    Cool process for Stamp and Cut -- WORKS! |
    0

    I actually like this mat better than the original mats I've used... and it is a favorite of one of my personal students too. I'll be introducing this PixScan feature to the entire class in the next couple of weeks, and I'm very excited about it. I've really enjoyed this feature. Thank you, Silhouette for making this available for us and on Amazon.com too! The only reason I can figure out why people would not like this is if they aren't using it properly... and I'll have to admit, it was difficult to "get" it because, at first, there wasn't much in the way of tutorials or instruction. I haven't looked lately, but I hope Silhouette is doing a better job at this because the technique is well worth having -- if you know how to calibrate your camera. I never did figure out how to calibrate my scanner. It never did do right... and I'm a techno geek. But, the saving grace was the ability to calibrate my camera(s). With this, I've been able to photograph my 8 1/2" x 11" stamped cardstock on the PixScan Mat and cut the stamped images out precisely using the upgraded version of the Silhouette Design Studio software. You have to be sure to upgrade your computer as well. It is an easy process once these two things are done: Calibrate camera and upgrade computer with Silhouette Design Software version 3.1.417. I have not found the need to buy the Designer version since I have Sure Cuts A Lot and can manipulate SVG files with it and also do the Rhinestone features and more, but my students are enjoying the Designer edition of the software. I would have bought it if I had needed it. You don't need the upgraded Designer program in order to do this PixScan technique. I had figured out a way to stamp and cut without PixScan, but it was a drawn out process. This PixScan made the task much easier. I hope this helps!

    Great idea, saves paper |
    Verified Purchase

    This mat is such a better alternative to the Print & Cut feature. You do not waste any of your paper printing registration marks because they are part of the mat. It is very easy to use.. you just put the paper you want to cut in the box, take a picture of the entire mat, import the picture into Silhouette Studio, and use the Trace feature to get the cut outline. You do need good lighting and a decent camera to get a good solid trace. One downside is that the max cut area is only large enough to fit 8.5" x 11" paper.

    SO GLAD I ordered this!!! |
    Verified Purchase

    This mat literally SAVED MY HIDE!! I've been wanting a Cameo for years, and after taking on the task of helping my best friend create her baby's first birthday party theme and decorations, I finally had a reason to get one! I thought surely I'd be able to figure it out and use it for what I needed, but unfortunately, being so new to the machine and software, what I needed to do was so simple that it ended up being hard, lol, and I did not have much time to work with. The tutorials I was able to find online were all WAY above what I needed to do right away (someday, though...) and I ended up spending 2 completely sleepless nights trying to figure out how to make the simplest things possible, and only realized at absolute crunch time that I'd gone about it all completely the wrong way from the beginning, since I was using a design package that my friend had chosen from a website and not a Cameo design. The PixScan Mat was an Amazon suggestion at the time I bought the machine, and after watching the Cameo video, I thought it looked really cool and went ahead and added it to my order. As I sat in the wee hours of this precious baby's birthday trying to figure out how I was going to undo all of my hours of incorrect work and get the things I needed to cut to actually go through the Cameo and cut (not something I could've just done with scissors!), it finally occurred to me, I had the PixScan Mat! I whipped out my cell phone and snapped a pic of one of the million sheets of uncut card stock I had here and crossed my fingers and hoped for the best. It WORKED, and it was SO SIMPLE!!! I had gotten so frustrated before that point, I actually went to my husband in TEARS of relief to show him my perfectly cut card stock that I was FINALLY able to accomplish with the PixScan Mat! So, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!! You not only saved me, but you saved one sweet little baby girl's very first birthday party, too!! I look forward to learning the machine better and being able to do all of the amazing things that I saw in the MANY tutorials that I watched, but, being such a newbie and needing to do something right away with the machine like that, I am SO GLAD that I added the PixScan Mat onto my order, and I can't wait to see what else I can do with it, too! Seriously, how COOL is it to be able to just snap a pic with your cell phone and then create? Also, since I ordered the Cameo kit, I actually got two of their regular mats, and I have to say, I MUCH prefer the texture and stickiness (it's sticky enough to hold the materials in place well, but they come off SO much easier and I didn't need any tools to peel everything off the mat like with the clear ones... also, there were no teeny bits of card stock residue left behind on it afterward like I'm STILL having to try to peel off of the clear ones) of the PixScan Mat over the original ones, and I ran it through my machine about a million times that night/morning and it's still in perfect condition, so it must be pretty darn durable, and I can definitely see myself using that one a lot more than the others whenever possible. A GREAT concept, a GREAT product, and WHEW, am I glad I added THAT THING onto my order when I did, because I really don't know what I would've done without it in this situation! Thanks SO much for selling such a wonderful product and getting it to me so quickly... I had left it in its wrapping thinking it would be something fun to play around with at some point in the future, but I was in SO much trouble and so desperate to get the items made that I had promised my friend for that party, and I looked over in my panic and exhaustion and saw it sitting there and thought, "That is literally my ONLY hope to get any of this to work in time," and it was EXACTLY what I needed. It was also so easy to use, my fried, tired brain had NO trouble figuring it out and I was able to get what I had been attempting to do for 2 days to happen perfectly in just a matter of minutes. Not only that, but I ended up making even MORE items for the party than I originally intended because it was so fun and easy and quick to use once I got going! Thank you SO much for bailing me out of a REALLY tough spot and also making the birthday party a beautiful success! I can't wait to explore what all I can do with this mat now just for fun! :)

    Registration errors with cameo.... |
    Verified Purchase

    I have been using the cameo for more than a year mostly cutting vinyl. I thought I'd purchase this to try and use the machine in different ways. I was not able to use this mat. I read every single tip on forums and on videos and nothing. My cameo would just read the 3 registration marks and then it would give me an error. Spent a few hours trying to figure it out but just gave up. Seems like a great product according to the website and videos if you can get it to work.

    I'm satisfied with my purchase |
    Verified Purchase

    I'm satisfied with my purchase. I got the program to sort of work on the first try (though I referenced a lot of youtube videos first). I think it helps if you can take a straight-on shot as level a you can in good even light. My angle was slightly off kilter and the program shifted the cutting to the right just a little bit. (Also, it helps if you choose to add some wiggle room to your cuts vs cutting as close to the edge of your designs as some tutorials show.)

    Just what I needed! |
    Verified Purchase

    I used to do a lot of print and cut with my Cameo, but I found that the registration marks sometimes didn't read right and I also hated wasting some valuable space. When I found this mat, I was really excited and the very first time I used it, I fell in love! It works so easily that I was a bit shocked and waiting for some kind of hiccup, but it has consistently met my expectations. I love that it allows me to use a full page to print on and gives me the ability to maximize use of my materials. I use my iPhone 6 Plus to take a picture of the mat and the software is already set up to calibrate the image before the cut. If you print a lot stickers, decals, etc., I would recommend looking into this product, as it has really amazed me! Picture shows accuracy of cuts that are super close together.

    Would be good if the cameo would calibrate it correctly |
    Verified Purchase

    Would be good if the cameo would calibrate it correctly. Attempted all the troubleshoots and it consistently cuts a few millimetres off the actual scan. Only way I can get it to work is if I measure and move my image 3mm for it to cut. I've only used it that one time. Haven't touched it since.

    Awesome for preprinted things |
    Verified Purchase

    Such a great product! Allows you to take a picture, send to the machine, and then cut exactly what you want it to. So if you had a design on paper that you couldn't recreate in the software to cut properly all you would have to do is use this mat. Smooth perfect lines instead of trying to make intricate cuts with your scissors.

    ... I could get this to work it would be great. I have read the forum |
    Verified Purchase

    I am sure if I could get this to work it would be great. I have read the forum, watched videos. Finally was able to calibrate my camera. Now I'm having registration mark errors after uploading my picture. I haven't given up 100% yet, but need a break from it cause its so frustrating. Make it easier silhouette cameo.
