I need to make stencils from my svg designs. What material would you use? 

Thanks, 

Ilene

Hi Ilene!

Our most popular materials for stencils are 0.5mm PETG (which is clear/see through) or 0.5mm Styrene.

Cheers!

Thanks, Josh, it's been a while! If the sample I'm doing works out, I'll be back on the elevated service!

Oops! Just checked the materials page - both are .020 and the PETG is also .030. How do I get the 0.50 material? is this special order only or will one of the other sizes work for stencils?

Hi Irene - sorry, I was talking in mm, not inches. 0.020 is what you want. =)
