    Seeing how I'm newb to the business and just starting, really dont have the funds yet for flexi or those other higher priced brands.
    Would Corel x3 suit my needs for all vinyl cutting, and for future designs as I get more into it like printing graphics etc...?
    Or is there a better software program around the same price?

    thanks for the help,
    -Mark

    Corel

    I have used Corel since version 1 and X3 is the best yet. For the money, you get a very powerful design program. To cut vinyl, you will need a cutting program. Something like CoCut, SignTools and others. Depending on the cutter you get or have, there usually is a basic program for Corel and Illustrator. Go to www.corelunleashed.com, www.softwareoutlet.com and www.corel.com for some good information. You can download a trial version at Corel. You can download a trial version of CoCut also at their web site.

    I agree with Jack that the Corel Graphics Suite offers the most bang for your buck. I use it as my primary design program and rarely have the need for anything else.
    If you do some searching, you'll also find that you may be able to cut directly from CorelDRAW without the need of a bridge program. But, that depends on your plotter.

    Corel X3 is a superior product . . . I cut with flexi, but do a ton of design work in X3 !
