Spreading the Good Word with QuarkXPress 7

The Salvation Army Brings its Life Changing Work to Life Through the Power of QuarkXPress 7

LONDON - 4/16/2008 -

Quark Inc. announced today that the Salvation Army — a Christian church and one of the largest, most diverse providers of social services in the UK after the Government — is using QuarkXPress® to produce a range of publications and books which aim to bring its church members, ‘Salvationists’, together and spread the word about their good work. Founded in East London in 1865, it is now working in 113 countries worldwide.

In order to communicate with its 1.6 million members, The Salvation Army uses its publications and books to share its achievements and highlight the range of activities and services taking place in local communities around the world. These publications include The War Cry, which is the most popular religious weekly newspaper in the UK; Salvationist, which is the in-house weekly publication designed especially for Salvationists and friends of The Salvation Army; and All the World, which is the magazine of the international work and mission of The Salvation Army.

Industry Standard
Kevin Sims, Editor of All the World magazine explains why QuarkXPress 7 “was an obvious choice”. “It is the leading desktop publishing program on the market and as far as we’re concerned no other software package compares. So it really was an easy decision for us to upgrade. QuarkXPress 7 is the industry standard, which is extremely important to us as a global church and a charity. It gives us the flexibility to work with a wide range of suppliers and printers, which is essential in terms of sourcing the most competitive prices.”

QuarkXPress Bringing Charity to Life
“QuarkXPress 7’s flexibility adds up to a real design advantage — especially when you look at transparency control, Picture Effects and drop shadows. We can now precisely adjust transparency levels of everything from text and pictures to blends and frames. Also, with the unique Picture Effects palette we can use non-destructive image filters and adjustments to create the best possible print-ready designs right in QuarkXPress 7,” added Sims.

“A picture speaks a thousand words, and this certainly holds true in our line of work, as this is often the simplest yet most effective way of conveying our message. Through the power of QuarkXPress 7 we can bring the work of The Salvation Army to life for our readers and show them how it is changing the lives of so many people around the world,” he concluded.

“The Salvation Army does tremendous work, and people all over the world are benefiting every day from their amazing efforts," commented Matthew Wallis, Senior Vice President, Sales Europe and Africa. "We believe that helping community is extremely important and are delighted that the Salvation Army is using QuarkXPress to spread the word of its good work across the world and to bring to light to the plight of the people who desperately need support.”
