Yesterday, I unboxed my Silhouette Mint stamping machine. Today, I’ll tell you more about using the Silhouette Mint in your business.

6 Ways to Use a Silhouette Mint in Your Business

  1. Sell custom designed stamps – There’s already a market on Etsy for handmade stamps from address stamps to “handmade by” or “handcrafted by” stamps and everything in between. Take advantage of the Mint’s unique ability to make custom detailed stamps, like stamps from photos. With the current Mint refill and stamp block pricing, stamps will need to sell for between $30 and $50 (depending on the stamp size) to make a decent profit. You would also have to offer re-inking for a small fee or sell ink bottles to customers and provide instructions for re-inking.
  2. Make business cards – Every small business should have business cards, but I think handmade business cards add a nice touch in a Silhouette based business.
  3. Packaging – In addition to business cards, you can expand your business’ branding onto your packaging with tags, custom bags, custom tissue paper, and more.
  4. Paper crafting – If your business sells custom stationary, cards, cupcake toppers, tags, or anything else with paper you can expand your product lines with new products created with your Silhouette Mint.
  5. Marking products – From cards to wooden signs, you can stamp the back of your products with your company logo and website.
  6. Personal touch – Create a custom stamp with a handwritten sentiment and stamp it on your packing slips for a quick way to customize orders.

P.S. Here’s my Mint project in progress, it’s a selfie stamp. I still need to fine tune it, but the possibilities are endless! Pick up your Silhouette Mint or Silhouette Mint refill kits on Amazon.

I've started crafting custom leather goods (i.e. Handbags, wallets.) I like the way several designers of handbags use as a brand stamp on their bags. A simple, classic, and small brand stamp of either metallic gold or silver and it simply says the name of the designer. (i.e. Michael Kors, Hermes) I would like to do something similar on my bags and wallets. I've been researching different things like hot foil stamping and adhesive and heat transferred vinyl that is cut by either a Silouhette Cameo or a Cricut and then applied onto the leather. I can't afford a industrial hot foil stamp machine but I have been considering a Cricut or Silouhette and using metallic vinyl from someone like Siser and either using a adhesive or heat transferred cut out of my name/brand stamp. In my research I have now found the Silouhette Mint and I'm wondering if maybe that would be a better fit for me. I probably wouldn't use the Cameo or Cricut for much else other than this purpose so I'm thinking perhaps the stamp maker would be a better economical solution to my problem. Do they make metallic silver or gold ink that can be used with this Mint and do you know if there are inks that can be used on leather? Sorry for the long post I've been having a hard time trying to find how to achieve the look I'm wanting. Thank you in advance for any help or advice you can pass along!

This is awesome! I've often wondered if it was worth the investment, since I'm just starting out. I'll have to look into this some more.

Does the ink work on fabric?

Hello! You can stamp on fabric, but the inks are not permanent - so you wouldn't want to wash it.

I love the ideas for use of the Curio. Can you please expand a little on the "custom tissue paper"?


Wednesday 30th of March 2016

Hi Kathy! This post is about the Silhouette Mint, not the Curio. To make tissue paper with the Mint, first create a stamp with the Mint. Then, stamp it randomly around tissue paper. Super easy (and fun!)
