The Simple Stencil Review and Giveaway**CLOSED


The Simple Stencil was started by mom-preneur Jennifer.

I am a stay at home working mom who developed my business slowly over the last 5 years when my son was born and I wanted to find a way to work at home. I had used the vinyl lettering personally in my home for years and decided to see if it appealed to others. I began by selling my items on eBay and quickly became a power seller. This year with the help of a web designer it has taken off. My products are a new and versatile way to add inspiration and decoration to your home or office without a lot of work.

The Simple Stencil has every type of vinyl lettering imaginable. You could get a monogram of your last name,
Something adorable for your child’s room,
Or something for your bedroom.
Each and every one of the vinyl wall hangings can be personalized with your choice of color, and some of them, your choice of size.

And, if you still don’t like what you see, there is the Design Center, where you can create your own logo, monogram or favorite quote.

The possibilities are endless.

Every stencil comes with a free word tester before you apply the one you purchased as well as an applicator.

The tester word I got was “welcome” which I decided to put on the front door.

It was super easy to put up. Tape it to the surface. Use the tape as a hinge so you can take the back off.

Fold it back over and apply it to the surface using the applicator or a credit card.
Peel the front off…

And, viola, you are finished.
Jennifer also sent this one that I picked out, which I love. I just haven’t committed to putting it up where I want it yet; I can’t decide where to put it (and if I want to paint first).

Win it:
One lucky Really, Are You Serious? reader will win any ONE vinyl lettering word art of their choice (up to $50) as well as the free tester word.

    My favorite Simple Stencil is "Be Still and Know that I Am God". When things get tough, just knowing that I don't have to be in charge is so reassuring! Someone else is in control – thankfully!
