THE CURIO IS COMING: Unlock your Crafting Superpowers with the Cameo’s New Trusty Sidekick

New, from the same folks who brought you crafting action heroes like the Silhouette Cameo and Portrait, meet Curio (projected to be available August 2015 – available for pre-order at USCutter NOW!). This all-purpose crafting tool does everything but fight crime.

Add some new moves to your super-crafter toolbelt like paper embossing, metal etching, leather stippling, deep cutting of foam and vinyl, and scoring. The new Curio can do everything the Cameo can, but it is not as versatile a cutter. It won’t accept materials larger than 8.5” x 12” with the base upgrade option, whereas the Cameo will cut a width of 12” by a 10 foot roll.

The Curio is cast as more of a trusty sidekick to the Cameo, with some pretty incredible features of its own.

Its dual carriage allows you to perform multiple functions at once, mixing and matching from the list of possible Curio accessories. Stipple and Ink or Emboss and Score in one pass. Contour cut around printed images.

dream-it

The Curio has the same precision cutting that put Silhouette on the map.

 

And now, with a higher 5mm clearance and adjustable base with removable platforms, you can deep cut thicker materials than ever.

Work with leather, foam, metal, and even wood. Emboss soft papers and vellums for professional invitations and polished business cards.

With this dynamic duo at your disposal, your desktop or craft room can soon be your homebase for unlocking all your crafting superpowers. Pre-order yours today!

The Curio’s unique stippling feature lets you create amazing dot patterns that transform into unforgettable art.
