SHARE | Thirsty Thursday • Silhouette PORTRAiT

Thursday, October 4

defined as a day to...
share something...ANYTHING...
that makes my mouth water...
quenches my creative tastebuds...
satisfies my thirst for inspiration...
or leaves me "creatively parched"
and ultimately wanting for more...

Stop the presses!
Look what hit my inbox yesterday...

It was exactly one week ago that I shared with you the Silhouette Cameo™...
and how it has been on my radar for some time.

To my delight...
Silhouette has now announced the release of "The Silhouette Portrait...a smaller, lighter version of the popular Silhouette CAMEO®."

Here are the details taken from the email I received, quoted verbatim...

"The Silhouette Portrait™ has the same motor and cutting mechanism as the CAMEO, yet the entire unit weighs only 3.5 pounds. The Portrait can cut all the same types of materials that the CAMEO can (including all Silhouette branded materials) and includes a cutting mat that will accept Letter (8.5 in x 11 in) and A4 sized sheet goods. Like the CAMEO, the Portrait has an optical scanner so it can be used with a home printer to create print & cut projects. Of course, the Portrait also includes our powerful Silhouette Studio® software—allowing users to create their own designs and cut the fonts already installed on their computers. 

Perhaps the most appealing feature of the new Silhouette Portrait™ is the low cost. With an MSRP of just $199.99, the Portrait will appeal to individuals who want a quality electronic cutting tool at an amazing price. 

With the release of the Portrait, we will still be offering the Silhouette CAMEO® so that our customers can choose between the extra features of the CAMEO (wider cutting surface, LCD display, SD card compatibility) or the lower price and portability of the Portrait." 

Fun fabulous projects...just minutes away...

Here's the scoop:

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.
