Stencils For Fabric & Art

A stencil is essentially a containment area for paint to go through. In other words, stencils prevent paint from going were its not supposed to go and give instant form and volume to a motif or shape.

Many people don't realize is that "wall stencils" can be used for many other purposes than simply applying designs to a wall a stencil that is called a wall stencil can actually be used to paint fabrics, t-shirts gift cards, furniture, and canvas as well.

The only reason that something might be tagged as a "wall stencil is that the design may be to large for use on a garment. That is really the only difference.

Our stencils are made from 127 micron or 7mil polyester film, which for all practice purposes is the same material as drafting film or Mylar. The flexibility and thickness of this type of film makes it ideal is ideal for creating images on just about any material or surface that can accept water based paint.

Laser Cut Stencils Vs Hand Cut Stencils

Just about any stencil that can be cut by hand can also be cut by a laser machine. The difference between the two methods are, speed, accuracy and cost.

A complex stencil that would take an hour to cut by hand, can easily be completed in under a minute by laser. Unfortunately really large stencils, say four feet long or bigger require large laser machines and that's were cost comes into the picture.

In these situation it may be more cost effective to cut the stencil by hand, especially where the actual design is of simple yet large basic shapes. Hand cut stencils can be every bit as accurate as a laser cut equivalent and of course it depends on the skill and patience of the person doing the cutting.
