Why create a custom stencil?
A custom stencil allows you to create your design or message in a format that can be reused again and again. It can be designed for you by our Graphic Designers or we can use your artwork and adjust it to make it suitable for the creation of a stencil.
Once you have your stencil you can brush, spray, jet-wash, roller or sponge it giving you a huge range of effects and finishes.
A custom stencil will generally be made from Mylar plastic in a thickness varying from 125 to 500 microns (1-2mm food safe plastic for coffee stencils) and as such will be washable and reusable many times as long as it is looked after.
Once we have done the artwork for your stencil you can scale it up or down and order different sizes with ease to allow you to put your design in all sorts of spaces!

What do we need to create one?
Very little really, although the more information we have the easier it will be. At a minimum, we need a description of what you want and the size you want it, so that we can write the text or create the artwork for the stencil to be cut from (please remember that to keep a stencil in proportion it may not fit the space you have available in all dimensions as it may reach the max height before it does the width - or vice versa).
The process of producing your stencil - what we do and what we need you to do!
Before we do any work we will send you a free quote for your stencil and we will not start work without your authorisation.
Once you have accepted our quote we will design your stencil and send you a pdf file of the artwork for approval. We will make minor adjustments to this for free at this stage.
When you have approved the design this will then go into the workshop for cutting and despatch. This usually will be done within a working day unless we are exceptionally busy or the stencil is very large/many copies are needed.
Normal delivery is by signed for First Class Royal Mail but larger or heavier parcels may need to go via Courier. We will tell you if this is the case. Conversely we can do overnight guaranteed delivery so if you are in a hurry let us know when you need your stencil by.
