Budget Stencils is the on-line store that offers you a choice from thousands of stencils
ranging from authentic, historic stencils right through to more modern contemporary
designs. You're sure to find a stencil that suits any taste but if by any chance you
don't then you can always e-mail us with your specifications and we can make a bespoke
stencil for you.
All our stencils are made to order and come already cut, although many of the designs
are also available uncut giving you the chance to save money. With uncut stencils the
design is printed on mylar film and with just a little work with a scalpel or a heat pen
you can have the stencil you want for less.
Everything you need for the perfect stencil job is available at Budget Stencils.
We have a great range of acrylic paints and five different sized brushes as well as
spray adhesive and many other paint effect products.
So whether you're an experienced designer or just a stenciling beginner we're certain
you'll find the ideal stencil for your stenciling project.
Don't forget, stenciling is not just limited to walls, almost any surface can be stencilled
and wonderful effects can be achieved on a very limited budget.
Because our stencils are made and cut to order, we can provide a large and
diverse selection of innovative and imaginative designs, many of which have
evolved from suggestions from our customers over the years.
Our stencils are made from high quality polyester film. This has the
advantages of strength and flexibility, ease of cleaning and transparency.
On most stencils there are guide marks to help align the design and ensure
that repeats are regular.
Although the illustrations on these pages, especially the borders, appear
to show stencils being of uniform size, this is merely a graphic device to
aid readability. The dimensions given below each design indicate the true
size. They are given in INCHES (millimeters in parentheses) and the first
dimension is always the height, the second is the width.
2-PART OR MULTILAYER STENCILS
Most of our stencils are simple, one layer designs whrereby the colour
changes are effected through one stencil. If we feel either the design or the
customer would benefit from having more than one overlay for colour
seperation, we have provided it. They are simple to use and registration
marks are provided on the stencil.
ORDER / DESPATCH
All our stencils can be ordered on-line direct from this site and we
despatch to anywhere in the world.
We endeavour to despatch all orders with the upmost speed. Many orders
are processed on the day of receipt and most others we aim to complete
within 5 working days. Delivery is normally dependent on the postal
services of your specific country but for expedited delivery, express courier
services are available for an additional charge.
When used with reasonable care your stencil should last for the duration of
an average project. Following our advice on caring for your stencils will
greatly minimise the risk of damage.
If for any reason you should damage your stencil, regardless of how it
happened, return it to Budget Stencils and we will pay the first 50%
towards the cost of a replacement stencil (must be the identical stencil).
This guarantee can only be used with our own brand stencils, we cannot
guarantee those from other manufacturers.
CARING FOR YOUR STENCIL
To clean your stencil when using acrylic, latex or emulsion paint, cover the
stencil with hot water and let it soak for a few minutes in a flat bottomed
bath or basin. Rub gently with a stencil brush (or finger) to remove the
paint from the holes. To remove oil paint or oil crayons from your stencil,
dab it lightly with a tissue soaked in turpentine. Do not rub.
