Thread: Software Question

  1. #1

    Software Question

    Does anyone know of a good software program that has or helps you create the rustic designs? I have CorelDraw but was looking for something else for sublimation to be able to produce the old worn out look.

    If you can find it anywhere, the best graphics are on the Corel 5 CD. You can also try some of the sign magazines, such as Signs of the Times or SignCraft which often have ads for graphics collections.

    I think you'll have better luck in your search if you use the term "distressed". I think you can do all you want within Corel.
