The 18" STOP stencil is one of the most commonly used stencils in the industry, and is a must-have addition to any striper’s or contractor’s collection. Its large size allows it to be easily seen from a distance, giving oncoming traffic clear direction that a stop is coming up ahead. This stencil is typically used in front of stop lines, roadway lanes, loading zones, or construction sites. It can be paired with other industry standard signs such as “AHEAD" for added direction and clarity. The stencil is made in the USA and offers a warranty which guarantees the product to be delivered free of any impediments or defects.
The measurements and specifications of this stencil comply with industry standards and are designed for use in publicly accessible areas. The width of the stencil is 54", with a height of 18" while painted. The material itself measures 60" wide by 24" high, allowing several inches of space on all sides to allow for overspray. The stencil is made on a single sheet for convenient application, easy cleanup, and simple storage.
There are four material grade options available for the make of your stencil. The most durable grade is the .080 ALU, which is a rigid 5052 aluminum that lasts forever. This indestructible material can be used for any heavy job, and is also useful for preformed thermoplastic striping. The next thickest material is the ?" PRO-Grade LDPE, which is an industry standard. This commonly used material is recommended by professionals as it offers years of durability and thousands of reuses without showing signs of wear or tear. If you’re invested in a light-duty or custom job, the 1/16" LDPE is an affordable option. This grade is flexible without sacrificing durability, and can last a long time when used sparingly. The .030" HIPS is ultra thin, and adds more flexibility for a custom fit.
