QuarkXPress Customer Service Licensing

What happened to the Quark mobile licensing program?
Due to customer feedback, we have ended the Quark mobile licensing program. Instead, we now have a dual licensing program.

What is Quark License Administrator?
Quark License Administrator (QLA) is license management software that simplifies the administration of multi-seat installations of Quark products. Designed with network administrators in mind, QLA makes it easy to control user access, increase the number of licensed seats, and instantly acquire additional licenses to meet the needs of expanding workflows. See Quark License Administrator for more information.

Can I install the same copy of QuarkXPress on my computer at work and my computer at home?
A single-user license of QuarkXPress allows you to install the software on two computers for non-concurrent use. If you require a QuarkXPress license for concurrent use on more than one computer, you must purchase a copy for each computer on which you want to run QuarkXPress. Alternatively, you can purchase a site license through the Quark volume licensing program (minimum of 2 licenses of QuarkXPress, configured to run with one serial number). If your QuarkXPress software is part of our volume licensing program, Quark License Administrator (QLA) will manage your licenses.

QuarkXPress Customer Service Purchase and Replacement

My company already owns five copies of QuarkXPress, but now we need to buy another five copies. Will you give us a price break on the software?
Please have a look at our Volume Licensing Program which enables you to purchase QuarkXPress licenses and upgrades at the most cost-effective price.

How do I get a replacement QuarkXPress CD?
While a customer service representative can order replacement media, it is best to call technical support first. It is often the case that another underlying issue is the cause of the problem, and waiting to receive replacement media only increases the time you are unproductive.
