Custom Stencil F.A.Q's

How much does a custom stencil cost?
This depends on many factors. It can depend on the size of the stencil needed / the complexity of the design / the material you want it cutting from / Do we have to undertake any design work etc - So each quote will be different depending on these factors.

When we provide a quote to you it will include all costs inc: any design time / cutting time / materials / vat / postage. So you can be sure of the price you will pay.

What are the stencils made out of?
We offer different materials for our custom stencils and we will be able to advise what you need when you tell us about how your stencil will be used.  We offer materials such as Mylar in 125/190/250/350 microns as well as sticky backed vinyl films that can used for etching / sandblasting
So whether you wanting a fine detail stencil for a home project or a stencil for painting signage we have options to suit your needs. 

What sizes of Stencil do you offer?
We can cut stencils in any size. Sometimes designs are too intricate to cut at small sizes, but we can advise of this. Most stencils that we cut range from A4 size size up to A1 or larger. We can cut stencils up to sheet A0 size (84x127cm) in just one piece! But designs over this will need to be split over various sheets. It is worth noting that we don't often cut fonts that are under 10mm in size. 

How long do the Stencils take to make?
Not long at all! We offer a very timely and efficient service.  Most orders can be quoted on and paid for in a matter of a couple of emails. After taking payment your stencil can be ready to dispatch in 2-3 working days. For a surcharge we can process quicker, depending on work load.
Can you edit the designs so they are stencil friendly?

Yes we can. We work with all sorts of clients, some who are not as computer savvy as others. We like to pride our custom stencil service on being very user friendly.

We just ask that you provide us with the best design file you have - high resolution jpg or pdf file preferred. We will always work with your files to produce the best cut stencil we can. We are happy to add edits into your designs so that they are stencil friendly.

If you don't have a design but have an idea in mind then explain it as best you can in terms of layout and design, or send us a sketch and we can design from that. We will always do our best for you. 

Can I return my Custom Stencil?
Unfortunately because each stencil is specifically made to order we cannot accept returns. During the order process we work with you to ensure you are happy with the stencil design before you commit to buy. 

Do you post overseas?
Yes we can.  We are happy to post our custom stencils overseas and we often do. We will normally ask for you to pay for a tracked service and you must understand that items posted overseas are often subject to delays on the way.
