LEADING B2B PUBLISHER UPGRADES TO QUARKXPRESS 8
LONDON, 29th November 2010 — Quark has today announced that Business-to-Business publisher Link Publishing has upgraded its production suite to QuarkXPress® 8.
Link Publishing is a leading publisher of trade titles for the printing and signage industries, and provides up-to-the-minute news, in-depth features and comment from industry experts through its two flagship titles: Print Monthly and SignLink.
Link Publishing also produces the annual Print Directory and Sign Directory, providing comprehensive listings from over 10,000 companies for every conceivable service required. Link Publishing also offers integrated and effective online marketing campaigns for customers within the industries.
Stewart Genovese, senior designer at Link Publishing comments: “From my previous experience of using QuarkXPress with other firms, I have always found it the most efficient, intuitive and precise desktop publishing programme. At Link Publishing we need our DTP to be an aid, not an obstacle, to producing the magazines: QuarkXPress 8’s added functionality offers that. Particularly when producing directories, it is becoming more and more important that we have the full power of a dedicated desktop publisher.”
“We considered some of Quark’s competitors but I feel that Quark offers the most rounded and versatile option: not only am I more familiar with it, but it has also been scooping all the top accolades this year.”
Gavin Drake Vice President of Marketing at Quark, commented: “We are pleased to have Link Publishing join a host of publishers that are taking advantage of the modern and intuitive interface of QuarkXPress 8, as well as making the most of its powerful text manipulation and editing features. The editorial staff at Link Publishing benefits from the complete functionality of QuarkXPress 8 to deliver high-quality, informative and engaging features in each issue of their magazines. Working in the same, familiar print environment of QuarkXPress 8, designers at LinkPublishing can take existing print jobs to Flash, or create new Flash projects, in minutes — no additional purchase or coding required.”
