    As long as you don't try to cut the shrunk stuff you should be OK! But seriously, go carefully and test cut first as different brands and different colours will have different properties. We did some test cuts years ago with some of the Craft Robos, and found this was the case. The Portrait has much more oomph behind it so will manage better! As far as I can remember Graphtec also confirmed it was OK with the Robos, but said to watch for bits getting into the blade housing.


    PS And I would suggest that you don't try to cut too detailed shapes - or at least till you see how things go.
    "The main reason people buy those machines [Craft Robos] is to cut out words and lace doily patterns for their scrapbooks."

    Is the only difference between the Potrait and the Cameo the size? I remember reading that somewhere, but cann't remember where.

    I think the portrait is described as the smaller sister of the cameo.
