haha. I know this may sound like a duh question for some but I dont have any programs that I know would do this.
I am creating my own design for my Out of Town bags and my monogram. I have the design halfway out of my head and onto paper. But where I take the design to get a stencil made of it? ha.
any help would be great!
I am a very creative person and can get some pretty cool ideas out on paper but thats really as far as my talent goes lol.

I don’t know about stencils, but if you have a program like Illustrator and can create it on the computer (or scan in a high res copy?), I know Michael’s sells that iron on transfer paper. Just make sure you flip the image (mirror image) before you print them.
I used that stuff to make my mom a photo quilt a few years back, and it works great!

You can also think about making your custom design into a rubber stamp here:
You just send them your design, and they make it into a stamp for you. I did this for our monogram, and I loved how it turned out. They do a great job.

Know anyone with a cricut and custom software for it? You can use chip board and cut your monogram out with it into a stencil. Or maybe put an alchemy request up on etsy once you have the design done.

You can also buy stencil plastic that you can trace (or in some cases print) your design onto (because it’s mostly clear) and then cut out with an craft knife. I did this for making homemade envelope liner templates a bit more sturdy.

We bought stencil plastic and X-Actoed out a traced copy. It came out great, I would attempt that before dropping all the change on having one professionally made :o)

For the Out of Town bags, I’d use the stencil like others have suggested.
For the monogram, scan it and have someone you know clean it up with illustrator? I don’t know. You could scan it in and have someone replicate it at etsy, too… that may be easier, but not very cost effective.
