I have lots of stencils for signs
I used to store them in cardboad mailing tubes
such as these that I cut to size.
I would put 3 stencils per tube
separated by a sheet of paper in between
and roll them together and put them in the tube
I then typed and printed labels for the stencils
put them in draws
it was becoming impossible to find a stencil quickly
because I have such a large inventory
There is a large support beam down the middle of my studio
I took a wood closet rod, painted it BLACK
hung it between the 2 posts
this space is about 90" wide
I found these metal shower rings
so I used a regular paper hole punch and
punched a hole in the end of each stencil
I have hung them by catagories
ie: Spring, Summer, Holidays etc.
I will make labeled separators
I will be able to have double rods
so LOTS of stencil storage!
Here is a
New England sign I painted
Living in New England
is my favorite THYME of year!
I can now quickly get out all my fall stencils for signs
get to work!
