Can you folks recommend a custom outfit that can make me some professional grade knife logo stencils for my etcher, without spending a fortune?

I have been using make-your-own from a roll of stencil material that works but not really up to par.

Re-usable stencils would be great, too.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Ernie Grospitch does them also, has a good reputation on Bladeforums. Google him. I just ordered a stencil sheet from him, $37 I think for a sheet.

+1 on Ernie Grospitch. I've had luck with his stencils and they seem to be reasonably priced. I just ordered another set today with some customer/family names. Ernie is good to deal with.

+2 for Ernie.

When I ordered stencils from him, he had them done and in the mail before the money got to him.

What he said, same here.

Ernie is great to deal with and he does not charge a set up fee either.

Thanks a bunch again, folks! I believe I'm gonna go with Ernie, a fellow maker. His prices are really good, too. One sheet of his stencils should last me a long time, seeing as how they are reusable.
