Having hand-cut her own stencils for years, Mary Beth Shaw dipped her toe into the stencil design business in 2010. Expanding StencilGirl to team up with other artists is the fulfillment of her dream to provide the highest quality artist designed stencils for the mixed media world. Artists who know and love stencils, and use them regularly design StencilGirl stencils. The stencils are thick enough to be strong and long lasting, yet thin enough to provide a seamless look. These stencils are also laser cut using 7 mil mylar, a plastic film that is heat resistant. Mary Beth personally tests every single stencil for the strength of its design!
