~ ~ ~ ~ OVERVIEW OF OUR SILK SCREEN STENCILS ~ ~ ~ ~

Our silk screen stencils are mesh-based and uses 90 threads per inch screen. These stencils are reusable and do not require "bridges" or breaks in enclosed areas which allows for the seamless creation of stencil using almost any design or font.

~ ~ ~ ~ STENCIL SIZE & MASKING AREA SIZES ~ ~ ~ ~

The minimum size for most designs is 2.0" w x 2.0" h with the mask, and maximum size is 4.0" w x 4.0" h with the mask. All sizes must be in whole, 3-quarter, half or quarter inch.

For each stencil, we include a half inch around the design to create the masking area. For example for a 4.0" w x 4.0" h stencil, the stencil area will be 3.5" w x 3.5" h.

~ ~ ~ ~ USAGE AND APPLICATION TYPES ~ ~ ~ ~

We have personally used and tested one stencil 20 times using etching cream and the stencil was still intact. The manufacturer of the film says it can be used over 100+ times and we believe it to be true as long as you take care of the stencil (see overview video, link provided below).

Our silk screen stencils can be used for etching glass using etching cream, silk screening fabric, and painting glass or wood using enamel acrylic paint. Thin paints will run and not work with a silk screen stencil.

IF USING PAINT: Please be advised, the stencil must be dipped in water immediately after paint is applied. If the paint dries on the stencil, it will clog the screen which will then require the use of a silk screen spray cleaner.

At this time we have not conducted tests for metal etching or sandblasting, and we can not guarantee a stencil's functionality or it's re-usability using any of these types of application methods.

~ ~ ~ ~ HOW-TO / DIY INSTRUCTIONS ~ ~ ~ ~

With every order, our free PDF instructions for etching on glass using glass etching cream and paint will be provided upon the design approval.

To learn more about our silk screen stencils and how to use them, you can view our two YouTube videos:

~ ~ ~ ~ HOW MANY STENCILS WILL I NEED? ~ ~ ~ ~

If you will be processing a small batch of products of 50 or less, one stencil is probably all you will need. However, if you will be working with 50 or more items and depending on your time frame, you may want to purchase one stencil for every 75-100 products, to decrease your overall production time.

~ ~ ~ ~ FONT CHOICES ~ ~ ~ ~

With silk screen stencils, the font choice are endless since they do not require bridges or break. For your review I have compiled a list of my favorite fonts and have a provided the link to the pdf below:

http://www.breefulmelange.com/s/BM_FontList.pdf

Additionally, you can view the fonts on Etsy by viewing images 2-5 of the following listing:

https://www.etsystudio.com/listing/206826301/

Finally, you conduct your own search and provide the font name of your preferred font. Visit http://www.dafont.com or http://www.fontsquirrel.com

Please be advised, thin line fonts may not be suitable for stencils that are smaller than 1.5" w.

~ ~ ~ ~ COMPLETING YOUR ORDER ~ ~ ~ ~

3. Stencil Design Size (min. of 2.0" width or height to a max. of 4.0" width or height) - To determine the size of your stencil, we suggest you cut a piece of paper, place it on the product to test and confirm it is the size that you desire.

FAQs

We have personally used and tested one premium stencil 20 times and the stencil was still intact. The manufacturer of the photo emulsion film says it can be used over 100+ times and I believe it to be true as long as you take care of the stencil. Additionally several clients informed us they were able to etch 100+ glasses using 2 stencils.

For glass etching, if you will be processing a small batch of products of 50 or less, one stencil is all you will need. However, if you will be working with 50 or more items and depending on your time frame, you may want to purchase one stencil for every 75-100 products, to decrease your overall production time. For painting, if are working with acrylic enamel paint, we suggest you purchase 2 stencils for every 50 products. With every order, we provide free instructions in PDF format for 1) using a silk screen stencil with glass etching cream (Armour Etch or Etch All Glass Etching Cream) and 2) using a silk screen stencil with paint. Additionally we have an sample application video on YouTube: http://youtu.be/AVpcTnVkBX8

The production process for the development of a reusable silk screen stencil is more involved than a die-cut stencil. Our pricing for our stencils includes the time for the proof/design creation, materials, labor and our creativity. Additionally we include a pro-rated fee for our usage of electricity and water. ^_^

With every personalized order, we provide 2-3 rounds of revisions. We work with each client until they are satisfied and approve a design for finalization or production. Given the amount of time it can take to revise a design, be it changing the layout, searching for fonts or design elements, we no longer providing digital proofs for free. However. we do offer the option to purchase a $5-$40 digital proof which allows for the preview of a design before an order and for us to be compensated for our time. This fee is non-refundable, but to-date all our clients have moved forward with a purchase.

Some designs are completed in minutes while others are completed in days. The time I put into each piece is reflected in its price. A design that takes me less than 60 minutes to create will be much, much less than one that took me over 8 hours to complete. Additionally, I don't nickel and time my customer and clients, and I always give each project something extra. Each design, even a template design, will be unique to each customer/client. I will usually add some little details or I may inject a whole new twist. Ultimately, my primary objective is to produce a design that is worth of every cent of your money.

Etching with silk screen stencils can have a learning curve for some, which is why we suggest each client conduct beta tests to get practice using both the dry and/or wet application methods. Practice, practice, practice using a couple of test products ^_^. We suggest testing alternate application methods as it allows each user to discovery what works best for their skill set with the products being used. While the PDF instructions and videos are very detailed, and provided as a bonus resource to our clients, they are in no way a one method fits all framework.

Depending on the product, materials used and the user's skill set, one coat of glass etching cream make be all that is necessary or perhaps two coats may be needed. Or perhaps the dry method works better than the wet method, or maybe a different paint works better. We provide free PDF instructions for using glass etching cream and paint, which provides a good foundation for the process. However, we strongly suggest practicing and discover what works best for all the variables of a project.

    Having been to the craft stores and asking everybody, I was so happy that Bree could make the custom stencils for my glasses. Thank you for your thoroughness and patience in getting it exactly right.
