Silhouette Portrait®

The Silhouette Portrait® is an electronic cutting machine for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac® with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing, it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric, and other material up to 8 inches wide and 10 feet long. The machine also has the ability to register and cut printed materials and is PixScan™ compatible.
