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.

call for stencil art

Début Publications currently have an open call for entries for silhouette ansd stencil artwork. We have seen some of the work o this website and it fits in perfectly with the theme and content of artwork that we will be showcasing and so we would like to offer all stencil artists the opportunity to submit some of their artwork for inclusion. There is normally a small fee payable for submitting artists - this is to cover our administration - but as we are approaching you to include artwork we would waiver these fees.

Almost six months have passed since our last Mini Graff update email - how time flies! Since then, I have completed several independent art projects, commmisions and workshops.
