Can anyone help? Stencil/die cut needed

I'm just starting, was wondering if someone could help me. I need four letters (alphabet letters) cut out, so imagining die cuts or stencilled letters would be best. Would anyone do this for me, I can pay or send card etc?

What do you accomplished scrapbookers/card makers do for this? Just buy the stencil or die or whatever? Or swap with other people?

I don't know, it's for a little girls name so not anything too chunky iykwim. Letters minimum 2cm square maybe bigger?

Lunavix - what about getting a sheet of large sized peel off letters, or even a sheet of rub on letters? They come in all sorts of fonts and sizes etc.

One other idea is to print them off from your pc and cut them out with a craft knife (or scissors if you're neater than me). When I've done it that way, I've just used a block type font with no fill colour and a really thin grey line round the outer edge, so that you can print onto a nice card stock and cut inside the line and no-one can see that theyve been printed. If the edges are a bit wobbly you can always glitter or emboss them.

Also, my local craft shop does a custom die cutting service, perhaps there's one near you that does the same? Not sure about minimum order quantities though

Lunavix - just been onto e-bay. If you put in "sizzix letters", it comes up with seven different auctions of packs of die cut letters. There is a pack of 72 pastel coloured letters for £1.25 (buy it now price) plus 60p p&p.

MandM - thanks! I will look at those now.

I don't really fancy rub ons or peels offs as I'd like them to be the same colour as the card I want to mount the photos on.. could get complicated.

The idea about printing them off might work, will look at the sizzix ones first. Thanks!
