Product Description & Information

This item has replaced by a newer model. You can view the new Silhouette Cameo here

The Silhouette Cameo is an electronic cutting tool made for personal use. It plugs into your computer (Mac or PC) like a home printer, but instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut cardstock, paper, fabric, or vinyl. There are no expensive cartridges to buy and store. You can purchase the individual designs you want, and you can use fonts already installed on your computer. The Silhouette Cameo can cut materials measuring up to 12 inches wide and 10 feet long. The machine also features a quiet motor. This is a perfect tool for scrapbookers to create custom shapes, letters for page titles, etc. The fact that it will range 12" wide is essential for scrapbookers who want to create elements to stretch the full length of 12" x 12" layouts. But the Cameo isn't just for scrapbooking. It's an essential tool for all your handmade projects and crafts. Use it for vinyl lettering, cute custom gift boxes, school projects, card making, custom apparel, rhinestone templates, fabric ink stencils and more. Let your imagination run wild. Each Silhouette Cameo package includes:
  • Silhouette electronic cutting tool
  • Silhouette Studio software for Windows XP/Vista/7¬†and Mac OS X 10.5.8 and higher
  • 51 exclusive cuttable designs
  • Power cable, USB cable and Cutting Blade
  • 12" cutting mat and $10 gift card to the Silhouette Online Store
  • Basic Instruction Guide

      Love This Machine!

      I love, love, love my cameo! It is soooo much better than the cricut expression I shared with my sister. The cuts are so much more precise and the Print 'n' Cut feature is so fabulous. I've had the machine since April 2012 and I'm still learning new things that it can do! I love the sketch pens too! The program is free and easy to learn (quite similar to Sure Cuts a lot or Make the Cut)--but does require the use of a computer. The great part of this is that there are no crazy expensive cartridges to buy. You can make your images (which I've done using the trace function in the program) or buy individual images/files from the silhouette store. Easy Peasy!

      Granted I was already familiar with die cutting machines and programs, but I was able to cut within an hour of opening the box. Awesome!

      The only sort of negative thing I've found is the mats are more expensive than the cricut ones. But the cricut ones can be cut down to the size of the silhouette ones and they work just fine in the machine. :)

      The blade is also expensive, but I have yet to replace mine-it's lasted 8 months of regular use. Better than the cricut. :)

      I 150% recommend this machine to anyone and everyone. Best tool I own!

      I now own 7 different machines, and the Cameo is my favorite.

      I own the Gazalle, KNK, eCraft, Cricut Cake, Expressions, Imagine and now the Cameo. Yes, I'm a machine junkie. Out of all the machines, this is my absolute favorite. It cuts beautifully, and the PNC (Print 'n Cut) is to die for. The PNC's cut out accurately with no white space on the edges of the cutouts, unless you want it, and leaves no extra color on the negative.

      Yes, this is my go to machine for just about all needs. The only thing it does not do is cut heavier chipboard, but cuts cereal box weight with ease. I'm done with purchasing carts, and machines that do not work as promoted, such as the Imagine. I just can't say enough about this wonderful machine. Except, you could spend a couple of thousand dollars on a machine with the abilities of the Cameo. This is one sweet machine. The big plus, you'll be able to use your own designs!

      Don't hesitate, click the buy button, and be prepared to be amazed. I'd give it 10 stars if there was an option.

      The Best of the Best!

      I've had the Silhouette original for several years and when the Cameo came out, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it! I've had my Cameo for about a month now, and I LOVE it!!! It's quieter, quicker AND I can cut 12 x 12 with it! I think I've used the Cameo on every layout I've done since I bought it!

      I also have the Quikutz Epic, the Cuttlebug, and the Quikutz's Revolution. The Cameo is BY FAR the best ever! It is SOOOOO easy to use. Need a new design...just pop over to the online store and you can get anything you want for $.99!! Several times a year they have sales when everything is $.50 per item. You also have the option of getting a download card for a monthly fee and download unlimited files for the one fee.

      PLUS...you can cut almost ALL the fonts already on your computer...and DESIGN your own designs...how cool is that!!!

      Okay...have you guessed?...I LOVE MY CAMEO!!

      great machine....

      I love the Silhouette Cameo had it for about 3 months now. I like that fact I can use any kind of fonts on my computer to cut with it. I also like the fact I can make my own shapes etc... It took a little bit of time and figuring out the machine. But now have idea how to handle it. Almost got the cricut machine. But glad I choose this one. Since I am a graphic design major it works good for my other type of artwork. I just order a matte, another blade and a dust cover for my machine. My matte and blade are still in good working order. I just thought it would be good idea to have extra matte and blade on hand just in case.

      It does sometimes tear up paper but you just have to play around with the speed and pressure and figure out what works will with your paper. All in all this machine does the job.

      Will this machine cut pop-up cards like rge Elizabeth Craft Designs die cuts Garden Bench or any of the Sizzix pop-up dies?   By: User (22-Sep-14) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
      This question is about a related product.
      • The Cameo will cut pop-up cards. If you browse the Silhouette Design Store (used to be called Silhouette Online Store ) you can see the kinds of cut files they have available for immediate download. http://www.silhouettedesignstore.com/

        If you upgrade from the basic software to the Designer software, you can cut SVG files, like designs from one of my favorites- SVGCuts.com (shop around for the software-there are often deals to get it for a good price)

        Silhouette School shows how to make a basic pop up card then you can add whatever you want to it. It's one of the best places online to learn how to do things with your Cameo!

      • That did not answer the question. The question was not whether the machine used dies. The question asked whether the machine could accomplish cutting out pop up cards like machines that use dies. I hope someone is able to address the question as I would also like to know.

      • The starter bundle comes with the basic software. You can purchase the Designer software separately. I think it runs about $50.00. By: NMscrapper (10-Aug-14) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!
