  1. Wonderful goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely excellent.
    I actually like what you’ve acquired here, certainly like what you’re saying and
    the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining
    and you still care for to keep it smart. I cant wait to read far more from you.
    This is actually a wonderful website.

  2. Hi,
    I received the Cameo for Christmas and had a question that I am hoping someone can help with. I am trying to cut a tree that is four times the size of the cutting mat. Is there a way to have the Cameo cut it in four sections?


  3. Help! I want to etch wine glasses with my Silhouette Cameo vinyl as a stencil. How can I figure out the curve so my words wrap around? I’m pulling my hair out!!

    • more explanation on my ‘issue’ as I’ve played around… now I’ve done probably 22 glasses with different words/designs…
      My problem is that if I don’t adjust the bottom of the lettering or design into a curve somehow, the writing isn’t straight around the glass, it actually curves down from the middle out – do you know what I’m saying? The other issue I’m having as I do this more is that the glasses I’m using are wine glasses and the ‘bowl’ is larger than the area above it… quite a challenge, especially if you do a large logo letter!

  4. Hi Globug,
    I didn’t get a Cameo for Christmas but did get a Christmas bonus from work and bought my new Cameo with part of it. My problem is though, I have only had it 2 days and my cutting mat is in poor shape due to the blade cutting through it at the very beginning of the mat where the arrow is and no matter what I cut I have to be very careful where I place the item to be cut in studio as it is all out of alignment, I am extremely computer savvy as I build computers and also some programmes. Even trying to calibrate it doesn’t seem to work. Do you think I have a malfunctioning machine, I am so upset because I want to do so much with it.
    Kind Regards,
    Sharon (Australia)
