The 18" DRIVE stencil is a must-have addition to any serious contractor’s collection. It is a large, industry standard sign that gives direction and clarity to drivers and all types of traffic. It is typically used in parking lots, driveways, or large drive through lanes. It can be used alone or combined with other standard signs such as “THRU" and “ONLY" for added clarity. It can be easily seen by oncoming traffic and passersby from a distance, and the letters are vibrant against the pavement for added visibility. The stencil is made in America and offers a warranty that guarantees the product to be free of any defects that could impede it from its intended use.
The specifications and measurements of this stencil comply with industry standards and are designed to be used in any publicly accessible space. The printed word measures 61" in width by 18" in height. The material itself measures 67" wide by 24" high, giving the standard 3" of space on all sides to allow for overspray. This stencil is printed on a single sheet for ease of application, cleanup, and storage.
There are four material grade options available to choose from for the make of your stencil. The .080 ALU is the thickest option, and is a rigid aluminum that lasts forever. This is the best choice for industrial sized or heavy-duty projects, as it can be reused indefinitely and can also withstand thermoplastic striping. The next thickest option is the ?" PRO-Grade LDPE, which is an industry standard used by most professionals. This versatile material can last for up to a decade and withstand thousands of uses. The 1/16" LDPE is the counterpart to the PRO-Grade, but with half the thickness. This is good for light-duty projects. The thinnest material available is the .030" HIPS, a standard PVC that provides ultra flexibility while laying flat out of the box for a custom or one-time application.
