Amazingly Sleek, Smaller Silhouette Portrait!
We are very excited to announce the upcoming release of our newest electronic cutting tool—the amazingly sleek, smaller Silhouette Portrait™. The Portrait is a smaller, lighter version of the popular Silhouette CAMEO®. But, while it’s smaller in size, the Portrait is feature-rich.
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 customers who want a quality electronic cutting tool at an amazing price.
Both the Silhouette Portrait™ and the Silhouette CAMEO® will be offered concurrently. That way, consumers 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.
The Portrait connects to your computer, allowing you the freedom to cut all your own fonts, download thousands of designs from the Silhouette Online Store, or design shapes of your own with the included software.
The Portrait is designed around the standard 8.5 x 11″ dimensions of sheet materials. All Silhouette products, including heat transfer vinyl, are available in a size compatible with the Portrait. The Portrait can handle 9″ media but has an 8″ cutting area. The Portrait also has the same motor as the Cameo. This means it has the same cutting capabilities as the Cameo, including the cutting speed, down force pressure, 10 feet cutting length, and contour cutting ability!

- Silhouette Portrait electronic die-cutting tool
