    Stencil cutting implements?

    Discussion started by CIPHER_one - Feb 14, 2002

    I'm cutting an intricate stencil design into a restaurant menu with a razor blade. It isn't very easy. I assume an exacto knife would be easier, but are there any other tools that are more effective?

    Exactos would probably be the easiest....go to an art store and check out all the blades you can get....they have alot of different blades for different purposes. I cant think of anything that'd be better.

    i take it you prefer the hand painting? it's really becoming a lost art.
    the higher quality vinyls will out perform almost any and all sign painters paint.
