I would like to know what kind of graphics software you would use to produce these kinds of images and designs. This is a US site and I am sure they would not be willing to discuss with me. Let me add I am not looking to reproduce their designs, I have some business ideas I am considering and this is one of them, designing custom cards, invitations etc and I just want to know the best kind of software to achieve this to save me wasting time and money on useless programs.

Honestly, they almost look like they are done in MS Publisher or the like. using rather generic clip art.

They may have been done in pagemaker.

Most professionals would use a mix of Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator but your looking at big big bucks for the industry standard software.

There are different applications for different steps of the process. Illustrator and Photoshop are used for the images and InDesign for the layups and composition. Then you would need to either purchase your own printing gear or go through a printer, consumer printers wouldn't produce very professional or quality items.

And unless you have alot of collateral your not going to be able to just walk out and but something like a Heidelberg GTO.
