Tell us about your business.

I was working on a plain house with no character and I wanted to create a unique look with stencils w/out spending a lot of money. As an artist, I love to stencil but I found it to be extremely difficult and time consuming; so I invented a stencil that comes on a 15 ft self adhesive roll and sheets to eliminate the lengthy time and common mistakes. My stencils with their adhesive backing will eliminate common mistakes such as bleeding, miss-alignment and drastically reduces the amount of time it takes to stencil a room by 95%. Stencib’s library of designs will allow the consumer to Peel- Stick- Paint- and stand back and say "WOW-Martha would be Proud." My stencils are 100% made in the USA; totally Green, Patent pending and I am a certified Woman owned Business.

What makes your business stand out?

No one has ever developed a 15 foot stencil roll that is self adhesive. The roll allows the consumer to stencil 15 feet at a time and can easily conform to room corners. The design on each roll has a 12” pattern repeat which will allow the consumer to cut pieces for smaller applications. I also have created stencils on a 8”x12”sheet. The sheets can be molded onto unusual structures and surfaces. My stencils can be applied on so many applications such as Fabric, Purses, Boots, Hats, T-Shirts, Glassware-you name it our stencils can be applied. On top of all the great stenciling projects our stencils are made to be used well over 20 times and still maintain their adhesiveness.

What's the best business advice you've received?

My Father told me that most people are good and are willing to help. Be kind and Considerate. And best of all- "Stop Talking about it, and Do It."
