Does anyone have a good source for stencil material the type I need is either clear or light tinted. The material is the type found in craft shops or Hobby lobby or Michaels. The thickness is similar to that of wall stencils. Any help would be great

My local plastic supplier has polycarbonate in .015", .020", or .030 thicknesses that would work.


Seems like most plastic suppliers would have it though, I know of 4-5
other places around here that sell it. Available in clear or matte (sort of like frosted).

Try graphixplastics dot com they sell polyester film for lasers and will send you a "very healthy" sample kit I got a folder with their two brands in it had several thicknesses and colors with full sheet samples. Phone 1-800-447-2349 they're out of Cleveland.

That link didn't seem right. It took me to a Find:It site.

I just tried it and it worked for me. grafixplasticsdotcom.
did I spell it wrong in tyhe prevoius post? Anyway if you are interested in stencil materials these are really nice. I highly recommend you ask for a sample pack, has in the range of 20 8.5 x 11 sheets.

Got it. First time it was spelled with a 'ph' instead of an 'f'
