Ikonart Film Replaces StencilPro

Manufactured to the highest industry standard in the USA, Iknoart films replace the older generation SPO and StencilPro film with all new features and benefits:
- New improved trademarked photosensitive emulsion pre-coated evenly across the mesh.
- New coating keeps the mesh tight and straight
- Increase in film shelf life. Up to 18 months best before (film still does not expire at that time).


Usage Guide

Exposing your Ikonart Stencil Film works by using artwork to block the UV light, hardening the areas of the film that aren't blocked, and leaving the areas that are blocked water-soluble. Therefore, anything that will block the light from hardening the film can be used as "artwork".

First place to start is the Quick Start Booklet.

If your a visual learner, there's a range of videos online, or go straight to the Exposure Cheat Sheet.

Ikonart Films are precoated with a UV emulsion which hardens when the correct wavelength of UV-A light is projected.
Our UV Exposure Lamp is available separately and matched to the film's emulsion with the recommended exposure distances and times.


Use High Density Artwork

It is recommended Artwork Transparencies be used for all Ikonart Film exposures.
Do not use papers that will block the UV.

When you print your artwork, it is important that the black areas can block ultra-violet light and are 'high density'.

Toner that looks dense may actually be closer to translucent in its ability to block UV light. A simple test: hold the artwork up to a light source (sunny window, lamp, etc.). If you can see any light through the black areas, the artwork is not dense enough and will not produce a good stencil.

For an example of high density, hold a piece of black construction paper up to a light source. No light will bleed through. This is the density your artwork should provide.

Stencil and Textile - what is the difference?


Difference Between Blue Stencil & Purple Textile Films

Learn more about the adhesive, mesh size, and when to use which film.

Stencil Films have an adhesive backing applied so they attach/ adhere directly to items for direct printing applications using a squeegee/ brush/ sponge/ spray - example, cardboard cartons, wood, canvas artwork.

Using Stencil Film onto t-shirts and fabrics, the adhesive will adhere to the fibres and which may lead to fibres lifting and blocking fine areas of the back of the stencil for printing. The more the fibres in the material the faster blocking may occur, for this reason we recommend for t-shirts and fabrics using the non-adhesive Textile Film.

Textile Film without an adhesive may be used freehand by simply taping to an item similar to a stencil, or more traditionally is mounted to a frame using double sided tape/ masking tape which provides a higher tension for screen printing
- Mounting to a frame is required for printing supercover fabric inks, as they must be printed off contact.
- Mounting helps eliminate movement/ blurring/ smudging when printing.

When printing multiple items, repeat designs, using a jig or multi-coloured, mounting to a frame makes printing faster and more accurate.


Difference between Ikonart and EZIscreen films

Size. Ikonart are standard US 10x12", EZIscreen are custom 8.5x10" to match the previous SPO series of frames and accessories for existing customers.

SPO/StencilPro Film - what happened?
'StencilPro Orange' was an evolution of the original 'StencilPro Red', however the manufacturing company (Circuit Bridge LLC, USA) ceased trading in 2020 when the owner passed away suddenly, with all product immediately discontinued. Read the StencilPro Product Statement.
