Silhouette Portrait™

The Silhouette Portrait™ is an electronic cutting tool 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 more up to 8" wide and 10 feet long.

The machine also has the ability to register and cut printed materials and is PixScan™ compatible.

The Silhouette Portrait® is small in size and small in price, but big on features.

The Portrait is the best-value electronic cutting machine on the market.

Consider this your invitation to creation.



You'll want the Silhouette Portrait® for its portability alone.

At 16.25 inches and only 3.5 pounds, it can go anywhere with you—from a friend's house to craft night.


Don't be fooled by the Portrait's small footprint—it can cut over 100 materials including paper, cardstock, vinyl, chipboard, fabric, and more.



The Silhouette Studio® software included with the Silhouette can cut Silhouette Digital Download files (obtained from the Silhouette Design Store), fonts installed on your computer that can otherwise be seen in word processing programs (such as TTF and OTF files), STUDIO files, GSD/GST files, and DXF files. The software can additionally import a variety of other common image file types (JPG, PNGBMP, GIF, and TIF files) and then Trace the image using an auto-trace function to create cut lines. Please note, however, that our company cannot guarantee the quality of results of images not created or offered from our company.

If you wish to use Adobe Illustrator®, CorelDraw®, or other vector imaging programs with the Silhouette Studio® program, you may consider upgrading to the Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition. This version provides the additional ability to import SVG files directly which you may have created in another vector imaging program (such as Adobe Illustrator® or CorelDraw®). The upgraded Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition also allows you to import PDF files, which can be auto-traced to create cut lines as noted above.

Alternately, if you do not wish to go through the Silhouette Studio® program, an alternate plug-in called Silhouette Connect™ allows users to send jobs directly from Adobe Illustrator® or CorelDraw® to the Silhouette.

In addition to being able to open the above noted file types, you may also draw your own images from scratch with friendly drawing tools found within the Silhouette Studio® software program.
