Upgrade Any Version of QuarkXPress to Version 9 for £299/€449

Quark Adds Even More Value to Customers’ Investment with Accessible Upgrade Path

Denver - 5/9/2012 - Quark announced today that all QuarkXPress® customers, including those using versions of QuarkXPress dating back to version 3, can upgrade to QuarkXPress 9 for £299/€449. QuarkXPress 9 is the newest version of QuarkXPress that, among many new design features, gives creative professionals control over publishing interactive content to the iPad. QuarkXPress 9 is also the only version of QuarkXPress officially certified for Lion, the latest version of Mac OS X.

“QuarkXPress 9 has been turning heads and winning awards for innovative functionality since its release. With a low upgrade price, all users now have the opportunity to upgrade to version 9 while getting even more value from their previous investments in QuarkXPress,” said Gavin Drake, vice president of marketing for Quark. “We release major versions of QuarkXPress about every two years and unlike many other vendors, provide free, feature-rich updates regularly within release cycles. Assuming a user upgrades on the two year cycle, an upgrade price of £299/€449 brings the cost of owning version 9 to as low as £12.50/€18.70 per month – and users own the software once they’ve upgraded, which means no long-term financial commitments.”

QuarkXPress 9 revolutionised how the individual designer, the agency, and the corporate team can use one tool to create stunning print, Web, and digital work, including eBooks with audio and video in the new ePUB3 format. With Quark App StudioTM, designers – not developers – control the process of designing for tablet devices like the iPad. Designers can even incorporate HTML5 content for additional interactivity and animation effects. A selection of iPad apps created with QuarkXPress 9 and App Studio are featured here: http://www.quark.com/Products/AppStudio/App_Showcase.aspx
