How to use the Custom Confection Stencil Designer

  1. Add Text

    Type in the box provided and it will display in the design board as it will show on your stencil, Dimensions are also shown, Input as you want it to be seen with upper and lower case, spaces, punctuation, and line returns. We will use your spelling as it appears so be sure to check for errors. Many of our customers want things spelled in unusual ways, so we have to go with your spelling.

  2. Select Font

    Choose from our selection of decorative and classic fonts. For smaller stencils use Arial or Script fonts, as these can go down to ½ inch in size. The rest of the fonts are available from ¾ inch to 3 inches. If you have a special font that you need please use our Request a custom stencil quote form.

  3. Letter height

    This represents the nominal height of the font and is measured from baseline to cap-height (bottom of the capital letter to the top of the capital letter). If you need smaller or larger sizes please use the Request a Custom Stencil Quote form

    Letter Height

  4. Check Dimensions

    As you select the letter height you will notice that the dimensions of your material and the text will change automatically. The total dimensions of the complete text are shown as well as the resultant size of the stencil (including the border). Make sure this fits your cookie or cake where you want to use the stencil. We cannot know the size of your cookie, so you have to check. We have standardized our smallest stencils on the 5 ¾ inch x 5 ¾ inch square stencil. This is the default stencil size until the artwork is too big ( say for a cake). If you have a specific size of stencil that you want please let us know in the notes ( for example you want a 9 inch round stencil for a cake.)

  5. Alignment

    Only necessary if there are more than one line of text.

  6. Approval

    Review the final result. There are no returns on custom stencils for mistakes on your design.


    • Check spacing and punctuation.

    • CHECK DIMENSIONS. (NOTE: IF you have a stencil that requires EXACT dimensions please let us know, by adding a requires in the notes. There is a small amount of error in how the app sends artwork to our machines (no more the 5% in the dimensions), but we can provide EXACT dimensions if needed.

    • Choose the quantity of stencil copies that you need. We are really efficient and making copies and our prices are excellent.

    • Let us know if you want an email preview of the stencil prior to production. (The proof will look exactly like what is in the Design Board. However we can provide exact dimensions if that is important to you.
