How to Choose The Best Bundle For A Gift

To get started, let’s look at the three most important questions. These questions will assist you in picking out the right bundle for that special someone! 

  • How wide of a material will they be cutting?
  • Will they be doing projects on hard surfaces, such as, cups, walls, or decals?
  • Will they be doing projects on fabric surfaces, such as, making t-shirts or hats?

The best and most recommended machine we have is the Silhouette Cameo 3.  The cameo 3 uses a small blade to cut over 100 materials, including paper, cardstock, vinyl, and fabric up to 12 in. wide.  In our Cameo 3 Bundles, the machine will be consistent, but accessories will vary depending on which one you choose. All bundles will come with everything you need to get started on your first project!

Now, let’s review some of the different types of vinyl that may be included. If you are purchasing for someone who is mainly looking to work with hard surfaced items (cups, walls, tumblers, car decals) then you will want to look for a bundle that includes adhesive vinyl. We highly recommend Oracal Adhesive Vinyl. Below are the top two bundles we recommend (Click image to go to product page):


 Silhouette Cameo 3 Bluetooth Bundle 24 Oracal 651 Sheets, Guides, 24 Pack Sketch Pens, and More Silhouette Cameo 3 Bluetooth Bundle 24 Oracal 651 Sheets, Guides, 24 Pack Sketch Pens, and More Silhouette Cameo 3 Bluetooth Bundle 24 Oracal 651 Sheets, Guides, 24 Pack Sketch Pens, and More    Silhouette Cameo 3 Bluetooth Bundle 24 Oracal 651 Sheets, Guides, 24 Pack Sketch Pens, and More 

The second type of vinyl we offer in bundles is called Heat Transfer Material or HTV for short. HTV is best for use on fabrics (clothing, pillows, bags, and hats). We highly recommend Siser brand heat transfer. These bundles would be great for anyone looking to open a t-shirt business or make shirts for friends and family! Below are the top two HTV bundles we recommend:

  

You may ask, what should you do if you’re purchasing for someone who wants to create projects on both hard and soft materials? Don't worry we have you covered! Here are the two bundles we recommend that contain both adhesive vinyl and HTV.

  

 If you are looking for a smaller machine that has the same capabilities, we suggest checking out our Silhouette Portrait Cutting machine aka Cameo mini! Compact -- yet can tackle any task the Cameo 3 can do. Newly updated, the Cameo Mini has a 9 inch wide cutting area and is Bluetooth enabled. With a 2 mm clearance you can use the deep cut blade to cut thicker material or use the auto adjust blade to cut your everyday media!

Happy Crafting!
