Here is the new Silhouette that will cut up to 12 by 12 inches papers and cardstock.

According to Silhouette’s Web site these are the specifications of the new and bigger Silhouette Cameo:

– True 12″ width cutting area (with the ability cut an actual 12″ rather than a 11.5″ cutting area like other comparable machines). You will be able to adjust the rollers of the machine to cut smaller size papers (9 inches).
– Will include 13″ x 13.5″ mat to provide a 12″ x 12″ cutting area for materials that require a mat
– Ability to cut longer custom lengths for materials with their own adhesive backing
– Optical scanner for “Print & Cut” applications. Silhouette is very accurate with the P&C files.
– Compatible with Silhouette Studio® allowing you to cut fonts and images from your PC or Mac®. Also, looks like Silhouette is coming out with a newer version of the software at the same time of the Cameo release to the public.
– Cuts vinyl, paper, cardstock, fabric, etc just like the Silhouette SD
– The machine uses the same size of blade and sketch pen as the Silhouette SD, so all of your current accessories are compatible. Don’t have to buy new accesories if you already have some for the SD.
– Quieter operation during cutting process. This is good since the smaller Sil. is considered loud for some people.

The Silhouette Cameo will be offered at a suggested retail price of $299.99 and will be available for purchase later this year (projected October 2011); so you will have this machine ready for the holidays.

If you are interested in getting this machine, let me know at so I can include your name in the pre-order list. Also, if I can get any discount from Silhouette America, I will pass this to my customers.

Have a great day/evening!
