I use Serif Pageplus X5, it's a very powerful desk top publisher.

Pageplus allows me to do pretty much whatever I want to do when designing logos and other decals for modelling purposes. It's capable of zooming up to 5000 times for pinpoint design work to the sort of detail that can't be noticed on a 1/43 scale model Rolling Eyes , still I like to know it's right! It's quite easy to scale logos/ text down to the right size you want for decals too.

Pageplus is also more user-friendly and from what I've seen, has more bolt-ons included than other desk top publishers I've seen/ used. It's also brilliant when I write my annual family newsletter, which I'll be doing soon!

Hope that is helpful. I'd be interested to know if anyone else on here uses this program too? Cheers, Steve

Adobe Illustrator. Great program for layering colours which you need to do on the ALPS printer.
