Join us for a mint unboxing! No, not George’s snack bar, a Silhouette Mint!
The Silhouette Mint lets you make your own custom stamps. You design your stamp on your computer in the Mint Studio application. Send your design to your Mint and you have a brand new stamp that is reusable!
We’ve been wanting to check out the Mint and had some questions we weren’t finding answers for, so we bought one!
This video is an unboxing to share what you get when you buy a Silhouette Mint. Now that we’ve opened it we are going to play around with it and test out some of our questions. If YOU have questions leave a comment in the next few days so we can try those out too in our follow up!
Stamps made with the mint are a little different from regular rubber stamps you may have used. You don’t load it up tapping it on an ink pad.
The stamps are like George says, a reverse stamp. The Mint cuts a screen with your design, then that gets placed over a casing with a sponge in it. You ink up the stamp with special bottled inks that are more like a reinker, you don’t use them with an ink pad. Then when you stamp stamp you are pushing the ink from that sponge in through the screen to imprint your design on the paper.
You will see this more in our follow up when we show you how to make a stamp with the Silhouette Mint.
