As I was originally a printer I have been CorelDraw user from the first time I used CorelDraw 2. Then I went into the sign business after CorelDraw 11 came out.
I have tried every known software to be able to cut from Corel and eventually stumbled on to SignTools3. Compared to all the rest I did try where your drawing is imported in to it or other stand alone sign software which is not only expensive but complicated, Signtools3 was the easiest, quickest and best I have ever used.So as a loyal SignTools user I upgraded to SignTools4 and what a difference. I thought SignTools3 was good but SignTools4 is fantastic. Well done for a brilliant way of cutting which I would highly recommend and made my business a cut above my competitors.
