Axium Technologies Announces General Availability of "Tagger Trap" Graffiti Detection System

PASADENA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 29, 2007 -- Axium Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AXGI) is pleased to announce that its "Tagger Trap" Graffiti Detection Product is now ready for general distribution. During the past six months the product has been in pilot implementation at several municipal police department locations around the Los Angeles area. The success of these locations and the demand for this type of product in the market has prompted Axium to begin offering the product for wider distribution.

The Company's CEO, Mr. WonSoo Chung, stated that, "We are very pleased with the stability and the capability of this initial release of the product and have made the decision to begin selling the product via our network of value-added resellers. The graffiti clean-up cost within the domestic US alone now exceeds $1.0 billion annually. Many municipal governments and businesses are including a budget for Graffiti detection, not just clean-up. Our product provides Axium with a leading position in the market to capture many of these planned expenditures."

The product is unique in its capabilities to detect tagger activity, record the event and notify authorities. Axium is currently working with their distributors to complete proposals, both domestically and internationally.
