I am in need of a custom monogram stencil in 3 weeks. Is there anyone in the US that does this?
you could get the font you want -- blow it up to the size you need -- trace it onto stencil stock (what do you call stencil paper?) and cut it out yourself -- you can buy a stencil cutter/burner or use the mighty exacto --
another way -- easier and less expensive -- is to take the blown up copy and cover it with wide clear tape on front and back and cut that out -- bam
Yes! I just did that with poster paper for an airbrush stencil and it worked OK>
I think I will try that stencil stock. Where would I get a cutter/burner? Are those better than the mighty Exacto?? :)
better yes maybe because it is a handle with a heated wire sticking out of it -- cuts like buttah -- the sheets are plastic so that might be the name of it stencil sheets -- idk -- but to make matters worse i had some in my hand yesterday but i tossed it 'cause i'm trying to get rid of a bunch of stuff and who wants a partial package of stencil stock -- i mean besides you but anyway i was gonna get the name off it but after i searched all over i remembered i tossed it -- gah -- anyhow michaels or hobby lobby should carry both the heated cutter and the stencil plastic paper stuff --
and check out the different types of cutters you can get because they have some super efficient paper cutters now that might be even better than the heated ones --
best to you -- hope it works out great
