Mint for Small Business

Mint for Small Business

I come from a long line of entrepreneurs. I grew up with my parents owning and running multiple businesses. Having owned two businesses of my own, I can tell you that the Silhouette Mint™ would have been a game changer for me—a game changer, I tell you! Prepare yourself to see just how amazing the Mint can be for small businesses.

One of my favorite things about this amazing little machine is that it is a standalone item. You do not need the CAMEO or the Portrait to make it work. It is very user-friendly. If I can make a stamp, you will be able to make a stamp too. This machine will add the perfect personalized touch to any business.

Supplies Needed:

Step One: Determine Stamp Size

  1. There are seven sizes that vary from squares to rectangles and range in size from 15 mm x 15 mm to 45 mm x 90 mm. Once you decide on a size, carefully remove stamp contents from the box and plastic bag.

Step Two: Design Your Stamp

  1. Open Mint Studio™ and pick the size of your stamp. Design your stamp. The Silhouette Design Store has TONS of great option if you are looking for a particular design.  

Step Three: Print Your Stamp

  1. Click the mint leaf button on the top right. This is the Send to Mint button. Next click on the Start Mint button.
  2. Insert the stamp cartridge in the back of your machine. Be sure to leave the plastic covering on the black stamp pad, and do not bend the cartridge.
  3. Kick back and relax while your masterpiece is made!
  4. When the stamp cartridge makes its way out the front of the machine, the stamp creation process is complete. 

 

Step Four: Assemble Your Stamp

  1. Fold along the perforated line on the stamp cartridge and remove the black portion (this is the stamp). Stick the stamp to the stamp block that came in your kit.
  2. Add some ink and allow the stamp to sit for a few minutes. Do a few test stamps on some scrap paper to remove any of the excess ink, and then enjoy giving your product all the extra love it deserves.

  1. These stamps look awesome! I never thought about using them for a small business but you just made it sound amazing. Now I need it! LOL!

  2. Fantastic ideas. Can you clarify something for me please? If I use a font or picture on my packaging or stationary for a small business, do I not need to purchase a commercial licence? Is this only if I am sellling the products? Thank you.
