The 12" alphabet kit stencil is a versatile and heavily useful kit for any beginner or professional striper. This kit allows for flexibility, as it contains every letter of the alphabet on a separate stencil so that you can make any word you need. It is great for contractors on a budget, as it allows you to create other industry standard words such as “AHEAD", “EXIT", “STOP", and much more without having to buy those specific stencils. The 29-piece kit includes the letters A through Z, two blank pieces, and a smaller separator piece to keep spacing accurate between each letter. The 38-piece kit is available as well, and it includes an extra A,C,E,I,N,O,R,S, and one blank for heavy use. The stencils are CNC cut for precision and are guaranteed to be delivered without any defects or impediments.
The most recommended material grade for these stencils is the 1/8" LDPE, which is named PRO-Grade as it is used by most professionals in the industry. It is a standard material that is commonly found with these types of stencils. It offers durability, longevity, and affordability for any average to large sized projects. Contractors can confidently reuse each stencil thousands of times over many years without worry of them warping or wearing out. The rigid material lays flat out of the box and can stay in place while withstanding up to 3000psi of spray painting power.
The measurements and specifications of each letter vary by the shape of the letter. Every character reaches a height of 12" when printed, but widths are adjusted according to the length of the letter. The thinnest letter, “I", measures 1.9" in width when printed, whereas the largest letter, “W", measures 10.5" when printed. The material itself reaches a height of 16", giving several inches of space on all sides to allow for overspray. The width of the material ranges from 3.9" to 12.5" depending on the letter. The blank pieces measure 9" in width by 16" in height, while the spacer measures 4.5" in width by 16" in height.
