How to add copper text on plates:
Step 1: Download our PDF or make your own design
Print out the stencil (PDF listed below) – the stencil is written backwards because you will be writing on the bottom of the plate as to make sure it is food safe.
Step 2: Cutting process
Cut the stencil down around the letters so it will fit on your plate.
Step 3: Use washi tape
Tape the stencil to the front of your plate so the word is facing the back.

Take your copper pen and trace over the word on the back of your plate. Let dry for a couple of minutes then take off the stencil and you are finished!
