Stencil1 Made Their Mark!


Stencil1 loves partnering with other companies to curate fun DIY events– especially if it means having to help those in need! Yesterday, Stencil1 spent the evening along with Housing Works to provide a charity event, raising funds for the homeless and people living with HIV/AIDS.

Ed Roth, founder of Stencil1, instructed the crowd on how-to stencil their items. Guests had a blast painting t-shirts, posters, and more using our stencil designs!

Here are some pictures from the event!

Valentine’s Day at the Soho Beach House


Recently, we had another all ages event with the Soho Beach House for a Valentine’s Day DIY day.
The turn-out was mostly Mom’s with their children, ages 3-8 and everyone loved having some craft
time with our Valentine’s Day stencils.

Some made cards with messages of LOVE, others painted shirts with some fabric paint.


The ClearSnap ink pads in gold silver, black, red and pink were a huge hit. They are so easy to use with our stencils because you can’t overload your brush (or in this case sponge). Even the 3 year olds got the hang of it! Some parents said they even already owned some of our stencil books and ClearSnap inks!

Stencil1 x Levi’s Meatpacking Men’s Fashion Week Event


On January 25th, 2017, Stencil1 joined Levi’s at their specialty store in the Meatpacking District, NYC for a press event for Men’s Fashion Week.

Founder and designer, Ed Roth and his creative staff customized the new 512 cut of men’s jeans to people’s liking with monogram stencils and Roth’s trendy icons of hearts, swallows, skulls and anchors. Some applications were subtle like a small icon stenciled on the inner part of the front pocket. Others went bold and cheeky with words stenciled across the front of the fly.


“It’s always rewarding to partner with such a respected American heritage brand and also to offer people customization with Levi’s who champion individuality” says Roth. “The brands we partner with seem to want to do more than just show or provide the latest item, these customization events further engage the consumer.”

Stencil1 + Levi’s + CRUSHfanzine – adding meaning to a party


Last night, we had a three-hour stenciling party with Levi’s in their Meatpacking shop and it was a fun one. Ed Roth, owner and designer of Stencil1, created custom stencils with messages such as LOVE, COME TOGETHER, and LOVE NEVER FAILS as well as provided some iconic Stencil1 designs for people to choose form and have their tote bags or denim customized. The event was put together to showcase the newly re-designed Levi’s® Meatpacking Store, featuring exclusive pieces fromthe Levi’s® Vintage Clothing, Levi’s® Made & Crafted, and Levi’s® Authorized Vintage collections.

“I designed and cut some of these stencils with messages of love right before the event day and hoped people would like them as many were disappointed and worried after the election. The event became emotional for me as many people told me why they liked these messages of love as well as said things like they needed this right now. It went from a leisurely creative event to something of more substance.”

All the paint used was provided by Pebeo, their fabric paint helped to customize tote bags, denim vests, trucker jackets, and even a leather jacket.  High quality paints, we recommend them.

CRUSHfanzine was the media sponsor and invited a great group of people. See some pics of the event-goers below and visit the Stencil1 Facebook page to see many more. Photos by Sebastian Jimenez.


The night ended with a taste tequila from the liquor sponsor,  Blue Nectar Tequila.

The Levi’s® Store Meatpacking is located at 414 West 14th NYC, NY 10014

Cheers and thank you to all who came together!
