My Digital Studio and My Digital Studio Express—What’s the Difference?

We’ve had a few questions lately about the differences between our two software options: My Digital Studio and My Digital Studio Express. Either option gives you the same great digital design program. The differences between the two are in the delivery method, amount of digital content, and price. 


I could explain all the differences in great detail, but I thought that would make for a very boring blog post. So I made a quick video for you instead (because I’m nice like that). The video will help you understand the differences between the two versions so you can decide which is best for you.

In a nutshell, My Digital Studio Express is My Digital Studio software that you can download directly to your computer without having to wait for anything to be shipped to you. The program is exactly the same as the disc version of the software, but it contains less digital content. (To see what content is included in My Digital Studio Express, click here.)  The inexpensive price makes My Digital Studio Express a great product for those of you who want to try digital but aren’t ready to jump in with both feet just yet. 

If you have purchased My Digital Studio Express and fallen in love with digital designing, of course you are going to want more downloads. You can pick and choose downloads individually, or you can order the Express Booster Pack to update your program with all the content included in the disc version of the software. That’s over $500 US/$600 CAN worth of content for only $39.95 US/ $49.95 CAN!  You don’t need to purchase the Express Booster Pack if you have the DVD software version, because you already have all that wonderful artwork. 

Whichever version you choose, you are going to love designing with the My Digital Studio software. If you still have questions about the two versions, check out this flyer. It will give you a few more details about what is included in My Digital Studio and My Digital Studio Express. You can also leave a comment below and I’ll answer your questions as best I can. 

Happy designing!

Do you have to purchase MDS for $19.95 and then the Booster Pack for an additional $39.95 or can you simply purchase the booster pack? I have the original MDS and upgrade material, but I have a customer who is asking me what she should buy.

How come the content on the MDS Express is different than the Disc version -- it is making it hard to do a class on the program because I don't have the same content they do because I have the discs. Is there anyway demonstraters could get a free download of the express content to make it easier to show?? :)
