***** I AM CURRENTLY AWAY *****
You may still purchase items but I will not be able to fulfill any orders until I return.
I plan to be back on Thursday, January 14th (hopefully a day earlier). I'm having surgery and it all depends on how I'm feeling.
Thank you soooooo much for your understanding and patience.

What Size Are Your Stencils?

I'm limited to cutting on 8.5" x 11" (and of course, 11" x 8.5") sheets. Actual image sizes on those sheets vary by design. I do larger stencils, but it requires me to use multiple sheets with slight overlay on the cut out pieces to make it easy to line them up and paint them one at a time. ^Top



Can You Do Larger Stencils?

Yes, as mentioned above, but it requires me to use multiple sheets with slight overlay on the cut out pieces -- this makes it easy to paint one, then line up the next sheet and paint it, wash-rinse-repeat :) Click here to see an example of a multi-sheet stencil. ^Top



What Material Do You Use?

I use quality Stencil Blanks / Sheets available for purchase only from Hobby Lobby (SHOW OFFS brand). They are 0.2mm thick. They are NOT the cheap flimsy paper thin transparency sheets I've seen used before. I've bought other blank sheets to use that were less expensive, but they were nowhere near as good as these -- so this is all I use. ^Top



Are Your Stencils Reusable / Can I Use Them More Than Once?

Yes. I've used ones I've made for my own crafting MANY times over and over. If you choose to clean them, water and soap and a sponge right after painting. DO NOT use solvents to clean them. ^Top



How Do CUSTOM REQUESTS Work?

Just contact me. I'll respond and we can go from there and correspond via email. Once I have the information I need I'll work up a draft in Photoshop and send it to you for comments and/or approval. Once you are happy with the draft, I cut it, photograph it, list it in my store as a custom order for you, and send you a direct link to purchase. THERE IS NO COMMITMENT. If you change your mind, you change your mind. Depending on the complexity, I can usually turn around custom orders in a day or two with little to no markup in price. ^Top



How Much Do You Charge For Custom Requests?

It all depends on the complexity of the design and how much time I have to spend designing it. I am VERY fair. 90% of the custom requests I receive are sold for my standard stencil rate of $11.62-$13.62 with no extra markup. ^Top



Will You Sell My Custom Stencil To Anyone Else?

Not if you don't want me to. 8 times out of 10, custom requests are specific to the person asking for them...meaning, no one else would want it (e.g., your last name, etc.). However, there are times where a custom request is a GREAT IDEA :) And yes, in those cases, I have added the design to my inventory; however, I would not do that without your permission on any original designs I create for you. ^Top



How Do You Ship The Stencils?

Stencils are shipped USPS First Class (free of charge to you). If you need it faster, contact me. I package each stencil between sheets of heavy card-stock and place them inside a 12.5" x 9.5" Self Seal White Photo Stay Flats Cardboard Envelope Mailer. ^Top



How Long Will It Take To Get My Stencil / How Fast Do You Ship?

I ship Monday-Friday, same or next day. Any orders placed mid-Friday or on Saturday or Sunday will be mailed on Monday morning. The only exception is when I'm on vacation or traveling on business, and when I am, I clearly indicate this on the product pages so you are aware of the delay prior to your purchase. ^Top



Do You Ship Internationally?

Sorry, no. At this time we only process orders within the United States. If you are outside of the United States and are interested in one or more stencil, contact me. I can point you to my eBay store where I also sell stencils. On eBay, I make use of the eBay Global Shipping Program. This means that even though I don't charge for shipping, eBay will charge you separately at checkout for the international shipping fee. I ship (free of charge) to their global shipping facility and they handle all the rest. This can be a little pricey -- so if you're wanting more than one stencil, be sure to contact me so I can bundle them into a single eBay listing and help reduce the fee they charge. ^Top
