You don’t have to use Illustrator.  You can use something as simple as Word.  I used my normal photo editing software.

The only thing I would say is if you are printing then you need to be aware of the image dpi. Illustrator is great for print work as it uses vectors which can be modified and resized without losing quality.  So it kinda depends on the image, I started ours in photoshop, but Mr. D played around with the vectors and resized it in illustrator to have a sharper print quality.

How all that works? I’m not 100% sure.  I wouldn’t buy illustrator just yet (if ever, woah expensive!) but if you find yourself running into the same problem I did with print quality, that could be why.  Good luck!

you can set the DPI in photoshop, so you should be all set.
