Silhouette Studio Upgrade Features List: Designer Edition, Designer Edition Plus, Business Edition

I get asked all the time - is Silhouette Studio Designer Edition worth the upgrade? What features are included with Silhouette Studio Business Edition?  Does the highest upgrade include the features of the others?  Finally, I decided to put together an easy to read list of features, tutorials, and FAQs about all of the Silhouette Studio upgrades.

I can tell you - there's never been reason to upgrade straight to Silhouette Studio Business Edition.   Silhouette Studio V4.1 was just released in open Beta and it includes a lot of new features - many of them not available in the free basic Silhouette Studio version.

19 Amazing Silhouette CAMEO Print and Cut Project Ideas

In the three and a half years I've been blogging I don't think there's been any single feature of the Silhouette CAMEO (or Portrait) that I've used more diversely than Print and Cut! Ironically - it's the one feature that scares or intimidates more beginners than anything else.  I have to tell you - it's worth getting over that fear (grab The Ultimate Silhouette Guide to Print and Cut to help you along) because Silhouette print and cut is truly amazing.

I've literally shared dozens of different Silhouette CAMEO Print and Cut projects and tutorials on the blog...but here are my favorites!

New Silhouette Products for 2017 Are Here!

A whole bunch of new Silhouette products were released today and I know you guys are going to go crazy over some of them!



When I say new Silhouette America products I don't mean the Pink CAMEO or the Silhouette 3D printer  (those are coming too but later) - I'm talking about specialty media - things you can cut.

When the new Silhouette CAMEO Light Tote bags were released a few months back, I immediately grabbed one.

I have to be honest, the price made me think the quality of this bag and the material would be on the lower end. But I was wrong!

Organizing Patterns into Sub-Folders in the Silhouette Studio Library

I use Silhouette Studio every day and yet there are still features I come across that I didn't know existed.

For example a few weeks ago I realized I could add sub-folders to the Patterns folder in my library and sort my imported patterns however I wanted! Mind blown. 

Silhouette Sketch Pen Solid Fill Hack

I get asked repeatedly about how to fill in sketch pen designs - specifically fonts.

This is a sponsored post but all opinions are my own.

I've shared 4 different ways to fill in with sketch pens using the Silhouette CAMEO or other Silhouette machines, but today I'm going to introduce you to another way! This one, in my opinion, results in the absolute best sketch fill so it's ideal if you have Designer Edition (which you'll need for this Silhouette tutorial).

Designing Block Out Text Designs in Silhouette Studio (Plus Free Silhouette Design download)

I get asked from time to time how to create text-based designs in Silhouette Studio where it appears the text is in a shape - usually a rectangle.

I don't really know what the name of this 'look' is...it's sort of like stencil-inspired text designs or reverse weeded text designs. Since I don't know if they have a name... I'm just going to call them 'Block Out' text designs.
