Shop All Cameo 3 Bundles HERE
With the recent announcement that Silhouette CAMEO 4 will be released later this year, now may be the best time ever to get a Silhouette CAMEO 3.
If you’re considering getting your first Silhouette CAMEO or already own one but want to upgrade or need a back up - here are five reasons to think about getting a CAMEO 3 now…before you no longer can.
Silhouette CAMEO 3 machines can be found as low as $199....sometimes even less. This is a full $100 cheaper than what the Silhouette CAMEO 4 will start at for the base machine. You can often score a Silhouette CAMEO 3 Bundle for $229 - $269. Silhouette CAMEO 4 bundles will start at $329 and go up from there.
If you're content cutting vinyl, HTV, and paper and don't have business or crafting needs where speed or cutting thicker materials is a real factor, the CAMEO 3 may actually be more than what you need for your crafting hobby. Combine that with the $100 swing between the price of the CAMEO 3 vs CAMEO 4 and you may want to consider getting a CAMEO 3 now to save yourself some money while you can.
As of now, the plan is that once production on the Silhouette CAMEO 4 gets into full swing, production of the Silhouette CAMEO 3 will stop and the CAMEO 3s will be discontinued. That means you'll no longer be able to get a 12" Silhouette cutting machine around the $199 price point...and you won't be able to get a feature-wise more straight-forward, entry level 12" machine from Silhouette. You should also keep in mind once the CAMEO 3's are completely sold out - which many retailers and Silhouette expect will be prior to the holiday season - the Silhouette machines price points will be around $160 for an 8" Silhouette Portrait and then jump to almost twice that for a CAMEO 4. My point is we are losing the middle pricing area for 12" Silhouette CAMEOs.
