Silhouette Mint vs Casio Pomrie Stamp Maker

Yesterday, the Silhouette Mint was released and it made a bit of a splash, but does it live up to the hype? After some research, it seems the Mint is identical to an existing machine already on the market, the Casio Pomrie Stamp Maker. Let’s see the difference between the Mint and the Casio Pomrie.

Silhouette Mint vs Casio Pomrie  Stamp Maker – Is it the same machine?

I can’t say for sure, but from the specs and looks of it, the Mint and Pomrie do seem like the same machine.

Take a look at the Pomrie…

Casio Pomurie Stamp Maker STC-U10

Looks awfully familiar, and both have a max cutting size of 45mm×90mm (1 3/4″×3 1/2″). If it looks like a Pomrie, and works like a Pomrie, then it’s probably is a Pomrie.

It appears the Pomrie Stamp Maker machine was released last year in Japan, and has just become available in the United States on Amazon.

What do you think? Is it the same machine? Leave us a comment!

  1. Yes they do seem like very similar machines! However I think what will set the Silhouette Mint apart will be their software. Being a silhouette user I’m already very familiar with their software and have a huge library of designs from their online store. This machine looks like so much fun!

    • I wouldn’t doubt that Silhouette America had some type of agreement with Casio where they bought the rights to the machine. I think it might even be the same software (or at least very similar), just rebranded. I think that would make the most business sense.

      There weren’t that many reviews on Amazon Japan for the Casio, which makes me think it wasn’t too popular over there. Perhaps Silhouette believes they can do a better job marketing it, but didn’t want to spend the money recreating a new machine from scratch.

  2. I own a Pomrie and would be very interested if this is just a rebranded Pomrie. Mostly because those expensive stamp blanks are extra hard to get outside of Japan, and expensive consumables are expensive, which limits my ability to stock up when I do encounter them.
    That said, they must have done a number on the software – when I bought one in Japan, you could only hook up to a PC, but the app, if you had the wifi version, was iPhone/Pad only. Additionally, the wifi version makes its own wifi, so it’s not a device that pops up on your home network like a printer, you actually have to switch your wifi from home to Pomrie while operating the device. These are quirks that fly in Japan (although I imagine the wifi thing took a few crafters for a loop) but not here. And it goes without saying everything was in Japanese. I imagine there was quite a bit of work to do on the software end.
