What is a custom stencil?
A custom stencil is where the stencil maker takes your design, logo or image and converts it into stencil format.
Custom stencils, also known as bespoke or personalised stencils, are made in varying thicknesses of material. We use polyester film, tradename Polymex or Mylar.
Your image is converted into a digital vector file which is uploaded onto a laser cutting machine and your stencil is laser cut leaving holes in the material of your text or image. We add little bridges to ensure the centres of letters or designs don't fall out.
From small letters to covering a large wall, you can reproduce your design on most interior or exterior surfaces with spray paint, ink or even plaster. Your stencil can be reused allowing you to repeat the image or re-apply on a different surface. Your stencil will last a long time but can be recycled. (Check with your local authority).
We've over 20 years experience and, certainly with this project, are often the only stencil maker able to take on this high a volume and as logistically challenging.
