Corel or AI are best, Corel is slightly cheaper and has the whole suite.
Try Inkscape and GIMP which are free and open source for starters.

The operator is the most important thing, be it Mac, PC or Ai or Corel, if the guy doesn't know how to use them they're just expensive ways of filling a hard drive.
I prefer Illy but like Corel too.

Corel or AI, these are the two main programs in use. Each has it's pluses and minuses along with their own following. AI users will swear by Illy and condemn Corel and vice versa.

Bottom line is use what you are comfortable with, Corel is IMO more user friendly than AI. Each will do fantastic artwork based on the ability of the artist. Take a top of the line artist in each and I seriously doubt that ANYONE would be able to tell if the work was done with AI or Corel!!

I use Corel as it was very user friendly to learn in as I had NO experience when I got thrown into the designing part of our business (our graphic designer moved out of state)

I very much agree with the last post, use what YOU are comfortable with; it will make your life easier and your business more productive!

Good Luck!
