    I've got my pinball pimp stencils today - still in the original tube, unopenend. I'm not going to paint and spray the cabinet on my EM-pin until late summer this year.
    Question might be stupid (yes sir ) but here goes: does is matter if I open the tube and take the stencils out now, or is better to keep them rolled up until it is time for the fun part ?

    Well that mystery got solved fast- thanks for the idea timab

    Jeff just answered and was very helpful even though I'm only a second hand buyer this time. I bought it from the guy who bought it from Pinball Pimp
    The answer is; they have a estimated shelf life of 2 years. It is recommended to take them out of the tube a few days before use and weigh them down flat at the edges for the vinyl to release tension. Another advise is to keep them climate controlled.

    Needless to say, I'm impressed !
