Stencils of letters and numbers can be used for a variety of things, including marking packages. And they can be used on many different surfaces, such as walls, floors, and sidewalks. When creating stencils with laser cutters, there are several fonts that are the best and most common ones to use. Spacing in stencils is also very important – this can be accomplished by creating rectangles around the letters, in order to create the right size margins around each one.
- Some letters and numbers have inner sections that need to be connected to the stencil with bridges.
- Keep adequate margins on the sides of letters to create a well-spaced word.
- Think of a stencil as a negative; the missing parts are where the paint will go on the surface.
