QuarkXPress – The Best Professional Print and Digital Design Software Available

Turn your ideas into reality with QuarkXPress. It’s the graphic design software that gives you precise control over text, images, shapes, color, opacity, and it’s compatible with a broad range of file formats. No design is too simple or too complex — and no page layout software gives you more control. See the full detailed feature list here.

For more than 30 years, millions of users — from freelance designers to global organizations, marketing departments, agencies, print providers, and publishers — have used QuarkXPress to produce advertising, brochures, magazines, books, catalogs, newspapers, flipbooks, mobile apps, and more. Why? Because QuarkXPress offers the ultimate in creativity, design control, and professional print and digital output.

Design, Layout, and Professional Print Output

Built on a fast 64-bit architecture with uniquely innovative desktop publishing (DTP) features, QuarkXPress has surpassed the competition. It provides Bézier editing so you can remain in one application for page layout with high-end typography and vector drawing. With the non-destructive image editing capabilities, you can even manipulate images within the context of your design, without having to constantly switch to other image editing software.

Great design, of course, is only half of the equation. The other half is output; the final printed piece must match what’s on the screen. This is ensured in QuarkXPress with print previews, soft proofing features, comprehensive color management, and support for international color standards. QuarkXPress also includes a built-in preflighting feature (called Job Jackets) that can identify potential output issues early in the design process. When your layout is ready to go, easy-to-use presets for print-ready PDFs (PDF/X3 certified) make sure output will go without a hitch.

Integration with other Applications and Formats

No application is an island. That’s why QuarkXPress was designed from the beginning to work with a wide variety of file formats.

  • Convert PDF, Illustrator, and EPS Files to Native QuarkXPress Objects
    Say goodbye to time-consuming projects such as rebuilding logos and reconstructing PDF files sent by your clients. QuarkXPress is the first layout application to import PDF, Illustrator, and EPS files and convert them to native objects. Benefit from fully editable vector graphics, real text, and automatically extracted colors and font information. Simply copy items from other applications such as PowerPoint, Illustrator, or even InDesign and paste them into your QuarkXPress layout as Native QuarkXPress Objects, allowing you to easily complete or reuse them in QuarkXPress.
  • Import Text, Pictures, and Hyperlinks from Microsoft® Word
    Take Microsoft® Word documents with text, hyperlinks, footnotes, and pictures and place them directly into your QuarkXPress layout. Text formatting and Style Sheets can be imported and hyperlinks are automatically added to the Hyperlinks Palette.
  • PSD and AI Import
    QuarkXPress lets you import Adobe® Photoshop and Illustrator files, then hide and show layers and channels, clip to embedded paths, control layer opacity, and apply blend modes — all from right there in the QuarkXPress layout.
  • Import Tables and Charts from Microsoft Excel
    QuarkXPress lets you import data from Microsoft® Excel spreadsheets, make it beautiful, and then update the content from the Excel file without losing any formatting.

“Quark has expanded QuarkXPress 2017 with many meaningful innovations while keeping an eye on the needs of publishers. In our tests, the application ran smoothly and stably. The discreet new surface helps us focus entirely on the design.”
Deutscher Drucker, print.de

“Overall, QuarkXPress 2017 is a remarkable and worthwhile update with a lot of practical innovations, including column clipping, text shading, text outlines and layer mixing modes. With the image corrections and the improved PDF import, the program now stands out clearly from InDesign …”
Mac & i, Germany

“QuarkXPress 2017 is a real alternative for anyone who wants to create professional layouts but prefers to avoid a subscription model.”
Mac Evangelist, Offbit

What Customers Say about QuarkXPress 2017

“QuarkXPress 2017 introduces a set of image manipulation controls that effectively end the back-and-forth required between software applications. For users who are still stuck with page layout software that can’t directly manipulate images, QuarkXPress 2017 presents a compelling reason to switch.”
Martin Turner, Brandmotor UK

“I love the UI with the flat tool icons.”

“I’m using QuarkXPress for my paper and it makes great PDFs. I have the Adobe Suite as well, but keep using QuarkXPress because I find it’s more intuitive.”

“QuarkXPress is my first choice to produce all of my clients’ marketing materials. I use it every day and my clients love the creative work I produce for them.”

“I’ve been using QuarkXPress since 1992 and I don’t see myself working with another program.”

“I’ve been giving QuarkXPress a solid workout with my latest project.”

“I’m very pleased with its speed, stability, flexibility, etc. I know I’m barely harnessing its power and capacity, but even at the (outdated) level of my usage, it’s a pleasure to use. And I can’t stress enough my delight in its stability.”

“So, it’s a pleasure to tell you I think the Quark team has more than brought the application back from the brink, and I’m glad I have an alternative to Adobe that is so satisfactory to use.”

“I rarely enjoy long support calls, but this was exceptional — I throughly enjoyed your support.”

“Working with the new version of QuarkXPress is so much fun. I really like the dynamic guides that save me lots of time in creating and aligning items.”
