anyone know where you get stencils /or stamps made? i have a fairly detailed logo that i wouldn't mind experimenting with on apple crates, brown cardboard packaging
I've used this company a few times for stamps
https://www.speedystamps.com.au and have always been happy with the results.
I know it might not be much use being up here in the UK but these guys make some corkers and quite large sizes too.
If you're handy at carving you can also make your own.
Also, if you're marking wood there are branding irons that you can get custom made too.
(quick Google search)
A good way of making stencils is to plot them on a vinyl cutter in the same way as you would when making signs but in reverse (obviously).
The graff company I work for use them all the time for speed/detail and they work great.
AWESOME - as usual.
i'd love to be handy -
how detailed can you go with vinyl stencils??
::how detailed can you go with vinyl stencils??::
You can get a lot of detail.
They're used a lot for short run, one colour t-shirts.
Only problem is that you have to pick out the areas you want to be visible which can be a bit time consuming. Also you need a new stencil for each time you use them.
