If you’ve been thinking about upgrading to QuarkXPress 10, now is the time. Quark announced today a new Creative Pro Bundle offer that applies to both upgrades and new purchases of version 10. With purchases made starting April 1, for an extra $50 you can opt to receive a bundle of tools for creatives that together are worth more than $1000. The bundle includes:
Markzware ID2Q: ID2Q provides a quick, easy and affordable method of converting files from Adobe InDesign to QuarkXPress.
Corel® AfterShot™ Pro: AfterShot Pro is photo workflow solution that combines photo management, advanced non-destructive adjustments and complete RAW processing.
Monotype FontExplorer® X Pro: An intuitive interface, a reliable architecture and a powerful feature set gives you quick access and control over your fonts.
Five professional Monotype OpenType Pro Fonts: Create stunning effects by using these fonts that offer OpenType Pro features such as swashes, true small caps and fractions and discretionary ligatures.
QuarkXPress 9: Allows you to open legacy QuarkXPress files older than version 7.

You will see that there are two bundle options. One includes QuarkXPress 10 plus the bundle of tools listed above. A second option for a slightly higher cost wraps in 12 months of free unlimited help desk support and a free upgrade, if a brand new version is released during your enrollment period. Of course you can also make purchases without either bundle for the standard prices.
