A few months back, I posted a video where I tested several different, non-Silhouette brand inks with a stamp made with the Silhouette Mint custom stamp maker. My initial results were a pleasant surprise, and I discovered that, yes, you can use non-Silhouette inks with Mint stamps. Woohoo!
This video is a follow-up to the first video, which you’ll want to check out if you haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. In this video follow-up, I retest a couple of inks that had promising initial results, as well as some inks that I didn’t test the last time around.
I’m happy to report that I can highly recommend four types of ink to use with Silhouette Mint stamps, in addition to the Mint brand inks themselves. These other inks allow for many, many different stamping possibilities and will give you more options than exclusively using the Silhouette Mint brand inks would.
Check out the video below to see my results and to find out which inks I recommend for Silhouette Mint stamps:
