Any print designers here?
Does anyone know which software of the above would be better for designing a few leaflets and business cards in cmyk so that i can order from an online printing company?
Just to add, i have had previous experience in print design amd know all about cmyk printing processes etc, it's just that i have'nt done anything for a number of years and was just wondering which software would be best.
Many thanks.

Without more info, I'm assuming you'd be saving out as a PDF so it doesn't matter what you use, illustrator is better for vector, PS better for photos etc

I use Photoshop CS6 to design for my companies leaflets, email designs, business cards etc.... then send over PDF or JPG in CKMY to the printing company....done

Thanks for your speedy reply.
Yes, i'll just be designing a few leaflets and business cards in cmyk for ordering from an online printing company,
which will be saved and sent as PDF's, i did'nt know if one was better than the other for fonts and graphic layouts etc?

Illustrator all the way. SVG's might be better than PDF too.

Adobe InDesign for simple leaflets/posters. Easy to make templates too if you're making plenty of similar jobs too...
