Meet Stencil: your graphic design guru
Before diving into our Visual tool crossovers, let’s take a moment to marvel at the amazing capabilities of one of our most versatile tools: Stencil.
Stencil’s design software makes it easy for anyone to create beautiful graphics. Whether you’re a social media marketer, a blogger, or a business owner, you’ll be able to design professional-looking visual assets for your brand in just minutes.
There’s no need to track down images for your graphics when you use this tool. Instead, you can simply use Stencil’s 5+ million royalty-free photos and 3+ million premium icons. And figuring out the right sizes for every social media channel is a no-brainer thanks to the convenient selection of preset canvas sizes.
When it comes to actually creating a design, you’ll never have to start from scratch — unless you want to, of course. Stencil features a wide variety of stylish templates which serve as instant inspiration for your graphic designs.
Best of all, you can use Stencil for free! Affordable monthly plans are available if you want to upgrade to a Pro or Unlimited subscription to access more features.
Now that you know how Stencil works, it’s time to see how it integrates with other Namecheap tools.
Stencil + RelateSocial
RelateSocial is one of our tools designed to help power your business and grow your reach through social media. Rather than writing out individual posts and logging into different platforms over and over again, you can use RelateSocial to streamline the process of social media management.
Essentially, RelateSocial is like a dashboard where you can handle all your social media tasks in one convenient place. One of the best features of this tool is the ability to schedule posts ahead of time, so you can line up a week or even a month’s worth of posts in advance.
To make your social media to-do list even easier, you can create social media graphics in Stencil and then schedule them using RelateSocial. Simply save your Stencil graphics to your Namecheap account, and they’ll automatically be accessible when you’re using RelateSocial to plan your social media marketing campaigns.
Stencil + Logo Maker
Logo Maker is a completely free Namecheap Visual tool that creates custom logos in minutes. You can make as many logos as you want using this design software, and you’ll get high-quality, high-resolution downloads to use as you please.
To get started, just enter your brand name and answer a few questions about how you’d like your logo to look. Logo Maker produces suggested logo designs which are completely customizable, so you can tweak features like fonts and colors to suit your style.

Stencil + Site Maker
Your brand needs a home online where anyone can find it. With our Site Maker tool, you can create a custom website for your brand quickly and easily — no design or coding skills necessary.
Simply follow the step-by-step process and answer a few questions along the way. In just a few minutes, you’ll have a beautiful custom website, plus fast hosting and website security. You can get a free .contact, .design or .xyz domain with a yearly plan, or purchase your own domain on Namecheap.
