Thank you to the Silhouette team for having me guest post today! My name is Courtney and I am a calligrapher based in Los Angeles, CA. I started POPPYjack Shop in 2014 and it’s been a whirlwind of fun ever since. Don’t you love that, when you just find the perfect thing that makes your heart sing?
That’s pretty much how I felt when I heard about Silhouette’s new product, the Mint, too! I’ve always been obsessed with the idea of stamps, especially because being a hand-letterer lends itself to so many stamp designs. My problem that always held me back though was how expensive it is to turn my lettering into a physical stamp. But now I have my Mint and I’m in love!
I can use my Mint for just about anything but my favorite has to be for return addresses. Who doesn’t love to add a bit of fancy to their mail!? Plus, the awesome part of the Mint is I only have to ink it once, and I can stamp it up to 50 times…that’s pretty amazing for someone who sends out a ton of mail! I have lots of other shipping stamp ideas that I’m dying to try but there’s one I thought I’d share with you all.
I made this fun little “Please deliver to…” stamp and it’s the perfect accent to the front of an envelope or even a gift box. You can download the .svg file here and create your own. Just in time for the holiday card and gift-giving season!
I can’t wait to make many, many more stamps with my Mint! Let me know if you think of any phrases you’d love to see in my POPPYjack script!
