Quark has announced it will allow eligible printers to join its Quark output provider program at no cost. This news comes just after Adobe recently ceased supporting its own printer partnership program. The QuarkAlliance program normally costs US$495 and includes a copy of QuarkXPress 8.
“At a time when some in our industry are moving away from print, Quark is aggressively maintaining its investment in this community,” said Cyndie Shaffstall, director of QuarkAlliance. “There is a significant opportunity for printers to take advantage of the booming Web-to-print industry, as well as traditional revenue streams. I invite output providers to join one of our programs right now at no cost.”
Adobe Service Network members can join QuarkAlliance for one year at no cost and existing QuarkAlliance members also get a complimentary one year membership renewal.
Additionally, U.S. output providers are eligible for a free enrollment in Quark’s “Promote Output Provider Program.” The program extends benefits such as a listing in Quark Promote printer search feature, inclusion on Bing map locator, rights to use Quark Promote authorized partner logo and inclusion in appropriate Quark marketing activities.
