Great for any craft project
Made from 10 mil mylar, a thin flexible plastic typically used for reusable, small, intricate stencils. Each 5 inch Alphabet Stencil Kit includes 26 uppercase letters A-Z, 10 numbers 0-9, and some punctuation. The monospace letter style is Helvetica font, an easy to read letter style with a 2:3 width ratio. It is an upper case only font. Each stencil character is cut on an individual mylar sheet which is semi-transparent and allows you to see through for easy alignment.
How to apply paint
Paint can be applied by using spray equipment, brush or roller. You can get spray equipment from Graco Sprayers. Sherwin Williams Dura Clad or Pervo Paint Ultra 9000 offer a conventional dry (non-heated application) water-based paint intended for marking interior and exterior curbing and lanes on driveways, sidewalks, factory floors, parking lots and airport runways. We do not recommend oil based paint. Please consult their paint specialist for you application.
Storage and maintenance
Stencils are made for easy clean up. When paint is dry just bend stencil or hit against hard surface and paint will flake off easily. The stencils are typically shipped rolled and should be layed flat in a warm location over night to get any 'memory' curl out. It is best to store them flat and without any weight on it. There is some UV protection in them but direct sunlight or the back of a pick-up cab would cause them to crack.
Product life is typically under 1 year with normal use but tear very easily. This item is Made in America which reduces transportation costs, supply time and its environmental impact.
