ARE THESE ADHESIVE, SILK SCREEN STENCILS?
No, the stencils we sell are not like silk screen stencils. They are made with 10mil mylar which is a stiff plastic type material. (no adhesive on the back). They can be washed easily and used over and over again. They are durable and will last a long time if cared for properly.
CHOOSING THE BEST SIZE OF STENCIL:
It’s helpful to know the size of your board or frame before choosing the stencil size. The dimensions listed on each of our stencils refers to the overall size of the actual design or lettering - not the outer edge of the stencil material. Choose a board size that will be a little larger than the design size. If you are unsure; contact us and we can help suggest an appropriate size.
WHAT TOOLS DO I NEED?
STENCILING ON WOOD:
A smooth, sanded surface works best! Paint the wood first if desired and make sure the base coat of paint is very dry and hardened before attempting to stencil. If stenciling light colors over dark colors; try using a thicker paint such as chalk paint for better coverage. (still use really light coats repeating as necessary)
STENCILING ON FABRIC:
WASHING YOUR STENCIL:
STORING YOUR STENCIL:
Try to store your stencil laying flat to avoid causing it to curl or bend. Tip: Lay it between two pieces of cardboard to help protect it.

If tracking info shows that your order has not been delivered yet; after 14 days; please let us know by email or phone. We will consider shipping out a new order/replacement. *If you purchased Shipping Protection with your order; then you would qualify for a free replacement on lost orders. (*within 30 days of the original order date). If you did not have Shipping Protection; then a shipping/handling fee of $10 will apply to replacement orders.
TRACKING SAYS "DELIVERED" but I did not receive my package:
If the USPS tracking says "delivered" but you did not receive your shipment; please take the following steps:
1. Check the shipping address on your invoice to make sure it was sent to the correct address.
2. Check with other neighbors to see if they received the package by mistake. (this happens a lot)
3. Check with household members to see if they received the package and put it somewhere in the house.
4. Ask at your local post office to see if they can verify where it was delivered. (provide them the tracking #).
If you have followed the above steps and are unable to locate the package; it would then be treated as stolen mail.
