rubber stamp maker - custom stamps created using mint silhouette
I was totally amazed one day when I went surfing on Amazon to see the latest and greatest in equipment and supplies that can totally take your crafting up to another level and yet save time and energy, which is important for a craft business's bottom line.
I have always used rubber stamps in my mixed media projects for fun and whimsy. This usually consisted of rubber stamps of letters and generic pictures that I would alter, but now you can create your very own designs that can be stamped on everything over and over. This is a really cool option for creating cards, postcards, mixed media, paintings and the list is endless.
This Silhouette Mint, does just that, once you install the software, you can use some designs they have or you can import your very own creations and then using the screen figure out the look you want.
I used to love searching through the rubber stamps at my local craft shop but man they can get expensive and probably many other crafters have that same design. It can get hard to do something original especially when you want to repeat it on a few of your projects.
These are permanent stamps that you attach to a wood block. I think this is a really cool idea for many craft projects such as cards, stationary, anything that you could stamp!
Above is a video review of the Silhouette Mint Custom Stamp Making Machine. This is really cool. I could think of a hundred ideas already that this machine would work for with my craft ideas. You can purchase rubber stamp blanks and carve out your own basic designs, or you could get this machine and create detailed designs that are yours and yours alone.
As with most equipment there is the initial investment. If your arts and crafts projects would include stamping, then why bother getting generic stamps that cost a lot of money from the craft store? Create your very own, whether you alter an image you have the rights to, or you start from scratch the screen helps you decide the look you want before even printing.
Creating your very own homemade rubber stamps could also be a business in itself. You could create designs for others and then create a stamp they can use over and over. Perfect for that rustic logo design that could be stamped on bags when your customers purchase a product or on cards or any packing materials. This is a great way to be original.
Make them for yourself or sell to others. This would be a great way to make crafts for cash.
If you love the idea of rubber stamps, but also need a cutter that cuts stencils or vinyl letters, then consider the Silhouette Cameo Cutter, this too is another great product to help grow your craft business.
You can see by the above sample pictures just how much fun the rubber stamp making can be. You can create a stamp from any picture and make it coloured or simply black and white. The ink supplies also lasts for quite a few stampings before needed to be refilled. This could be a fun little machine.
I think this would be perfect to use if you create your very own craft business logo to stamp on all packaging materials and signs at craft shows, therefore creating your very own brand that is recognized.
