The Silhouette Cameo Pro (sometimes also referred to as the Silhouette Cameo 4 Pro) 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 24" wide. 

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