Hi! I will be making cookies with a logo all in one color, and I want to have a stencil made. Where do I go to do this? It's too detailed for me to do it myself. TIA!!

Do you have a cricut or know someone who does? If that wouldn't work my guess would be someone who either designs logos or embrodiers. You might also check companies who make signs

I'm so glad I saw this! I've been thinking very seriously about starting my own stencil business, but wasn't sure if there was much interest out there! Do you guys think this is something that a lot of "cakers" would go for? TIA!!!

I make cookie stencils with my cricut, that was part of the excitement of getting one in the beginning, now the cutting gumpate explosion!

Anyhow like dandelion56602 said if you know someone with a Cricut and SCAL they can make them for you easily. I buy food grade stencil sheets from confectionary house and amazon.

I don't have a cricut, but I will try to find someone who does. Or I will try the site Edna posted, once I get an email of the logo. Thanks all for your replies!!

Cricut! You might go to a local scrapbooking store and see if they offer pay-per-use on their cricut. There is one in my area that does that with die cutting and such.

If you don't have a cricut or know someone who does,
you might want to look around town for someone who does custom laser cutting and engraving.
usually will be a place that does signs or plaques.
It shouldn't be too expensive if you already have the artwork as that is the most expensive part.
The laser time (the time the laser is actually on to cut the logo) shouldn't be more than a minute or two max depending on the size and intricacy of the logo.

Also how much it costs will depend on how fast you need it and how busy they are.

What settings & blade type do you use when cutting a stencil with the Cricut? I failed miserably when I tried cutting a stencil with my Cricut using the deep housing blade.

For just the clear food stencil sheets no need for the deep cut blade, for a basic design; Depth 6, Speed 3, Pressure 5

For more intricate design; Depth 6, Speed 2, Pressure 4-5

There is an awesome cutting guide that I use it is offered for free from "above rubies studio" it is extremely helpful, she did alot of research. HTH, Andrea
