Produce Graphics the Easy Way
Without formal graphics training, most new CorelDRAW users typically struggle to develop a basic proficiency in the program. Instead of having to learn complex production techniques, Smart Designer does most of the work. If you are new to CorelDRAW, you can immediately be successful with Smart Designer. If you are an advanced user of CorelDRAW, you can dramatically reduce both your production and design time. Smart Designer makes it possible for anyone, regardless of skill level, to produce high quality custom graphics quickly and easily. Anyone that produces graphics relies on two basic technologies: graphic design software and digital artwork (clip art, templates, fonts, etc). We combined both into a graphics system. Smart Designer Pro is the core component of the Digital Art Solutions Graphics System.

"Smart Designs was the best investment we have made yet as far as software touse for designing artwork. My wife and I have both worked with computer graphic programs for years, and the Smart Templates which come with the Smart Designs package are simple to use for almost any job (Including the Pad Printer for custom graphics). You simply browse through the templates for something similar to what your customer needs, then alter it to fit their purposes with just a few mouse clicks. It is also great for printing out several QUICK ideas in color to show your customers. And, as such, makes it a great sales tool as well. Nothing impresses customers better than seeing a proof before they buy. Trust me, it's worth the money! Hope this helps."
Ad Printers (Press-a-Print Owner)
"Being in marketing and advertising for nearly twenty years, I've done everything from working with designers on concepts to spending hours RECREATING concepts I was seeking in the first place. Artwork can be completely consuming if you don't use the reliable resources at your fingertips. I stumbled across Digital Art Solutions at an ASI show years ago and was awestruck by the simplicity of Smart Designer and the ease of having amazing custom artwork, ready to go with just a few mouse clicks. I now own multiple DAS art volumes and can't imagine how anyone in this industry works without it. You should NEVER be at the mercy of a designer!I ALWAYS go to my clients with artwork in hand and ready to place orders. Sure, they can use the guy with the best bid but good artwork ALWAYS wins over an order form and no idea of what you are buying. I've gone from providing wearables as a compliment to my other work to being a mainstream embroidery and screen printing business. If you are in business to make real money then I would encourage you to take a good hard look at Smart Designer. Not only will you be provided cutting edge artwork but I assure you that the customer support is unbelievable! I still take complete advantage of the entire team. Being a DAS "member" has its advantages. "

Upgrading software is an important investment in your business
Software companies like Corel or Microsoft spend millions of dollars improving their software and releasing new versions. Software companies are always striving to produce innovative new features that help their customers to be more productive. When you buy a software program, you always have the option of staying within your comfort level and not upgrading. The loss of productivity and inefficiencies associated with using older technology is typically much more expensive than upgrading to a new version. A wise business owner will buy an upgraded version because they want to improve their workflow, reduce the time spent in the software, and increase productivity. Please review our PDF Upgrade guide for information on upgrading.
