What is the Silhouette?

The Silhouette is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. It connects to your computer just like a printer, but instead of printing designs it cuts them with a small blade. With the machine connected to your computer, you'll get access to all of the fonts on your PC plus the thousands of cuttable designs found on the Silhouette Online Store.

Cut fonts already on your computer.
The Silhouette Digital Cutting Tool plugs into your PC just like a printer. That allows you to use the included software to create custom vinyl lettering and other designs using any font already installed on your computer. That's more than you'll get from any cartridge.

Scrapbook Pages
Scrapbooking has never been easier than it is with the Silhouette. When it comes to shapes, titles and paper embellishments, the Silhouette can do it all! You'll have access to nearly all of the fonts on your computer and, with the included software, you'll be able to cut your designs in any size to get the perfect fit for every layout. Be sure to have a Silhouette cutting mat on hand so you can save and cut your scraps.

With the Silhouette you can create handmade greeting cards with designs and sentiments perfect for the occasion no matter what it is. And making duplicates is as easy as a few clicks of the mouse. The Silhouette Online Store even has unique card templates from scalloped edges to flourish windows to pop-up sentiments.

Custom Apparel
With the Silhouette's intricate cutting ability and freedom to choose and customize designs and text, creating custom shirts, jeans, shoes and more is easy enough for anyone to do. Cut and iron on simple phrases or intricate layered designs in heat transfer material or add some bling to your wardrobe by cutting rhinestone templates with a Silhouette rhinestone starter kit.

Vinyl Decor
Vinyl decor is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to decorate homes. Easy to cut, self-adhesive, and removable, vinyl is the perfect way to add your favorite quotes and designs directly to the walls of your home, car windows, and projects. Best of all, Silhouette vinyl is priced just right so you can just peel off your designs when you're ready for something new.

Glass Etched Projects
Did you know you can use your Silhouette machine to create stylish etched glass? Just cut a shape or phrase in vinyl with your Silhouette and use it as a stencil to etch any glass object with your favorite etching creme, creating a customized new look.

Sketch Designs
The Silhouette can turn any design into a sketch. Just take out the blade, pop in a Silhouette sketch pen and watch the Silhouette draw intricate patterns.

Temporary Tattoos
Great for carnivals and parties, temporary tattoos can be cut in any size and applied easily with just a little water. Tattoos adhere to other surfaces as well, such as golf balls, softballs, miniatures, and more.

Paper Crafting
Intricate cuts, precision duplication, and smooth edges make the Silhouette the perfect tool for paper crafting projects. Whether you're a novice creating a simple gift box, or a pro creating paper castles and models, the Silhouette can make your crafting quicker and easier.

Silhouette also offers several tools to help you work with paper products including the pick-me-up tool used for poking out intricate cuts and placing tiny paper pieces onto finished surfaces.
