Marq logoThe UAB community now has access to Marq (formerly Lucidpress), an easy-to-use design and publishing platform. With Marq, you can create beautiful, brand-compliant materials, including flyers, posters, invitations, brochures, social media graphics, and more. Multiple pre-designed UAB templates are also available within the platform, ready to edit. Already have your own template designs? Marq has an integration that allows you to import your own Adobe InDesign templates.

  • Flyer Templates

  • Postcard Templates

  • Social Media Templates

Request Marq Account

Due to high demand and a finite quantity, all university Marq accounts will be evaluated every 90 days to assess use. Account holders who have not logged in within 90 days will be deactivated to allow room for new accounts. A deactivated account may be reactivated at any time by submitting another request for Marq access. Reactivated accounts never lose past templates or documents – all will be available upon reactivation.


Once you request a Marq account and log in, visit the Help Center to access training resources, including tutorials, videos, user courses, and helpful articles. Watch the below recording of UAB’s Marq training from April 2020 for an introduction of the university’s account basics.
