The bundle came in 2 days (thanks Prime!) and included everything that was listed. One thing worth mentioning is that it says you get a 1 month trial to the design store - when I put the code in for that, it actually gave me a $25 credit for the design store. I don't know if it expires in a month or what, but there are so many designs to choose from (some as low as 50 cents on clearance) that I'm having a hard time deciding what to use the credits on! The machine itself cuts like a dream, and makes more precise cuts than my Cricut ever did, even with brand new blades. I am in love with the fact that you just choose what material you're cutting (vinyl, shirt vinyl, plain paper, cardstock, etc) and the progam tells you what to set the blade to (no more guesswork!) and automatically adjusts the speed and pressure for you. So easy...Read more ›
But first, a brief explanation of an Electronic Cutting Machine. Electronic Cutting Machines (of any brand) use a blade to cut images, words, and designs on paper or other materials on a mat that you insert into the machine. You can customize this design in a software program included with the machine.
Here's what I loved about the Silhouette Cameo Electronic Cutting Machine:
- The touch screen was very responsive and easy to use. It's sleek, pretty, and had zero issues. The correct menu pops up when you need it with a few choices.
- It's so light! Easy to transport to different areas or to take to a crafting retreat.
- Paper peels easily off of the cutting mat and left very little residue after a few uses.
- The crosscut tool allows you to make an even edge off the back of the paper as it comes out of the Cameo.
- The Silhouette Studio (software for designing your cuts) is very easy to use, navigate, and create.
- Excellent cut quality.
Here's what I'm not crazy about:
- It's louder than I expected when making a cut.
- Adjusting the blade is a bit futzy. The Silhouette Studio tells you what your blade depth needs to be based on the kind of paper in your machine, which is great! BUT changing it requires taking out the blade and a special tool to adjust the depth.
- The mat leaves a slight adhesive feel to the back of the first images you cut.Read more ›
The silhouette cameo is wonderful. I have had it for 9 months now and I just love it. I have been able to make so many really cool, personal gifts. I have mostly worked with vinyl and the cameo handles that beautifully. I have found it to be pretty user friendly and had no problems getting started. I did watch a lot of youtube instructional videos while waiting for my new toy to arrive and I think that was very helpful.
I need to change the cutting blade every month and the cutting mat probably every 2-3 months but I use my cameo a lot (Amazon Subscribe & Save has been nice for that). I upgraded and bought the Designer Edition Software and have found that helpful. I also bought the 12x24 mat and use that a lot especially with larger vinyl projects. Getting this machine and all the accessories and supplies has been quite the investment but I really cannot imagine life without it anymore. I absolutely love this machine and the creative freedom that it provides.
I hooked it up and typed out some words, sent it to the cutter and was amazed at how well it cut, I thought well, time for some vinyl, I made a wall decal and sent it to the cutter after all adjustments, the machine would not do anything right again, the thing would not load. then all hell broke loose.
it started doing things all on its own, it loaded and unloaded by itself, started cutting when nothing was there. after that the screen would only read pause. I called support, went through the motions, they said they have never had one right out of the box do anything like that, gave me a return order # and off it went, all within 3 hours of opening the box, $28 shipping later and up to a 3 week wait after they receive the machine back, its been a week in route, they should receive it today 3/5/15. so when I receive it back in 3 weeks and start using it I will give an actual review.
I'm not disappointed yet, lemons are going to happen on anything.
My replacement arrived ahead of schedule. Hooked it up and repeated the same projects to see how it preformed. It works like a charm, cut a vinyl wall stencil out of dollar store contact paper. Stencils out of copy paper and used it to silk screen on shirts. Used it with and without the mat. Did everything you could ask for. Will definitely recommend the silhouette cameo. You couldn't ask for anything easier, importing any pic and using the tools to do anything you could imagine. I make my own cutting mats out of cutting sheets from the dollar store, 2 per pack. Just draw the corner lines in the same amount from the outside and spray with releasable adhesive and let dry a few minutes. Cheap and easy.
