In 1991, friends and campus radio enthusiasts Randy Iwata and Bill Baker founded Mint Records Inc., an indie label based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Their vision was to create a company that celebrated the all the fantastic talent they saw in Vancouver. Since its birth in 1991, Mint has put out over 130 releases by such artists as The Organ, Neko Case, The New Pornographers, cub, Lou Barlow, The Sadies, P:ano, The Buttless Chaps, Pansy Division, and The Smugglers, to name a few.

In just the past five years, Mint has grown significantly, more than doubling its staff, with half a dozen people working out of the newly expanded Vancouver office, and an office based in Toronto. Mint also recently started up Mintunes Inc., an arm of the label tasked with administering publishing for both Mint and non-Mint artists, and with more aggressively developing the label's presence in the area of music licensing.

With its international distribution and presence expanding every year, Mint Records Inc. is currently laying the groundwork for its future stars. Recent releases include The Pack a.d., Novillero, Kellarissa, The Awkward Stage, Duplex!, The Handsome Family, Vancougar, Young And Sexy, Immaculate Machine, Juno nominee Carolyn Mark, Hot Panda, and many more!
