Ed Roth

Ed Roth, creator of Stencil1, started out wanting to publish a book of stencils and in the process found a niche market.  A lover of pop culture, Ed incorporates everything including geometric patterns, landscapes and iconic figures such as the Statue of Liberty into his stencils. Stencil1’s Repeat Pattern Wallpaper Stencil Kit won the 2015 Product of the Year award from the Consumer Survey of Product Innovation which Ed says is due to the tools being easy for customers to use and are customizable for whatever taste is out there. If you’re into street art and pop culture icons, Stencil1 is a site you shouldn’t miss.
