How Do You Cut Bigger Than 12×24 on Silhouette Cameo?

If you are a Silhouette Cameo user, you may have already come across the limitation of being able to cut only up to 12” x 24”. Although this is a great size for most projects, there are times when you need to cut bigger than this size. Luckily, there are some hacks and tricks that can help you get the job done.

The simplest way to cut larger than 12” x 24” on your Silhouette Cameo is to adjust the cutting area of your machine. The cutting area can be adjusted by either increasing the length or width of your material or by using a bigger cutting mat. It is important to note that the maximum size for both length and width is limited to what your machine can handle.

Another trick is to use multiple pieces of material and then assemble them together. This method works best when cutting large vinyl decals or tiled images.

For example, if you need to cut a large decal in two pieces, simply cut the first piece on one piece of vinyl and then place it on another piece of vinyl. Repeat this process until all pieces have been cut.

A third option is to use a digital die-cutting service such as Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL). SCAL allows users to upload their own artwork and then choose from several different sizes up to 24” x 36”. The artwork will then be sent off for professional cutting and returned directly back to you in a few days.


Cutting larger than 12×24 on Silhouette Cameo can be done with some simple adjustments or tricks. You can adjust the cutting area, use multiple pieces of material, or use an online die-cutting service like SCAL. With these methods in hand, you’ll be able to tackle those larger projects with ease!
