Silhouette Cutter: How It Works


From customising your apparel to personalising your party—and everything in between—the SILHOUETTE CAMEO will help you create your own DIY masterpiece. Watch the video to learn how it is truly a cut above the rest.

Dream Cutter For DIYers

Electronic cutting to high precision with simplicity and ease in the comfort of your own home at an affordable new price - this is the Dream Cutter of DIY crafters. The best personal/SOHO cutter on the market! Let your creativity soar beyond traditional punches and die-cut machines.

Like a home printer, the Silhouette Cameo 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 other material up to 12in wide and 10ft long. It also has the ability to register and cut printed materials and is PixScan™ compatible.

    Print And Cut Technology

    The Silhouette CAMEO has a built-in optic scanner capable of reading printed materials. With Print & Cut, you can use your free Silhouette Studio® software to create a design (or use a Print & Cut design from the Silhouette Design Store) and print it out on your home printer. Once you have your printed image, you can simply take the printed material and feed it into the Silhouette. The Silhouette's built-in optic scanner will find the registration marks on your printed material and take care of the rest!

    Make custom stickers, labels, heat transfer designs, and more. Just Design (or download from the Silhouette Design Store), Print, then Cut!
