Silhouette Portrait 3 – Vinyl Cutting Machine
The Silhouette Portrait® 3 is Silhouette’s smallest and most portable cutting machine. It’s perfect for the modern planner or organizer because you can easily make Print & Cut stickers from sticker sheets or labels from vinyl. But it’s also perfect if you want to take your creativity on the go.
The Portrait 3 is the perfect size for cutting letter- or A4-sized materials, so there’s no need to cut down materials or use materials that are an exclusive size. This means the Portrait 3 is ideal for cutting sheets of specialty material, like sticker sheets or tattoo paper, and cardstock. In addition, the Portrait 3 can cut rolls of material like vinyl or heat transfer that are 9 inches wide.
Because this machine is much smaller than the Silhouette Cameo®, it is ideal for anytime you want to take your creativity with you. The Portrait 3 is great for smaller projects but is mighty enough to cut or sketch on many common materials. The Portrait 3 can perform two different matless cuts in addition to cutting on a cutting mat.
The Portrait 3 has a Bluetooth® adapter preinstalled and is Bluetooth® compatible. This means that your Portrait 3 can receive cut jobs via Bluetooth without a connection to a USB cord, so it allows for wireless communication.
Silhouette Studio® is the powerful software behind any Silhouette cutting machine. With Silhouette Studio® you can create your own designs, import designs, or use designs from the Silhouette Design Store, which has over 170,000 design options.
