Silhouette Cutter - Portrait vs. Cameo

cameo-or-portrait

Sometimes in life you are spoilt for choice. If you are new to cutting machines you might feel the same way. When you're trying to figure out which Silhouette cutter best suits your needs have a look at our comparison for Silhouette Portrait and Silhouette Cameo. For our textile vinyls we're mostly using the Silhouette Portrait. But if you know that you will also work with paper and cardboard, maybe cut boxes and similar stuff, we recommend the Silhouette Cameo with its bigger cutting area. Every Silhouette cutter comes with the Studio software, a cutting mat, cables and a blade set.
