Welcome to dickblick
The Silhouette Portrait Electronic Cutting Tool is a slightly smaller version of the popular Silhouette Cameo, with the same capacity to cut and sketch custom designs on cardstock, vinyl, fabric, and more using your own fonts and images.
Like a home printer, the Silhouette Portrait plugs into your PC or Mac with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing, it uses a small blade. To sketch, simply pop out the blade and insert a Silhouette Sketching Pen (sold separately). Unlike other machines, which require expensive cartridges that limit creativity, the Portrait gives you possibilities as boundless as your imagination.
Use the Silhouette Portrait to make stencils, vinyl lettering, vinyl decals, magnets, custom apparel, paper crafts, temporary tattoos, stencils for etching glass, 3-D boxes, and works of art. Cut any font on your computer, download shapes, cut around your own full-color images, or transform computer-generated drawings into drawings on paper — all with the push of a button.
Designs can measure up to 8"W × 10 ft long, with a maximum thickness of 31.5 mils (0.8 mm).
To get started right away, be sure to check out our wide selection of Silhouette starter kits, creative materials, tools, and accessories (sold separately).

Happy with my purchase
By Art C Design Shop
from San Antonio, TX
I am a cricut user and chose to try a silhouette product for two reasons: a) cricut's software is way below my expectations of what I can do to create and change designs. Silhouette's Design Studio software is easy to learn and gives me more flexibility. b) Cricut's print and cut has been giving me a lot of headache and not deliver the result I expect. For this reason I purchased a portrait instead of Cameo 3. Regarding these two reasons the Portrait delivered everything I hoped for and I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. I think the price is very fair.The cons of the portrait in my opinion is that it has a max working area of a letter sized paper (but I have a full 12x12 capacity with my cricut so for me it is ok) and it is extremely loud. I wonder if the Cameo 3 is more silent. Overall very happy with my purchase. A cricut explore air and a portrait complements each other even though I wish I didn't have to have 2 machines that only one, in theory, could do. May change to Cameo 3 when it is time to update my cricut. I need to find more info about Cameo 3.

A definite plus over my old Cricut
By Kiowa Illustrator
I got this as a clearance item, and had been wanting one for a long time because the machine's software will import my own designs. This is the smallest model, but adequate for my needs, and the importing alone made the purchase worthwhile!
