The size of the stencil refers to the largest dimension of the logo itself. Some logos, like the Clemson Tiger Paw and the Kentucky UK logo, are approximately square, so 12” versions of those are about 12” x 12”. Other logos, such as the Georgia G, are not proportional, so the size refers to the logo’s largest dimension. In Georgia’s case, the listed size is the width of the G logo.
Stencils 6" and above come with a minimum 2” of material bordering the logo on both sides. Stencils smaller than 6" have at least .5" of material bordering the logo on both sides.
We offer stencils in three different materials: cardboard, polypropylene plastic and polycarbonate plastic. Polycarbonate plastic stencils are sizes 2” - 4” and polypropylene plastic stencils are sizes 6” and above.
