Frequently Asked Questions
What are the lines on my stencil?
These lines are called "bridges" which are necessary to support the stencils artwork. Without the bridges a stencil would simply fall apart or be far to floppy to work with. We try to limit the amount of "bridges" on each design however we wish to provide a quality product that can be used many times over for our sign crafters. You can illiminate the space of the bridges by using a thin art brush and fill in the bridges with the same color paint you use on the design to make them disappear.
