Now in our 20th year! Since 2002, your old-school website for all things stencils.

Welcome to, home for 1000s of photographs, videos, and more. We never datamine user info nor do we use annoying pop ups to make you subscribe. We do not monetize content and we believe in keeping this project free and open.

How can you support this site (beyond submitting pics, videos, exhibit info, etc.)?

  • Visit the Stencil Archive Support page to purchase a copy of Stencil Nation, take a tour, or donate to this project.
  • Find the Stencil Archives' best original photos on Instagram and flickr.
