Austell, GA, 30106-3227

Press release date: February 16, 2009

ATLANTA, Feb. 16 /-- Caraustar Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSAR), a recycled packaging company and one of North America's largest integrated manufacturers of converted recycled paperboard, today announced the introduction of Snap-Right, a new addition to its Protect-A-Board(TM) and Protect-A-Wrap(TM) edge protector product lines. The Snap-Right product, primarily for use with POP (point-of-purchase) or display-ready packaging, has value-added characteristics that include perforation at designated intervals for customer ease-of-use and access to palletized products.

Snap-Right is manufactured in two distinct product types, the first of which is perforated every 3, 6, 9 or 12 inches and allows the "frame" of the package to be lowered by "snapping" off pieces of the edge protector as the consumer removes products. The second Snap-Right option is for customers that use multiple lengths of Protect-A-Board and the perforations are made at precise intervals allowing the user to purchase only one size with perforations at the required lengths.

Caraustar's Protect-A-Board and Protect-A-Wrap product lines are manufactured at five locations in the United States and are stocked at 14 regional warehouses strategically located across the country. These products are manufactured using 100% recycled paperboard and exemplify Caraustar's commitment to preserving the environment.
