Vinyl & Die-Cutters

A guide to using PPLD's vinyl & die-cutters


The Silhouette Cameo 3 is a DIY machine that uses a small blade and markers to electronically cut and sketch on various material types including vinyl, cardstock, and paper. It is compatible with materials that are up to 12" wide.

The Cameo is linked to the Silhouette software, which allows you to design and create using existing images or from scratch.


*Starting 01/02/23, the Cameo 3 will no longer be available in any of the PPLD makerspaces. Visit the Silhouette Cameo Pro tab on the left to learn about our newest die-cutting machine available now at East, Library 21c, and Sand Creek.*
