If you are a programme editor and want to create/design your own matchday programme, we highly recommend the AFFINITY suite of software ( https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/ ).
This suite of programs gives you all the tools to create your own matchday programme at a fraction of the cost of industry standard Adobe software. Our studio has been testing the software for the last 2 months and initial reports are very encouraging. Whilst it doesn’t have all the features of Adobe’s InDesign so may not be ideal for design professionals, it possesses all the features you need to produce a matchday programme.
Just to let you know, we don’t get paid by the company behind AFFINITY so we have no vested interest. However, if there is affordable software on the market to help with programme creation AND to create a print ready pdf to send to us, we’re all for it.
And it’s not just us that thinks this software could be a game changer. Take a look at this quote from one reviewer https://bigtechquestion.com/2019/06/25/review/affinity-publisher-review/
‘Affinity Publisher is astonishingly good value. It’s professional-grade software at consumer prices. If you’re dabbling in DTP for the first time, it’s the perfect starter package and the excellent video tutorials flatten the learning curve.’
You can even download a 10 day free trial from the AFFINITY website to see how you get on. https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/publisher/
Of course, if you don’t have either the time or the desire to learn how to use a new piece of software, our studio can help with the design of your programme and our in-house print facility is fully geared up to produce print runs from as low as 20 copies.
If you need ANY help with programme design or production, just give us a call on 01782 525500.
We’re only too pleased to help.
