Make your stencil, print it out. Cut in half at the split of the top and bottom. Apply the top half and then the bottom. This will allow you to add the stencil without it bunching up. If need be you can split in half left and right. Where you cut add a 32 nd to a 16th to width and length for paper creep if needed.

Thanks buddy and im sorry i omitted an important bit by accident, the stencil i want to design is for the top half wrapping around like say a beer or wine bottle label, it seems simple but nope :/ a lot of messing around with photoshop warp feature and trst prints has me arc warping at 55 to get the outer quarter circumference curve right but it all goes wrong about half way up the curve towards the rim :/ , i have bit the bullet and now dividing circumference segments into 8 but the paper still wants to bunch up
