Stencils have a wide range of uses these days spanning government signposts to corporate messages to even street art in the form of stencil graffiti. While the last one is considered to be a public nuisance, and have been responsible for the arrest of very popular artists such as Shephard Fairey, who was instrumental in creating the Obama Hope that has become a part of popular culture.
Of course, stencil graffiti has become a part of street artistry where an important social message has to be conveyed, and quite separately has nothing to do with letter stencils. This type of stencil is as simple as the name, which has the alphabets of a language carved out so that one can reproduce a message using a uniform font, which makes it look serious enough alright.
So, if you are deciding to purchase stencils for your business, here are a few benefits as to why this choice is a good one:
Benefit #1: Uniformity and readability
When it comes to alphabet or number stencils, since all the letters belong to the same font, whatever information you would like to make known (especially in a public place) look neat and easily readable clearly serving the purpose of providing vital information to people who might be in the vicinity
Benefit #2: Customizable
Most of these stencils are made from paper, plastic or metal (among several others), and can be bought from businesses that allow you to create your own stencil which will suit a unique purpose for your organization or establishment.
Benefit #3: Easily and quick to reproduce
In some cases, it is easy to determine who has put up these signs (the government, for one) as they employ a particular font and size everything that particular sign is posted. A good example of this is the handicap sign.
