Stay up-to-date with the QuarkXPress upgrade plan


On 9 January 2018, Quark Software announced a new QuarkXPress special offer running from January 1 to February 28, 2018. Anyone who would like to stay current on QuarkXPress – and hasn’t yet purchased QuarkXPress 2017 – now has the chance to enroll in the 12-month QuarkXPress upgrade plan for free. Customers will save $169 with the new offer.

With every purchase of QuarkXPress 2017, users will receive free enrollment in the 12-month QuarkXPress upgrade plan, which provides free QuarkXPress upgrades for 12 months following enrollment. The Upgrade Plan provides the benefit of a subscription without locking users into a yearly contract. Renewing the upgrade plan at the end of 12 months is completely optional and not automatic. If designers decide not to renew, they simply continue to use their copy of QuarkXPress.

More benefits
With active enrollment in the QuarkXPress upgrade plan, customers automatically receive each release of QuarkXPress, allowing them to schedule and plan for future upgrade costs. The yearly cost to enroll in the 12-Month upgrade Plan is typically $169 and includes free upgrades – that is no charge for upgrades to all licenses enrolled and current in the program at the time of the next upgrade release. Additional benefits include priority notification and access to QuarkXPress updates via download; receive priority notification and access to QuarkXPress updates via download; access to concurrent usage of up to three versions of QuarkXPress (currently 2017, 2016 and 2015) to ease migration planning and free access to free site consolidation and de-consolidation.

Designers always own their QuarkXPress licenses even if the upgrade plan is not renewed – no contract required.

Customers who purchase QuarkXPress 2017 between 1 January and 28 February 2018 need to complete the online redemption form. Within three business days of completing the redemption form they will receive their 12-Month QuarkXPress Upgrade Plan Welcome Letter. This letter will contain information about benefits, enrolment dates, and the contact information of a personal QuarkXPress representative.

This offer is valid from January 1, 2018 through February 28, 2018 to customers who purchase QuarkXPress 2017 upgrades, full product, government, and site licenses. Education license purchases, non-profit and not-for-resale licenses are excluded from this offer.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
