    Corel is probably your best bet.

    You could use VinylMaster Pro the way you have mentioned or VinylMaster Xpt which has full RIP, Print & Cut tools and features.

    I agree with visual800 eBay is definetly a place to save cash! But buy the latest version of whatever you go for if you can!

    Inkscape might be an option. Free vector based program. Not sure if it will handle named spot colors, but most certainly affordable.

    I just had a quick look on eBay. There is an X4 small business edition going for 400 pounds UK. That's for the whole suite, not just draw.

    There's also Xara, which I've never used, but it's cheap.

    You can also get VinylMaster Xpt on eBay for that sort of money which is a dedicated signmaking and RIP program and does a lot more than X4 when it comes to vinyl signage and large format printing.
