enable educators to simply teach and engage students creatively
through teacher-tailored and student-centric hardware, software and research-based content,”
says Bill Brinkman, director of sales, DYMO/Mimio. “By offering schools a chance to combine the
federal Title I ARRA funds with the great savings of our savings packages, we can help even
more teachers and students through the benefits of the MimioClassroom suite.”
