  1. Very cool giveaway! I just started using Paint Shop Pro, and I like it a lot — great alternative to Photoshop at a competitive price. I’m really happy with PSP for raster stuff, but it would be great to have a top-notch vector program, too.

    For example, I help out with my son’s Boy Scout Troop (web site, etc.). We’ve been trying to get some graphics stuff done for the trailer we use to haul our equipment, and we want to make a banner that we can hang out when we’re out volunteering at an event. Stuff like this is really best done w/ vector art because it survives well when it’s enlarged, where raster stuff gets pixelated. If I had CorelDRAW, I’m sure I’d be able to whip up some sharp graphics for the Troop.

  2. Congratulations on the good news about your daughter. As a mom that had all five of her children in the hospital at birth, I know the relief when things are “done”.

    Also, I’d LOVE to win this suite. Thanks for the opportunity!

  3. Forgot to post why. I’d love this because it would help me with my graphics development – for my clients and myself. Thanks!

    What amazing and wonderful news about you daughter. I started a new career path in 1999 as a graphic artist. We used Corel Draw exclusively and I loved it and found it very easy to pick up, even without any formal training. That is something I’ve never been able to do with Photoshop. Anyway, I have since progressed thru my ‘starving artist’ phase and gotten a more steady job but still love the graphic arts. I miss the drive to be creative every day and really push myself to learn new things, however, have greatly fallen behind the curve now. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of a package dear to my heart.

  5. My wife and I are getting a small business off the ground helping daycare centers in the Albuquerque area to offer NM certified (with meaningful and tangible, quality-based) pre-kindergarten programs. We are using MS Publisher(r) for our printed materials, but find that, although it is a nice tool, the limitations in producing publishable/printer ready proofs are significant. This is a mom-and-pop business and the $400 to get a nicer development program is simply not in our humble budget yet. If I understand correctly, Corel will also help me in getting a pro-looking web site designed, which is on my to-do list. Please forward my most sincere thanks to Ms. Manuel for providing the software for you to offer us as a giveaway! Have a safe and pleasant day and thank YOU for all of your great work–and congratulations to you and your daughter on her blessed recovery. PLM

  6. Hey Vera,

    Glad to hear about your beautiful daughter woot! What a tremendous blessing, eh? 😉

    I would love to have this graphic package for blogging as well as creating graphics for my affiliate management customers. This package would definitely provide a more professional way to create jazzy designs 😉

    Thanks for the contest! Best wishes.

    I have been using Paint Shop Pro when it was Jasac….for about 5 years. I am self-taught and it has taken me a little time to master this application. I am a great-grandmother 73 yrs old and I do a newsletter for our church youth group. I love adding things that I make in PSPX. I also do digital scrapping and have many of my items from the very 1st beginner’s scraps up to now. I love making mini-scrapbooks for the girls in my group at church and for my friends and granddaughters.

    I would LOVE to be able to have the Corel Draw so maybe I can do more.
    Thanks for all your wonder time you spend bringing us new items.

  8. M. Chappell says

    That is wonderful news about your daughter! I love scrapbooking, photography, & graphic arts! I work full time and have two kids. I coach U6 girls soccer and I’m a girl scout leader. I’ve been wanting to start my own business so I can be at home more with my kids during their younger years! Having Corel Draw would help me get closer to that goal and push me to take that next step! Thanks for the opportunity!

  9. You can never have too much inspiration and source materials. Sounds like an out standing collection of source materials.

  10. S. Smith says

    Blessings to you and your family about your daughter.
    I would be thrilled to win this as it is something I could never afford to buy. I love designing and doing special things for my family and friends and this would be great to have.

  11. M.Watson says

    Short and Sweet. It would help me in my new business. Funds are limited and I would not be able to afford it. Thanks for the chance. Mary

  12. I’d love the chance to win this great product! I plan to start a VA business in the near future and this product would be indispensable. I’m sure we could use it in our homeschooling endeavors too!

    Thanks for a great giveaway 🙂

  13. Richard Bennett says

    Good morning,

    I would love to have this.

    I am on a disability pension and am doing a few websites for non-profit organizations that have even less money than I do. This would help tremendously!

    Thanks for a super offer!


  14. It’s Monday, contest end day… can I squeeze in by the hair of my chinny chin chin? I’ve been a WAH entrepreneur for nearly 10 decades. I try like the dickens to do much of my own graphics work. But without the proper tools, it sometimes just looks cheezy. How professional can you look really using Word and Publisher? I typically end up paying someone to do graphics work for me. As a single parent who is conscience of every expenditure, it would be fantastic to have this package so that I could continue to work my business in the professional light it deserves to be and I could actually cut back on expenses related to outsourcing this topic. Thanks for offering such a great giveaway!

  15. WOW! I’m so delighted that I WON!!! I’ve emailed you Vera. Thanks so much for the opportunity – this is WAY kewl! 😉

  16. Congrats Regina! I got your email and will respond now. 🙂
