  1. I’m buying my wife the cameo 3 but of course having trouble with bundles. She wants to be able to make t-shirts and onsies, but also able to make decals for car windows, and yeti cups.

    Andy Kibodeaux says:
    1. Hi Andy! Bundle 34 would be perfect for that- http://www.craft-e-corner.com/silhouette-cameo-3-machine-bundle-34-guide-heat-transfer-vinyl-designs-adhesive-backed-vinyl-designs-tools.html

  2. I am going to buy my wife a Cameo 3 for her birthday. She wants to make t-shirts, custom mugs, and wooden signs. Which bundle should I pick?

    Adam says:
    1. I would recommend bundle 34! This has regular vinyl to use for tumblers and wood signs and heat transfer vinyl to use for shirts and bags, etc. You can find it here: http://www.craft-e-corner.com/silhouette-cameo-3-machine-bundle-34-guide-heat-transfer-vinyl-designs-adhesive-backed-vinyl-designs-tools.html

      Kala says:
  3. Hi. I am trying to decide which machine to buy. I have heard many negative reviews about the new cameo 3 as far as issues soon in and also not working well with the new mac sierra update. Should I stick with the Cameo 2 for now until they work out the software issues?

    LIsa says:
    1. You could choose to get a Cameo 2, it’s still a great machine. They are working on fixing and updating the software, I don’t have an estimated date of when they will release the Silhouette Studio 4, but they did say “fall of 2016.”

      Kala says:
  4. I need help choosing a bundle. My birthday is in two weeks and this is what I requested. My husband is so confused when shopping on Amazon. I want the machine to make signs, stencils for my painting projects, and to make my baby every cute shirt that I can think of. Your help is greatly appreciated as I’ve never even seen a machine let alone know how to use it.

    1. Hi Cariann!
      How exciting to get a new machine for your birthday! I can certainly help you pick out a bundle that would fit your crafting needs. It’s sometimes easier to talk through it, so if you’d like to give me a call I can help you out. Our number is 1-800-236-3877. For doing a variety of things that you want to make though, I think bundle #5 might be perfect for you 🙂
      Hope this helps!

      Kala says:
  5. I am purchasing my very first cameo, and want to use it to do wooden signs, and also make some t-shirts, etc. Which bundle, would you suggest I purchase for this? It’s all so overwhelming!

    Shellie Webb says:
    1. Hi Shellie!
      I know how exciting and overwhelming it can be to pick out the perfect bundle! The good news is, no matter what bundle you pick, you’re getting an awesome deal! While you can buy the bundle pieces separately, you get such a better price if you get them in a bundle. To help you pick which bundle is the best fit for you, I would first ask if you are looking at the Cameo 2 or the Cameo 3 machine? You can email us at service@craft-e-corner.com for more help picking!

      Thank you

      Kala says:
  6. I want one of each. Is there a bundle for that?

    Sharon Hermann says:
  7. Can the designer edition software be purchased by itself?? Or is it best/cheapest to buy when buying the bundle??

    Shelby says:
    1. You can buy the designer edition on it’s own if you wish: http://www.craft-e-corner.com/silhouette-studio-designer-edition-software.html
      There is also the designer edition plus which you can find here: http://www.craft-e-corner.com/license-code-silhouette-studio-designer-edition-plus.html

      Designer Edition Plus is more for if you are doing embroidery files and rhinestones and it also has some more useful tools. The price of it doesn’t really change if you buy it by itself or with a bundle as the total price does get factored into everything. If you have any questions about it, please let me know (service@craft-e-corner.com).

  8. My head is spinning I’d never be able to choose.

    Barb Lewis says:
