Can you share your stencil manufacturer? We have been using Fineline Stencil(FLS) since 2010 but [I'm unhappy]**. They don't want to honer there own word in writing.

We are looking for better and honest stencil supplier.

Not to sound combative, but are you alright with sharing the issues you've run into with them?

Just curious because I've used them exclusively for the last couple years with nothing but great results.

This is not a adds. I am just asking for other supplier name and experience that they have. Like Phil said he never have any problem with same company. I just wanted to let people know my pain with same company.

Phil- Keep your eyes on the accounting part of it with this supplier. You might get surprise one of this day.

What part of the country are you located? I know numerous stencil manufacturers in the country that I could refer you to. The one we currently use is Stentech and guarantee next day delivery for basic laser cut stencils. They have always kept their word on this and I have been using them for 7years. I know they have expanded their base and have facilities all over the place.

We've had no problems with Stentech - very reputable vendor.

Depends on where are you located? If you are from EU, I can recommend a 4-5 manufacturer.

In a previous job we had DEK cut our stencils. If you are not already using the Vector-Guard system it is very nice. It saves $25 (or at least at that time it did) per stencil, but the really nice thing is the space savings. You can store several stencils in the same space as 1 stencil that has the large metal tube-frame.

Here is a thread that discussed it:

You can cut space saver hard frames now everywhere at lower price, so I wouldn't recommend Vector Guard as it adds additional expense to get the frames.Maintenance of the frames adds more time and expenses as well.

Hi Tushar,

I used for over 2 years. They can provide PCB prototype, PCB assembly, and stencil service. Prices are affordable! Very professional and I can rely on them and they always come through. So I highly recommend to you!
