Press release from the issuing company

Carlsbad, CA - December 16, 2002 - A Lowly Apprentice Production, Inc. (ALAP), announced today the release of Imposer Pro, a major upgrade to the award-winning Imposer XTension for QuarkXPress. Imposer Pro is a more powerful version of ALAP's Imposer XTension. Imposer Pro's most notable new feature is support for 8-up printer flats as well as multi-page signatures. Imposer Pro also adds a new tiling feature allowing any size flat to be output to any size output device. Additionally, Imposer Pro adds support for split web, sheetwise and multiple unit printing.while maintaining the simplicity and ease-of-use already familiar to Imposer users. Unlike other solutions that are currently available for QuarkXPress, Imposer Pro will not rearrange or shuffle pages in a document - rather reordering is handled in the print stream yielding not only quicker but more reliable results. Imposition types include 2-Up, 4-Up, 8-Up, Work & Turn, Work & Tumble, Split Web, and Sheet Wise. You can start an imposition at any page in the document, specifying your signature size page orientation as well as control creep, bleed, and crossover trapping. Once your impositions is set-up you can save it as a style, these styles can then be reused time and time again or exported for use by other users. "Imposer Pro is a fantastic timesaving program, the added features in this "pro" version of the program are worth every penny. It is a must have for print shop environments. The fact that it does not change the order of the pages in the QuarkXPress document is a real timesaver. Imposer Pro will even allow you to work and tumble 8-up sheetwise jobs with the click of a mouse." According to Mark LaCroix, Atlas Press. Whether your production piece is a brochure or a book, Imposer Pro offers a seamless, easy-to-use solution to QuarkXPress. Imposer Pro is currently available for Apple Macintosh PowerPC System 8.6 or later and Microsoft Windows 98 or later. Imposer Pro supports QuarkXPress 3.32, 4.1 and 5.0.
