Definition

A design or pattern created by forcing paint or ink onto a flat surface using a thin sheet of perforated material (also called a stencil).

Things you need to know

Acrylic and latex paints are generally used with stencils since they do not drip as much as other types of paint.

Cost Considerations

Stenciling averages $8 to $11 per square foot ($4,800 to $6,600 for a 12'x18' space).

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
