But have you seen some of the other awesome products and accessories from Silhouette America? Below are just a few of our favorites.

Heat transfer

Heat transfer

If you’ve ever wanted a custom t-shirt or tote bag, then you’re going to LOVE the heat transfer from Silhouette! Simply create your design in your Cameo’s software and then cut the design from the heat transfer material. There are even some styles you can print on! Then, just iron on your design and voila–a custom shirt or item. Just think of the possibilities for bachelor/bachelorette parties, family reunions, sports teams, companies, and more. Totally cool!

Sketch pens

Sketch pens

If drawing or hand-lettering is not your strong suit, sketch pens are for you! Simply pop out the blade in your Cameo and replace with one of the sketch pens. Instead of cutting your design on the paper, you will draw it instead! It’s a fun idea for home decor projects, invitations, cards, and a whole lot more. Choose from small packs of pens to large multi-color packs, glitter pens, metallic pens, and other options.

Fabric blade

Do you like to quilt or sew? You’ve got to check out the fabric blade! All you have to do is replace the normal blade in the Cameo with the fabric blade and you can cut shapes out of fabric. Just affix the fabric to the cutting mat and send it through the machine like you would paper. Then, use the cut-out shapes for quilting, add some iron-on adhesive and add to tote bags or clothing, or use the pieces in your home decor projects. So fun!

Silhouette Curio machine

If you like the Cameo, you’ll love the Curio because you can do even MORE with it! With the Curio, not only can you cut but you can also emboss, demboss, stipple, etch, and more. It uses the same Silhouette Studio software as the Cameo, but it gives you even more creative possibilities. It’s definitely worth checking out and adding to your wish list!

Silhouette Mint machine

This machine is different from the rest because you can use it to create custom STAMPS! Cool, right? Create a custom stamp (text, images, or even photos!) to adorn your wedding invitations, baby announcements, cards, and a whole lot more. The machine’s special “thermal printing” ability lets you create 3D reliefs of custom designs on Mint stamp sheets. Simply apply Mint inks to your stamp and you are ready to roll. Stamp up to 50 times before reapplying your Mint ink. Design it, Mint it, ink it, stamp it. So fun for stampers!

These are just a few of our favorites–but there are MANY more products and accessories to help you use your Cameo or other machines to their maximum creative potential. You can shop our entire assortment of Silhouette America products HERE.
