The New Silhouette Machine!

Posted on by Laura
We are very excited to announce the upcoming release of our newest electronic cutting tool—the 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.

We are also pleased to announce another new addition to the Silhouette family of products—the Silhouette advent calendar kit:

Due to the popularity of last year’s advent calendar, we’ve decided to release one this year as well. This limited edition advent calendar kit comes with a full set of shapes that can be arranged any way you like. Use your Silhouette and your favorite paper to customize the calendar in your own style. With different decorations, the advent calendar can be used for any occasion!

Scrapbook Paradise’s Shipment will be here in November when the machines ship out.  Please pre-order your Portrait by calling the store today at 775-746-1212.
