I love packages. It’s like opening a gift except I know what’s inside. 😀
I’ve had my eye on the Silhouette Mint every since I saw it at CHA a few months ago. I was actually really tempted to purchase the original Casio Pomrie version a while back but word on the street was that refills were really hard to get. I saved my impulse purchase for the Mint and I’m glad I did! The results are much better than I expected.
The Mint is a thermal printer that uses blanks or “refills”. It’s more of a self-inking stamp than the rubber/clear style we’ve come to know and love in the paper crafting world. I’m planning on trying out some other ink options with the Mint stamps. The Silhouette inks are decent but the colors aren’t as intense as I expected.
Another surprise was that the Mint doesn’t use Silhouette Studio…. you’ll learn more about that in the video.
