Silhouette product-release day is here! As many of you know, I was invited to Silhouette Summit in Hawaii again this past May, so I got to see nearly all of these in person. Here is a breakdown of the new products and some photos I took while at Silhouette Summit.
Warning: this post is heavy on photos!
New Heat Transfer Colors:
- Metallic copper
- Reflective (green, blue, red)
The reflective and iridescent heat transfers really zing when you shine direct light on them!
New Adhesive Vinyl:
- Metallic (rose gold, red, teal, green, black)
I’m pretty excited about these. The existing gold and silver metallics are so shiny and fun, so any additional colors are going to be fantastic. They really fit the foil trend that’s so popular right now.
- Carbon fiber vinyl (black, and sampler pack of black/white/gold)
The texture on this vinyl is a lot of fun. I’m always looking for ways to add texture to my projects, so the gears are turning in my head on how I might use this.
- Wood vinyl (maple, walnut, ebony, and sampler pack)
I’m happy to see this come out in an adhesive vinyl! Silhouette already has this in heat transfer for fabrics, but with adhesive vinyl I’m going to apply all kinds of fun reflective designs to my kids’ bikes and helmets!
New Sticker Sheets:
- Printable glitter
I have to admit, this is one of my favorite new products. It’s a white/silver glitter sticker paper, but the corners have plain unglittered white areas so the registration marks can be printed and read without issue. You can print any color with your inkjet printer and it instantly becomes colored glitter stickers! GLITTER!! STICKERS! (My third grade self is jumping for joy.) 😉
New Tattoo Paper:
- Printable white
This is another one I’m happy to see. We already use the clear tattoo paper for fun “skin stickers” as we call them at our house. I also like using the tattoo paper for DIY nail decals, but the new white option will be even better for nails so you can get whatever color you want (including white) as the background, and not just the nail-polish color behind the “white space” of the designs.
OK, this one is super fun! Now we can add foil designs to our skin!! I got to play with this at Silhouette Summit with other bloggers and designers, and it was great! It stayed on my skin for several days, but I was able to get it off when I needed to.

Embossable foil: silver & copper pack (5×7”)
This embossing foil uses Curio’s embossing tools to press a design into the foil and leave a portion raised up. I didn’t get to see this one in action, so I’m anxious to play with it myself!
Foil transfer sheets:
Another favorite here. Silhouette has developed a unique foil that doesn’t need heat or adhesive as an application, so you can just add pressure to apply it. It’s designed to work with the Silhouette Curio’s emboss fill function, but you can literally just scratch a design with your fingernail or write on top with a dry pen to make this foil apply to the surface beneath it!
To get results like the samples below, you should use the emboss fill in Silhouette Studio. Isn’t it gorgeous?!
Silhouette also announced new machines, software updates, and the Silhouette Handbook, but I won’t go into those here. The new products will be shipping to retailers soon, so keep your eye out as they roll out in the next few weeks!
