Who are we?
Ideal Stencils Ltd is based in the U.K, in a small village called Driffield, close to the East Yorkshire coast. We have a fresh and creative outlook that shows in the design of our broad selection of home decor and craft stencils. A Stencil is a simple yet inspiring and versatile tool that makes the whole process of decorating and carrying out decorative projects creative, fun and rewarding.
Half of the Ideal Stencils Dream Team! Unbelievably and fatefully, stencils found me, while I was at university studying fine art... I cant believe to this day how lucky I am and the journey that we have come on to grow the business to where we are today! I'm always busy designing new stencils, running our 'Custom Stencils Service' and still being inspired every day. In my spare time I love late evening jogs around the village and playing my guitar. Thanks for looking, If you have any questions then just contact us... BIG thanks for finding us and nice to meet you!
The other half of the dream team! I have been with Marcus right from the start and am also SO proud of where we are today. We work together every day with a big smile to bring you fresh, creative stencil designs. When I'm not cutting and packing orders I am enjoying growing our new Instagram account (@idealstencils) and love to see all the inspirational home decorating projects our stencils get used for. Please follow us and connect with me there and lets chat more x See you soon!
How it all began
It was whist at University studying for a Fine Art Degree that Marcus 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 (see image right). 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.
Custom Stencil service
We also offer an affordable custom stencil cutting service, which can turn your ideas however large or small into stencils. Stencils are widely used by businesses for marking/labeling and signage and we also get a lot of custom logo stencil requests. We have worked with many people from artists to shop owners, teachers, furniture restorers and clothes designers, to create stencils for their specific needs via our custom cutting service. So get in touch with us today for a quotation.
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.
