Introducing the Silhouette Portrait® 2

Silhouette is happy to announce the arrival of the Silhouette Portrait® 2. It has all of the same capabilities as the previous Portrait machine, but it has been fine-tuned to include some of the standout features previously available only in the Silhouette CAMEO® 3.

Portrait 2 Features:

  • AutoBlade compatibility—Let the Portrait adjust the blade for you.
  • Deep-cut blade compatibility and higher 2 mm clearance—Cut thicker materials.
  • Built-in optical scanner—Make custom cutouts with the Print & Cut feature.
  • PixScan™ technology—Scan and cut unique images.
  • Bluetooth® compatibility—Use your device to send cuts to the Portrait, no wires necessary.
  • Lightweight body and portable size—Make custom creations anywhere.

What’s New

Do you want a precision cutting machine but can’t justify the size and cost of a CAMEO? Then the Portrait 2 is the right machine for you. It’s perfectly portable, weighing under four pounds, and has an eight-inch cutting width, which makes it just the right size for personal projects. In addition, the Portrait is now equipped with the following enhancements:


The AutoBlade is a blade that is adjusted by the Portrait 2 according to the material you select in Silhouette Studio®. It helps save you time so that you have time to create more!

2 mm Clearance

The Portrait 2 has an increased clearance of 2 mm, which is an improvement from the previous Portrait version. With this feature, you can now cut thicker materials with a deep-cut blade.

Bluetooth® Technology

The Portrait 2 allows for wireless communication with its built-in Bluetooth® compatibility. It can receive cut jobs from devices, such as smartphones or tablets, that are equipped with Bluetooth®. Those devices don’t have to be plugged into the Portrait, so you don’t have to deal with extra wires if you don’t want to.


How To Purchase

You can preorder the Portrait 2 currently on our store online. Pre-ordered machines will be set to ship early November. Check with your Silhouette retailer to see whether they will carry this machine.

  5. I do not think Silhouette America ships outside of the U.S. and Canada. International Retailers can be found on the following list (scroll to below the map): You should contact your local retailer to find out specifics of when the machines are available and shipping cost.

  6. I’m excited to check out the pixscan technology because I need a machine that will cut my own designs. The original Silhouette Portrait is a great mini vinyl cutter, so I’m sure this new one will live up to it’s name.

  7. Will this machine be sold at Michaels stores in Canada, if so what date will that be.

  8. With the optical scanner does this Mean that the registration marks will pick up a lot easier. Holding my phones flashlight above it isn’t ideal

    1. All Silhouette machine models have optical scanners to read the registration marks, but the Portrait 2 has the most current technology. If you’re comparing it to an old machine that gives you trouble with registration marks, I think you’ll be happy with the update. 🙂
