Stencils

What you’re seeing below is the result of using vinyl to make custom stencils and not the vinyl itself.

This was a poured concrete floor. The tan color is the tinted concrete and everything else is paint. For this logo area we cut a stencil and stuck it to the concrete. Then it was painted in and the vinyl pulled up. Simple as that. You end up with very clean lines.

This same procedure could be done on a wall or any other smooth surface. Stencils can be cut for sandblasting or chemical etching as well.  (Un-stencil related: There is also a semi-transparent vinyl that looks etched already. It can be cut ornately for a front door window or give privacy to your bathroom window.)

Custom stencils can be cut for making tee shirts as well. This would be a unique party idea. Buy your cut stencils and some fabric paint and your party animals each get to give the DIY treatment to their own shirt.

Decorative Ideas

You can change the look of any room with vinyl.

The tile in this bathroom was a ugly mottled green. Now it’s new and improved green.

Here’s a lovely window topper. Imagine it with the lovely curtain that is not yet purchased.

Hmm… what else….

How about supporting your favorite sports team or other organization.  Home address plates. Or a fleur de lis on your kitchen cabinets. Tag your laundry room door (or even the man cave). Large colorful graphic murals for the kid’s room.

Signs! Signs! Everywhere there’s signs!

Some examples of what we do most commonly. Sheetmetal is a very good material to use for backing. It comes in a few colors and is very sturdy and holds the vinyl very well.

That’s a big boy about 5 feet wide on the exterior of the building.
