As go-logowear mentioned it's ALL about ease of use and making the customer feel like you have everything under control. Which digitizing software do you currently use? Some of the punching programs will allow imports from Corel Draw as well. Almost any vector program will export to an adobe AI format so if you didn't have a ton of cash but still wanted the import feature you could "get by" with a cheaper program in the interim. I too would highly suggest a suite of programs when you can afford it. It will just make things easier across the board.ptshirts said:What is most recommended in an embroidery shop Illustrator or Photoshop?
Wow - that's an awfully broad judgement you're making there. Good digitizers will digitize off of anything that the client supplies, and if they're smart digitizers as well, they'll take advantage of all the advantages that having a vector file on hand gives in producing a quality design that is accurate to the client's design.most digitizers use raster images. Most digitizing software will accept a dxf file (vector) yet good digitizers just digitize off a jpeg or bitmap.
