American Flag, Rock Stars, Star, Ice Cream.

Our stencils are designed by us and laser cut on a durable, washable, and reusable mylar material in order to provide a long lasting product our customers deserve. Not only are our stencils top quality, they are also Made in America!

Stencil1, since it’s launch in 2004, has manufactured all of it’s Stencil1 stencils in the USA. Being able to say Made in America on our products is something we are proud of. We also think it gives our customers a sense of comfort in knowing exactly where and how the product is made.

When asked by the team at Martha Stewart’s American Made, What does being American made mean to you? Owner, Ed Roth, had this reply:

“American Made means everything. We started here in Brooklyn, NY & there are many opportunities provided to small business owners in America. We took advantage of free advisors, free legal services and more to start our business. American made starts with the American dream and for me that was to find freedom in doing my own thing. I started Stencil1 with an idea to make stencils that were modern, eclectic, & different and soon enough I had an online business running. I started by stuffing stencil orders in envelopes from my home! I then got some great press which lead to stores calling and wanting to carry my line. My line? I don’t even have packaging, I told the buyers. They said “figure it out, we want it”. I did. All these elements are a part of the American business – our value of press, our industrial capabilities, our vast love of technology, our freedom to use all of these resources. Stencil1 has now been in business for 10 years and all of our product is American Made.” Read more

GAG! Custom Political Stencils

A group making major headlines - GAG, or Gays Against Guns – asked us to create some custom stencils with their messaging, we jumped right in and made them three different stencils that they later made DIY  t-shirts with. (Photos from GAG).

Stencil1 Artist-In-Residence at Levi’s – a Great Success!

Ed Roth, designer and owner of Stencil1, has done a week long artist-in-residence with Levi’s. The New York  Soho store hosted Ed and he provided customer’s free customization of their items with his iconic stencils and specialty EQUALITY stencil set introduced for the event.  T-shirts, denim jackets, and jeans – no surface was off-limits to get it’s own special touch added to it. Roth offered skulls to rainbows and people seemed thrilled to walk away with a one-of-a-kind item made while they watched.  Check out an assortment of images below of customer’s and their custom items and for many more images head to the Stencil1 Facebook page and see the gallery we posted.

Not-so Blue, Levi’s® Blue Jeans

Levi's Stenci1 Pants

The simplest details can make the biggest difference. In partnership with Levi’s®, we transformed the 501® Original Fit Jeans into something completely bold and unique without the use of stencils in preparation for our In-Store Artist-In-Residence!

Things you will need: A pair of blue jeans and paint and a paint brush.

First, fold up the bottom of your jeans to your desired length.

Levi's Stencil1 Denim Jeans

With the color of your choice. Load up your brush. Here we’re using Vermilion by Pebeo.

Once you’re done painting. Allow the paint to fully dry before wearing them.

That’s it! This is a subtle way to stand out. Be sure to pair your new jeans with an awesome statement shirt to go along with it.
