Notes from Chat Room:
ErichCampbell: I use Corel pretty exclusively for my sublimation.
ErichCampbell: The tie in with Wilcom made it a natural choice for me. (Longtime Wilcom Digitizer/and Deconetwork User)
ErichCampbell: I also use Corel to cut my applique materials!
RichardReilly: Thanks again for having me today.  In case my website was tough to understand here it is again….
ErichCampbell: I’ve managed to use CorelDraw to open files that were corrupt in other software even though they were native- latest versions are great.
ErichCampbell: Also, built in WhatTheFont searching- love that too.
RichardReilly: What the font is a huge time saver. We do a lot of recreating in this industry and trying to match fonts used to take hours now in many cases only minutes.
