I recently purchased s Silhouette Mint because I love stamping and I also make a lot of handmade cards. I have been wanting a custom stamp for a long time, but I hadn't gotten around to sending my design out to have it done. So before I ordered this, I read a ton of reviews because it's on the expensive end and it has a really specialized function, so I wanted to be certain. Also this would be my first Silhouette machine, I have a Cricut Explore that I love, so I was not sure what to expect. I can honestly say I'm very impressed! The machine is very compact and lightweight, it comes with 2 stamps/stamp kits, 4 ink colors, 1 month of Silhouette Studio, and a software CD. I have a Mac and downloaded the software from the website.
The included stamps are 30mm x 30mm and 15mm x 60mm. I used the rectangle to make a stamp for my website. The directions are very easy to follow and I was creating my stamp in about 10 minutes. The design software is easy to navigate and reminds me of Cricut Design Space, so I was comfortable after a few minutes. I printed my stamp and then removed it from the clear wrapping.
Each set comes with a wood block to mount your stamp to and labels you can stamp to identify your image.
I inked up my stamp and only had a little trouble because my letters are so small, I'm going to ink it again later to see if that helps even out the image.
I'm very happy that I bought this and I would recommend getting a few more stamps when you have a chance as this only comes with two. Also there are additional ink colors available, I ordered magenta when I ordered my machine. Each stamp will imprint about 50 times before you have to re-ink it, so far I've stamped about 20 images and it still looks good. If your craft budget allows, definitely get one, happy crafting.
