Custom Stencils

All you need to know to design and order your stencils

What is a custom stencil?

Custom stencils are made to order from your logo or design. We make wall, logo, street, clean graffiti, bodyart or self adhesive vinyl stencils for branding projects, advertising campaigns or event promotion.

Ordering a custom stencil is easy, simply send us your logo or artwork we'll take your image, convert it into a cutting file and recreate your design for spray-painting onto walls or other interior or exterior surface. We can quote to make a stencil in whatever size you require. There is no limit.

Custom stencils, also known as bespoke or personalised stencils, are made in varying thicknesses of material. We recommend and make stencils in reusable polyester film, tradename Polymex, also known as Mylar. 

We've masses of experience over our 20 years working with agencies, designers and specifiers and clients attest that we are often the only stencil maker able to handle high volumes and to take on the logistically challenging.
