Best program for making SVGs?

Hey guys! What’s the best program for making up your own SVG patterns? Thanks in advance!

Whatever program you have and know how to use.

SVG is one option, if you can’t output SVG use PDF for your vectors. Bitmaps can be JPG or PNG if you’re just engraving.

There is lots of discussion in the Tips and Tricks section about software, check out the pinned post at the top for a Table of Contents.


Welcome @charliemauger23 to the forum.

Can’t say that there is a best program since folks have different values and metrics to make a choice like this.

Free and powerful: Inkscape
Paid and most used: Illustrator
Not too expensive and used often: Affinity Designer
Paid, tried and true: CorelDraw.
