What material is best for custom stencils?

Mylar: 

Described as a "milky plastic", Mylar stencils are our most popular stencil material. Great choice for economical reusable custom stencils. Stencils can be easily cleaned with solvent and can be used many times. Mylar is .010″ thick.

Poly:

Looking for material heavy enough to mark on pavement, athletic fields or warehouse floors? Our 1/16" and 1/8″ poly stencils are for large, heavy duty applications. You will appreciate the quality, durability, flexibility and clean cut design. When paint is dry, bend the stencils or hit against hard surface and paint will flake off easily. 1/16" Min character – 1" 1/8" Min character – 1.5"

Magnet:

Custom magnetic stencils material is .030″ thick and because it's magnetized can easily mark your storage containers, drums, pipes, railcars, dumpsters, simply mount stencil to surface and paint. Our material has a Mylar coated front, great for the reusable surface to hold up to the paints and inks, and a magnetic back great for the hold on to magnetic surfaces when needed.  Min character size 1"
