Positive industry endorsement by QuarkAlliance members for powerful new release

Press Release:

NEW YORK –(Quark Inc.)–May 23, 2006 announced today that the QuarkXPress 7 launch event fea­tures 12 part­ners rep­re­sent­ing com­ple­men­tary design, pub­lish­ing, and print tech­nolo­gies. The com­pa­nies that are sup­port­ing the QuarkXPress 7 launch include Canto, Creo, Em, Extensis, GLUON, GretagMacbeth, onOne Software, Meadows Publishing Solutions, Pantone, and SRDS. In addi­tion to the par­tic­i­pa­tion of these lead­ing com­pa­nies in the launch of QuarkXPress 7, almost 200 XTensions soft­ware devel­op­ers have com­mit­ted to release new soft­ware that sup­ports this pow­er­ful upgrade for design and pub­lish­ing pro­fes­sion­als.

We are pleased that so many of our top part­ners can be here today to cel­e­brate the launch of QuarkXPress 7,” said Richard Pasewark, senior vice pres­i­dent of sales and mar­ket­ing for Quark. “We val­ue these strate­gic rela­tion­ships and are encour­aged that industry-leading com­pa­nies are cre­at­ing and deliv­er­ing com­ple­men­tary hard­ware and soft­ware to this great new release of QuarkXPress. This is tru­ly a col­lab­o­ra­tive effort to pro­vide cus­tomers with the most com­plete desk­top pub­lish­ing envi­ron­ment.”

The QuarkAlliance pro­gram includes many market-leading tech­nol­o­gy com­pa­nies in the design and pub­lish­ing indus­try. By adding their sup­port to QuarkXPress 7 with inno­v­a­tive tech­nolo­gies in the areas of col­or, font man­age­ment, page automa­tion, digital-asset man­age­ment, pre­press, and ad work­flow, QuarkAlliance part­ners are help­ing QuarkXPress 7 users achieve faster cre­ative devel­op­ment and print pro­duc­tion.

We are hon­ored to be an invit­ed exhibitor at the launch of QuarkXPress 7,” said John Kriho, pres­i­dent of Meadows Publishing Solutions, an XTensions soft­ware devel­op­er for both QuarkXPress and Quark Dynamic Document Server (QuarkDDS). “As a key QuarkAlliance part­ner, we are eager to pro­mote our long-running rela­tion­ship with Quark and their cus­tomers. Our soft­ware tools com­ple­ment QuarkXPress 7 and QuarkDDS in ways that appeal to data-publishing pro­fes­sion­als in the cat­a­log, retail, and variable-data pub­lish­ing mar­kets, and this launch event is a valu­able venue to reach these seg­ments of Quark’s mar­ket.”

SRDS is pleased to work with Quark as an indus­try leader of design and pro­duc­tion resources,” said George Carens, exec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent of SRDS, a provider of media-support and plan­ning tools. “We’re always look­ing to help our users stream­line their work, and this new func­tion­al­i­ty makes the data in the Print Media Production Source instant­ly action­able.”

    Funny: “According to MacWorld in the US, QuarkXpress 7.0 sucks. Just like Mission Impossible 3, it has­n’t been worth the wait”.

    Some great InDesign (Prepress) tips on his site, though. (Don’t for­get Nick works for Adobe).
