Stencil sheets are prepared by laser etching out a perspex board with your design. Any enclosed design elements will be hollow when etched, so bridges (min 2mm) need to be added for these elements.
✘ Without Bridges
✔ With Bridges
Larger text or graphics should have 4mm - 5mm bridges to ensure the durability of the stencil over the campaign.
Simpler bold designs work best for chalk stencilling, If you need help simplifying your design, contact your account manager.
