Silhouette Portrait Craft Vinyl Cutter
The Silhouette Portrait™ is a smaller, lighter version of the popular Silhouette CAMEO electronic cutting tool. Like the CAMEO, the 8" Portrait connects to your computer, allowing you the freedom to cut all your fonts, download thousands of designs from the Silhouette Online Store, or design shapes of your own with the included software. The Silhouette Portrait has an optical scanner that reads registration marks printed with your design and cuts precisely around the image.
The Portrait is designed around the standard 8.5”x11” dimensions of sheet materials. All Silhouette products, including heat transfer vinyl, are available in a size compatible with the Portrait. The Portrait can handle 9" media but has an 8" cutting area.
The Portrait also has the same motor as the Cameo. This means it has the same cutting capabilities as the Cameo, including the cutting speed, downforce pressure, 10 feet cutting length, and contour cutting ability!
Silhouette studio is the free software included with your Silhouette Portrait. It is both MAC and PC compatible and contains powerful design tools to help you create your own shapes. This software also organizes and stores all of your unique designs in the Silhouette Studio library.
Cut a variety of materials including:
- Magnet paper
- Heat transfer material
- Wood paper
- Adhesive vinyl
What kinds of projects can I do with my Silhouette Portrait:
- Scrapbook layouts and cards: Cut titles, background designs, or shapes to embellish any scrapbook page or card.
- Rhinestone projects: Add some bling to your projects by cutting a template with your Silhouette Portrait™ and brushing Silhouette rhinestones into the design making them easy to layout and transfer.
- Fabric ink projects: Create a screen printed look by cutting a stencil using the Silhouette Portrait™ and applying inks to your fabric projects.
- Vinyl projects: Cut out intricate designs in vinyl and apply them to your wall, car, or almost any project surface.
- Heat transfer projects: Create custom apparel, accessories, and home décor by cutting out heat transfer material and ironing your designs onto your fabric project.
- Paper crafting: Create custom invitations, boxes, favors—even cupcake liners and doilies
- With the Silhouette Portrait, you can use cut fonts already installed on your computer. Chances are, you already have dozens of fonts on your computer. With the Portrait, you can use them to cut out any combination of words you want - in any size.
