We bought the Silhouette Cameo to create all stationary for our wedding: save the date, invitations, menus... I am just AMAZED on how perfect and professional it all looks like. Totally worth every euro, saved a lot on designer invitations!

The cuts are perfect, the software is easy to use and I would recommend it over and over again!

I am so pleased I bought this machine. I couldn't decide for a long time whether or not to splash out on it but I'm so glad I did.

The machine and software worked straight out of the box and it was a doddle to set up - nothing complicated at all. Every time I use the Cameo I find something new I can do with it. There are loads of designs which you can download and use straight away as well as the designs you get free with the machine. It's very simple to create your own designs and you can scan papers, templates and designs that you already have and easily convert them to cutting or print and cut files using the Studio software. It is trial and error judging the cutting depth needed for different media but the more you use it the easiser it becomes.

I love this machine!

Got it for my other half at xmas and she loves it to pieces. She finds it very handy for crafting. Delivered on time and very well packaged.

I'm not new to these machines, having owned and used a Graphtec Craftrobo for years - but I wanted to upgrade to a new machine that would let me cut wider areas, yet still have an optical scanner. Unfortunately I couldn't justify the cost of a professional vinyl cutter/plotter, but the silhouette cameo seemed like a good compromise, offering an optical sensor for recognition of registration marks, but allowing me to cut just that little bit wider than my Craftrobo.

I use Illustrator for everything, and my Craftrobo has a great plugin so that I can cut directly from this software. I knew the Silhouette Cameo didn't have an Illustrator or Coreldraw plugin supplied by Graphtec (why oh why doesn't it?!), but there was software available, called Cutwizard, which would supposedly allow you to cut directly from illustrator.

Unfortunately, once I'd bought the Cameo and tried cutting from Illustrator with it, I found that the Cutwizard software was useless, or at least certainly on my set up. I'm using Win 7 and Illustrator CS5 (full version), but although the software should work with this combination of Illustrator and operating system - it doesn't.

Exporting files from Illustrator as .dxf and opening in the Silhouette Studio software is so error prone, it's not feasible as an alternative. The Silhouette Studio software might be great in its own right for other users, but I'm afraid I'm just not interested in learning to use new software that can't do as much as the software I already have.

So... I'm afraid my new Silhouette Cameo is going back.

If Graphtec ever happen upon this review, I would beg them to write their own plugin for this machine in Illustrator and Coreldraw - I think they really missed a trick not bothering to provide this.

Yes it's currently cheaper elsewhere and there is another similar product that does away with that pesky carrier sheet (at only a little more) but never the less a good product for home use.
Don't get caught with those other ones that make you keep buying graphic plug-ins & limit your output to fit in with what "They" want you to do!!
There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube.
