The Silhouette Portrait® 2 is an electronic cutting machine 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 other material up to 8 inches wide and 10 feet long.
AutoBlade technology for automatically calibrated material settings
Compatible with Deep Cut Blade and PixScan technology
2mm Material Clearance

Silhouette describe it as their “most compact DIY machine” — if you’re looking for something portable and great for smaller projects, this could well be the machine for you.
If you’re a fan of the original Portrait, we know that you’re going to love this second edition. Essentially, Silhouette have taken some of the best functionality from the Cameo 3 and repackaged it into the cheaper, lighter and smaller framework of the Portrait. We’ve already covered the brand new features of the Portrait 2, but basically you can expect such things as the AutoBlade, Bluetooth compatibility, PixScan compatibility and a nice 2mm clearance.
