Custom Lettering Services


Custom Stencil Lettering Samples


Words, sayings, quotations... now you can personalize your space with custom lettering. With a stencil, you can choose just the right paint color to match your decor - plus, you can use it over and over again!

Ordering is easy...

1. Choose the font that you would like. We can create custom word stencils using most fonts. Search the web. Many free fonts are available online and can be found by searching for free fonts. (We like: www.dafont.com) Just let us know where to download the font, then we can take it from there. We will even purchase a font for you if you can't find what you want with a free download.

2. Determine the size of the area where you are going to stencil the lettering. This is important! Remember, lowercase letters, such as p and y, drop below the baseline thus increasing the overall height of the lettering. We can also scale the lettering to fit within your dimensions. Just let us know your dimensions and we will supply a price quote based on the size of the letters used.

3. Order your custom lettering stencil. We cannot start working on your design until you have officially placed your order. Don't worry - we will work with you to get just the right stencil. We will provide you with an email proof with measurements. Once you approve the proof, we add bridges (so the center of the letters like o,p,e, etc don't fall out) and cut the stencil. Generally, we use our seven mil stencil plastic which gives you a nice, sharp paint edge. If you are going to be spray painting or using the stencil repeatedly, you should consider upgrading to our 10mil plastic which is more durable and can withstand more scrubbing when cleaning. Please let us know your application and plastic preference when submitting your stencil for a quote.

4. How much does it cost? As a rough estimate, our custom lettering stencil prices are based on the height of the capital letter, 50 cents per inch in height, plus a $15 set-up fee. For example, "A Touch of Class" in 2 inch lettering would cost $13 + $15 set-up fee with our standard seven mil plastic. for our 10 mil plastic, there is a 20% surcharge. There is a discount for longer sayings, so provide us with what you want and the general size space that you want it to fill and we will price it for you. 

Just email us or call 800-822-7836, and let us know how we can assist you with a custom word stencil!
