Difference between Gift Cards and Download Cards
Gift Cards vs Download Cards Overview
Silhouette America® offers two main areas where purchases can be transacted:
The Silhouette America® website
The Silhouette Design Store
The Silhouette America® website offers physical and digital products (including both physical tools & consumables, as well as products that are issued digitally, such Gift Cards and Download cards, and software license keys for software upgrades). Please note that Gift Cards are valid toward purchases for products made on the Silhouette America® website. Credit from Gift Cards can be used to purchase Download Cards from our website.
The Silhouette Design Store offers download content that is intended for use with the Silhouette Studio® software program (including library image content to be cut, fill patterns for print & cut jobs, and fonts to provide different text style options). Credit from Download Cards can only be used toward the direct purchase of this download content. Credit from Download Cards cannot be used toward the purchase of subscriptions or products offered on the Silhouette America® website (including digital products, such as software license keys for software upgrades).
