Ok, I should preface this announcement. CorelDraw being available as a standalone product is a relatively new development as they issued a press release to that effect in 2020. But hey, 2020 was a big year. A lot of other things were on our minds . . . so I figured you may have missed the news as well.

If you’re one of our loyal readers, you know we are big fans of the CorelDraw Graphics Suite, which retails for $499. While still a steal compared to competitor brands, you can now get CorelDraw and Corel Photo-Paint together (called CorelDraw Standard) for $299, and CorelDraw as a standalone (called CorelDraw Essentials) for $129!

As we’ve said in a number of our articles: if you’re a graphic designer by trade, CorelDraw is probably not your graphics editor of choice.  If you’re a small business owner without a lot of graphic design experience who is choosing to do branding in-house, CorelDraw is a great choice.  You can address all your web and print graphics needs and produce sophisticated, high-end products . . . for a fraction of the price of the typical designer preference, Adobe.  (These days, most Adobe products are only available via subscription, and their current price for their annual subscription paid monthly is $52.99 – $635.88 for the year . . . to be paid year after year for as long as you would like access to their products.  Photoshop as a standalone is $20.99 per month; totaling $251.88 per year. For some people, paying that amount for Adobe products is an ongoing invaluable investment.  For others – like us, it’s like buying a Ferrari to take your kids back and forth to school.)
