Vinyl Cutting Machines!

Vinyl is used so much these days for many things such as banners, signs, car windows, and especially home decor! The great thing is that we can create our own vinyl decor right in the comfort of our own home with our own personal vinyl  cutter! Silhouette America and Making Memories have made this possible with their fantastic machines that cut vinyl lettering or designs quick and easy!

Up to now we have been carrying the Silhouette SD which has been a wonderful machine, but now we are introducing the Silhouette Cameo which will be replacing the Silhouette SD. The Silhouette Cameo 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 12″ wide and 10 feet long. The machine also boasts a quiet motor and the ability to register and cut printed materials. WOW!

The Silhouette CAMEO ships with the following important items:

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
12″ cutting mat
Cutting blade
$10 gift card to the Silhouette Online Store
basic instruction guide
*Please note this is a special order item and cannot be returned or refunded. This item will be available in October 2011! We are accepting pre-orders for this item now.

Making Memories Slice Elite Cordless Digital Design Cutter in the color BLUE has a hardware upgrade allowing the ELITE to cut more precise, 40% faster and twice as deep. Cut textured cardstock, vellum, vinyl, acetate, foam sheets, thin metal sheets and photos up to 1mm thick. Cut 1 inch to 4 inch designs in 1/2 inch increments anywhere on any size media. Scroll through hundreds of designs with the push of a button; a large 2 inch window allows a preview of the shapes before cutting. Slice Elite weighs less than 2 pounds, measures less than 5 inch square and works with batteries or power cord.

Kit includes Slice Elite machine, Basic Elements design card & booklet, 6X6″ inch glass cutting mat, 5 blades, blade replacement tool & adjustment wrench, power cord, repositionable adhesive, foam brush, user manual and quick start guide. Works with all Slice design cards and accessories.

*Also available in PINK!
**International Customers: For those who live in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and South Africa, you will need to purchase this item from a local retailer, as your power source is not compatible with the US model! Using an adapter will void the warranty!

I have had great responses when I talk to owners of the Silhouette Machine and Slice Design Cutter. If you do not own one of these machines, don’t worry, you can also cut vinyl with manual machines, it just takes more time and patience! Most manufacturer dies can cut vinyl in manual crank die cutting machines. Here is a die cutting machine comparison on ALL machines.

I hope this post has been helpful if you are in the market for a personal vinyl cutting machine!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
