Silhouette Portrait™

The Silhouette Portrait™ is smaller and lighter than the Silhouette CAMEO® and is packed with great features. It’s small and light enough to be portable, yet has all the capability needed to make amazing projects.

The Silhouette Portrait™ is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac® with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 8″ wide and 10 feet long. The machine also has the ability to register and cut printed materials.
