Corel Draw

Posted on Sun, 15 Feb 2004 at 2:31



Is Corel Draw considered the industry standard for vector based programs?

If so, what is the latest and greatest version I should pick up for my start up silk screen business?

I already have Adobe 7.0, so should I get Adobe illustrator instead or is Corel the way the go no matter what?

Someone please offer me some guidence before I take the plunge......want to make sure I get it right the first time

Thank you.

I have been in the design business for a little over 6 years, not a long time compared to some, in those years I have never none Corel to be an industry standard. I would stick with Adobe Illustrator.

Illustrator is considered the industry standard in vector software for the offset industry (MAC), I am not sure with the screen industry. I use Illustrator on a MAC and go straight to film from there.

I would venture that Corel may be more popular in screening because of cost. PC's are cheaper than MAC's and Corel is cheaper than Illustrator.

I have also had some issues in outputting art from Corel, but have never had any from Illustrator.

As a side note, some film houses will not accept Corel files.

Overall I would rate Illustrator as the stronger program, but Corel has some nice features. Personally I run both on my MAC.

About me: I screen print and do film for one of the worlds largest High-end Cosmetics display companies.
