just got my first set of stencils!!

Post by Perry Noia on Fri Jul 27, 2012 2:22 pm

Yay!! I got my first set of glitter tattoo stencils Very Happy

I did however find that two of my ordered designs weren't in the package Sad
I emailed faketoos about it, is this a regular occurrence? I'm hoping I can still get the missing Pride triangle stencils before Pride fest here in two weeks. I don't have an Irish dance event for a little while yet, so I'm not terribly worried about the claddagh, but I ordered the pride stuff specifically for the pride fest.

Perry, let me know if you hear from Faketoos. I'm not quite sure how quickly shipping is to Canada, but I could send you the pride stencils I have left over.

he said he would send them right out... apparently those two were both on the same sheets so a couple of sheets just got missed or something when it was getting packed up. The other ones came fairly quick so hopefully they will get here before Pride fest. If not, I did get a bunch of other ones for Pride, just that the triangle one is really nice.

Mark (faketoos) is great for fixing up orders. I've never had any missing pages, but one order didn't show up at all and he gave me a coupon code for the amount of the order to use in a future order... which I already used! Just bought like 400 new stencils for a big event!

WooHoo! Congrats on getting your stencils! I just got mine today...only I only ordered 34 designs. Which glitter did you go with? Poof or jar? I got 2 different Y-Body 6 packs.
How are you planning on displaying/storing? I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet...I need to read this section of the forum thoroughly.

In my opinion, best way to store is in a photo box alphabetically and have each of your stencils on a display poster. It keeps them very organized. I also save the backing of each stencil I do so I can count inventory at the end. Sometimes if its not crazy busy I use a tick sheet with the stencils listed so I Can see what ones sell the best and then I know what ones to really make. I always keep a spiral with me to write down what I'm low on and if I get any special design suggestions.

So basically, photo box and poster. Or you can use fishing tackle boxes from Academy. Cheaper than the ones in the craft section and they are the same thing. You can adjust the slots to whatever size the stencils are. Plus They are see through for easy access. I suggest never leave your stencils in the public's hand reach. Especially now with these kits being sold at stores, people will steal. ;(

I've been away from home for a week (at Mooseburger Camp), so I'll try to answer all the questions Wink

I got 6 of each for most of them (that's the smallest amount for each) and 12 of the ones that I felt would be more popular based on what I've seen from Glitterfly's work.

Glitterfly is getting the glitter and glue for me since she has a cheaper source. Probably using brushes with the glitter since that is what she uses.

I've watched how she stores her stencils and seeing the aftermath of what happened when she dropped her photo box of them, I got a little binder with plastic pages with pouches in them from Staples in the section of Martha Stewart stuff to store them and photocopied pages of the designs for a book that they look at to pick from. The binder is also a little more compact than photo boxes.

Here is a link to the designs that I got, hope the link works (it's an album on my facebook page) https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.449687181729518.104095.188881414476764&type=1

I had looked at the little accordion coupon thingys, but the dividers don't go all the way to the bottom, so I worried about them going underneath and getting mixed up that way.

I didn't get the Klingon ones, but I HAD to get the Enterprise one.... it'll probably never sell, but I'll wear it!! LOL

HAHAHAHA!! I DID sell one of the Star Trek ones (might have helped that I was wearing a Star Trek one all weekend... I got a lot of Trekkers commenting on it). Totally sold out of the Pride Triangle one... the rest was just a weird mix.

To be honest, I was hoping for a little more from Pride weekend than we got, but it was a fun weekend overall.
