Sketch for Print Design

6 years ago from , UX Designer

Is it possible to use Sketch only for print design? I would love to get rid of my Adobe subscription, but haven't found a way. Anyone have tips?

    You should test Affinity Designer for print stuff. I tried Sketch for print but it's kind of a workaround as Sketch was not made with printing in mind.

      I haven't tried Affinity Designer. What do you use it for?

        I use it for more complex graphic elements that have to be vector based to use in UI designs I craft in Sketch and I use it basically for all print stuff (business cards, sheets, flyers etc.). I don't do that much but sometimes it comes in handy.

        Affinity Designer replaced Illustrator in my workflow.

        +1 for Affinity Designer

        Have you tried the beta for Affinity Photo?

    Definitely use Affinity Designer. It's theoretically possible to use Sketch for print material (I used to before I discovered Affinity), but lack of CMYK and measurement units - e.g. inches - made it challenging. Affinity is the way to go!

    There's this post by Peter Nowell from last summer.
