hey y’all ! i made a stencil a while ago out of a thin-ish plastic and an exacting knife. worked really well but i just left it out in my backyard on a table and it got pretty beat up. anyone have any recommendations on keeping them ? maybe in some sort of sleeve or something ?
I've had good luck with cardboard and binder clips. Just find a slab of cardboard thats big enough to fold in half and still cover the stencil. Alternately, depending on the size of the stencil, you could find two seperate, large pieces of cardboard or posterboard. Then binder clip around the edges to keep it closed and hold the stencil in place. Be sure the stencil is dry before sandwiching it between cardboard, but otherwise it's pretty simple and has worked well for me.
