The Silhouette Cameo 4 is launching SOON and Swing Design will have the ONLY exclusive bundles available for sale and you can even get yours first before Silhouette ships them in September/October. Preorders will begin on September 10th, so don’t hesitate to click the button below to get on the notification list!

How Much Will the Silhouette Cameo 4 Cost?

The new Silhouette Cameo 4 will be priced starting at $299, with additional bundles available.

I bought my Silhouette Cameo 4 bundle from Swing Design and this is the EXACT bundle I purchased:

IMPORTANT: Silhouette has announced that they will be discontinuing production of the Silhouette Cameo 3 so this month may be your last chance to purchase a nice entry level cutter with a 12 inch work space.

The new Silhouette CAMEO 4 Features:

  • Increased Downward Force – up to 5kg (5000 g) to allow for the cutting of thicker materials including leather, balsa wood (hello, cake toppers!) and craft foam.
  • Increased Cutting Speed and Acceleration (about 3x Faster than CAMEO 3)
  • Ability to use Silhouette Rotary Blade & Silhouette Kraft Blade 
  • Single tap AutoBlade 
  • Larger Tool Carriage Housing (Tool adapter included. Silhouette CAMEO 4 tools will not fit in older machines)
  • Gear Driven Tool Carriage to accommodate Rotary Blade, Kraft Blade, and new Auto Blade
  • Auto Tool Detection allows for the software and machine to detect if the tool in the carriage is a sketch pen, blade, auto blade, etc.
  • Built-in Pull Out Roll Feeder & Retractable Cover

Should I buy one? My (not-so) final verdict:

In my opinion, the Silhouette Cameo 4 is going to be a monster machine that might be intimidating to some newer users. If you are someone who absolutely loves the newest, and doesn’t mind learning a little on your own, testing, and trial and error, then absolutely go for it.

I don’t know that I would recommend it as a first machine for a brand new beginner, but its always impossible to tell exactly how far you’re going to take your new hobby. It’s going to have a learning curve even for users used to other Silhouette machines.

What if this isn’t in my budget?

If the Cameo 4 isn’t in your budget, but you want an amazing starter machine, my second personal favorite Silhouette cutting machine is the Silhouette Portrait.

I will do a more in-depth review of the Silhouette Portrait and its features, along with why I feel it’s the PERFECT starter machine for everyone, and (shhh don’t tell my husband…) but I even prefer it to the Silhouette Cameo 2!

However, no one can take my Cameo 3 away from me, and I plan to keep both it and the Cameo 4 when it arrives. You can get amazing deal on a Cameo 3 here at Swing Design as well:
