How it all began:

It was whist at University studying for a Fine Art Degree that I (Marcus: Director) discovered street art and stencils as an exciting and fast moving art form. It was a revelation that one simple stencil could produce the exact same image over and over again. This realisation drove my art practice and I never looked for another form of image making other than the stencil. 

Our business originally started out as 'Stencil Style Art' selling hand stenciled and spray painted canvas art, of famous/iconic imagery. After a while there came more and more requests for me to supply just the stencils by themselves. Stencils, it turned out had a million and one other uses both decorative and practical. Ideal Stencils was born and now stencils is solely what we design, produce and sell.

We love what we do and hope to be designing, cutting and supplying stencils for years to come. Thanks for visiting our site and if we can be of any help just let us know.
