Quark has announced special volume licensing for K-12 schools that
allows educators to bring QuarkXPress 8 into their classrooms for
discounted prices. As a part of the volume licensing program, K-12
schools can purchase 250 seats of QuarkXPress 8 for less than
US$1,500 or 500 seats of QuarkXPress 8 for less than $2,500.
QuarkXPress is graphic design and layout software that offers
students the ability to create print, Web, and Flash output using a
single software application. In addition to discounted pricing,
Quark’s volume pricing program for K-12 schools ties all of the
QuarkXPress 8 seats purchased by a school to one serial number,
easing the management of many licenses.
School districts can also save expenses by signing up for a one- or
three-year maintenance plan that provides automatic upgrades to new
releases of QuarkXPress throughout their enrollment in the program.
