Silhouette quietly released a connection between the two programs that is a game changer for Mac users. This tutorial will show you exactly how and why this is such a time saver. You'll have your image printed to your Sawgrass SG500 or SG1000 in just three clicks! 

In order to use the Sawgrass color profiles Print Manager you must print through Sawgrass Print Manager. PC users have long been able to access the Sawgrass Print Manager directly from Silhouette Studio, while Mac users have had to export the file out of Silhouette Studio completely and reopen in Print Manager. But that's now changed. 

While Mac users still won't find the Sawgrass Print Manager in the exact same spot as PC users, it's MUCH easier and faster than the old method.  

Here's what you need to do...
