Quark Kicks off Back-to-School Season with VisTablet

QuarkXPress 8 and VisTablet Graphics Tablet now available Together for $259

DENVER - 6/9/2009 - Today Quark announced a special product bundle with VisTablet at C2ES, the annual trade show and conference for academic resellers hosted by Douglas Stewart. From June 9, 2009 through October 30, 2009, education professionals and students can purchase QuarkXPress® 8 and the VisTablet TM Graphics Tablet for a combined price of $259. This is a savings of $670 off commercial pricing for the two products together.

Check out this video highlighting how students are using QuarkXPress 8 and VisTablet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igFsDkeqQSQ.

VisTablet is the lightest, skinniest, and most portable graphic design tablet that allows artists to explore the Internet, draw, paint, write, highlight, and do professional or home photo editing. Combined with QuarkXPress 8’s leading print, Web and Flash® design features, and advanced Bezier Pen tools, educators and students can:

-- Draw free-form objects
-- Use a natural pen stroke versus a mouse
-- Convert print layouts to Flash output with a few clicks
-- Create unique one-key commands
-- Carry both the VisTablet and QuarkXPress 8 to school, home, and work with ease

Education resellers can visit Quark at C2ES or contact Geredith Gonzalez (ggonzalez@quark.com) to learn more about the bundle and to become a Quark authorized education reseller. To promote the special bundle, Quark produced a two minute video highlighting how students can benefit from QuarkXPress 8 and VisTablet together. The video, link included above, is available for resellers to use on their own sites to promote the packaged discount.

Also, in late June, Quark will engage students directly by announcing a design contest and chance to win a ski trip to Lake Tahoe.

The Douglas Stewart Company’s 22nd annual C2ES is taking place Tuesday, June 9 through Thursday, June 11, 2009 at the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, WI.
