Custom Stencils

Custom stencil for cake spray decoration

Laser cut, custom stencils for any purpose at a great price.  We laser cut your stencil designs from mylar, a robust, flexible polyester film. Mylar is used as it has a high tensile strength therefore it can be washed and re-used.

For one off bespoke stencils or wholesale orders, our stencils we cut logo stencils for branding, furnature stencils, alphabet and number stencils, sign stencils, packaging stencils, grafitti stencils, food safe stencils for coffee and cakes, decorative stencils and many ore applications.

Getting a good result:

For the best results use a stippling brush or roller to produce your stencil. An air brush or paint can can be used but you risk underspray. Sometimes spraying is the most convenient for a large area and you can touch up the underspray by hand after.
