Graphic software question - What to buy???

Postby Shecki » Wed Nov 11, 2009 9:37 am

I posted this in the "newbie" forum as well, but maybe someone in here that doesn't wander into there too often can offer some advice....

My brother and I are just breaking into the screen printing buisness and are looking for some opinions on software. First, we have zero graphic design whatever program we end up purchasing, we will be taking any online courses we can find to try and learn them as well as we can. We've kind of narrowed it down to two options: A) Adobe's CS4 Design Studio (so that we'll have both vector and raster/bitmap programs with PS and Illustrator included) or the much less expensive option B) CorelDraw X4? What are some of your opinions of the two, keeping in mind...we'll need to learn either of these programs anyway? we need both PS and Illustrator, or can design, layering, and color seperation all be done on one or the other? We will be running these programs on PC ad well (as opposed to mac....for now).

This hands down has seemed like the most difficult hurdle to get over thus any insightful input, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a ton!

You will inevitably want both a vector (i.e. illustrator) and raster (i.e. photoshop) design programs.

For many people it's a matter of preference. For your purposes I imagine both would be more than sufficient.
Honestly - your first step would be to download the free trials and play around. I'm sure they both come with 30 day free trials. There's many tutorials on the internet that you can do to get a feel for the interfaces of each and see if you prefer one software suite over another.
