DENVER - 1/5/2009 -

Quark announced today that it has teamed with Ingram Micro Inc. to offer Quark® customers discounted prices on QuarkXPress® 8 when they purchase MacSystems from participating Apple® Specialists.

When a MacSystem is purchased from an Ingram Micro Apple Specialist between now and March 31, 2009, QuarkXPress 8 will be available to the customer at discounted rates, both for full product and upgrades. Users may upgrade to QuarkXPress 8 from any version of QuarkXPress. The discounted price will vary based on the Apple Specialist and the MacSystem that is purchased.

Since its release in July 2008, QuarkXPress 8 has met with positive acclaim globally. Customers and critics alike have given the software high marks, calling out QuarkXPress 8’s:

-- New and highly intuitive user interface that requires fewer clicks to create critical design elements and saves designers 30 minutes a day*
-- Built-in Flash® functionality that allows designers to create interactive design with the QuarkXPress skills they already have – no coding required
-- Advanced tools for typography that apply to hanging characters, paragraph by paragraph precision, and more to put designers back in control
