It is great for a simple peel and stick application. The adhesive is strong and long lasting, but does not leave a residue or mark the surface you are working on. Once applied and painted the stencil can be simply peeled off and returned to its backing sheet for further uses. Continue reading “NEW IN – SELF ADHESIVE STENCILLING FILM”
