Most vinyl isn't suitable for a laser printer. It'll melt and gum up your printer. There is vinyl for inkjets though.

I have this set. It's not huge but it works. There is a small blade, a swivel blade for curves and a larger blade.

Should be ok. I wouldn't pound it with purple though on the backing.

Go get a piece of lexan from Lowes or paint inside an old soda bottle to try it first. You don't have to use your stencil,...

Just make sure the backing is good and you should be ok. Make sure you don't get any bleed on the edges of the stencil though. That light color will probably really show when the purple is painted if...

Do you mean the paint is sticking to the mask when you pull it up?
