Stenciling Question

All the rooms in my house are just plain white. We have lots of pictures, etc but it's still kinda boring looking. I was hoping to paint(hopefully with a decent spray can) some sort of saying on the wall. I was thinking along the lines of the popular phrase "4 wheels moves the body, 2 wheels moves the soul" but I have some others in mind as well. My question is this: once I measure out the area I have where can I go to get a stencil of whatever I want to put on there? I'm looking to be able to just tape it up to the wall and spray over it and then peel off the paper.

you can probably find stencils on ebay, but if you want to find it locally try a arts & crafts store. hobby lobby or something like that, maybe?

I would have to buy them one letter at a time, right? I'm looking for a printing shop that could possible give me a long cutout...maybe I'm asking for too much.

Good question, might call some place like Fast Signs to start with. Just a thought.
