Continuing our look at the Silhouette Mint, join us to check out the Mint Studio application.
Silhouette Mint Studio
The Mint Studio application from Silhouette is how you create your designs to send them to the Mint to be made into your own custom stamps. It is available for Windows and Mac OS X and it’s a free download.
It shares a lot of the functionality of the Silhouette Studio application. If you’ve used that application before you’ll be ready to hop right into making your own stamps. If this is all new to you, it’s not that complicated that you won’t be making stamps after a few minutes of playing with the application.
You have access to all the fonts installed on your computer plus you can upload your own pictures too. You have all the text and drawing tools available too, including basic shapes, lines and freehand drawing tools, frames, cropping. You can also draw in images from your Silhouette Library.
The last step before making your stamp is the Ink Preview shown below. It takes your art and using your choice of Stamp Filters you can decide how your art and design will be made into a black & white image for your stamp. You will want to familiarize yourself with the filters and try out different approaches with your pictures to see which ones will give you the best results. It’s going to vary from image to image, so don’t be afraid to try them out here before making your final stamp.
Download for Free
You can download the Mint Studio for free from Silhouette’s website. It is available for This is a great way to try out the software to see what you can create to help make a decision if purchasing a Mint is right for you.
