What is the best sign design software or app to use in conjunction with Easel?
Is it Easel pro?

Vcarve desktop or pro

trick question.

that is up to personal preference. what program do you interact with well. what type of program do you use that you understand and has an interface that operates in a method that makes sense to you.

everyone is different in the way they understand and learn. so everyone has a different program that they understand better. some use Fusion 360, some use V-carve, some use Easel, some use meshcam, some use Carbide-Create. the list goes on and on.

what I would recommend trying several and see which ones you like and which one does what you need well.

here is a reference page with a list of design software that many people use. it is a very good starting point.

V carve desktop or pro. If looking for free software try Inkscape

If you make your claim solely based on “free” then why not list Carbide Create. it has V-Carve plus all the local fonts you want to install and is as easy to use as Easel. and it is a CAD software that sole purpose is to generate G-Code from the design.

Inkscape is a vector program that is not really cad software. it can be used to create vector graphics to import into cad software. but it is what it is.

Excellent idea. I just downloaded this software and only briefly looked at it. Definitely should be included
