Let’s explore these options, shall we?

The Journey

It all began with a Pinterest or Facebook post. Objects of envy often originate on social media nowadays and this is where you found pallet signs. You saw a picture of an adorable pallet, with creamy, wood colored slats and a cute little witch etched onto its features in your friend’s hallway when she posed for her Halloween pictures. Maybe you glimpsed it within your neighbor's dining room when you went to drop that gift basket at her house. Wherever it was you got the pallet bug and now, you’re searching out how you can do it yourself. If you’ve done a fair amount of research you’ve certainly found that there are a variety of ways of executing your vision and one of the main questions you’ve probably settled on it “Adhesive vinyl stencils or reusable stencils.” We’d recommend adhesive vinyl stencils.
