Stencil Sets Make Easy-to-Read Signs Easy to Apply

Keep everyone on the same page and create structure at your place of business by using stencil sets to mark places and products in a way that leaves no question unanswered. Stenciled messages that mark staff-only zones or customer parking areas keep everyone moving in the right direction and prevent misunderstandings that turn into arguments. It makes sense that you encourage compliance by letting people know exactly what they're expected to comply with. Markings and labels made quickly and easily with stencil sets take the headache out of building management by providing clear direction.

Quick and Professional Facility Marking and Numbering

Keep your retail, residential or manufacturing facility organized and running smoothly with stenciled markings that state rules, give directions and label contents. Avoid apartment-building parking disputes by clearly numbering parking stalls and identifying visitor, reserved and restricted zones. Help shoppers to find their way around by guiding them to specific floors, departments or entrances with a series of stenciled directions on walls, doors and columns. In the warehouse, label your products and equipment with company-specific codes that simplify tracking, shipping and stock-taking. Bold, block-lettering characters created with stencil sets are easy to read and impossible to miss.

Brass Stencils for Durability and Ease of Use

When painting signage is part of your business, it's important to have tools that do the job and stand the test of time. Durable brass stencil sets serve you well through job after job over the long term. Letter, number and symbol stencils slide together to create straight lines of words, numbers and alpha-numeric codes for professional-looking signage. Spray or brush paint or ink over the stencil to produce bold markings with clean edges. It's a simple matter to take the stencil characters apart and put others together to form a new word or number sequence. After an easy cleanup with paint solvent, these stencils are fresh and ready to use on to the next job.

Choose the Set That Suits Your Needs

Different jobs require different stencil sets. The set used for labeling apartment storage rooms may not work for marking shopping-center parking spots. Go with the letters-only set to identify rooms with short letter codes stenciled on the doors. If you're marking a small lot with parking stall numbers, you may find that a numbers-only set is just right for you. Numbers-only and letters-only sets include basic punctuation marks and are available in 2-inch and 3-inch character sizes for bold and bolder print. If you're taking on a big underground parking lot, you may need both letters and numbers in multiples. To stencil direction signs on walls, aisle numbers on pavement and parking restrictions on curbs, choose a number-and-letter stencil set with characters in duplicate or triplicate.

Marking Crayons for Grade Mark Readers

When making marks on rough surfaces for construction projects, manufacturing projects or crafting, use a smear-resistant, highly visible lumber or marking crayon. These crayons last under tough conditions, go on clearly even when the surface is wet, and are ideal for use with grade mark readers. Many auto shops also find them handy when marking parts or tires for repair. These crayons are large, and boxes come by the dozen.

Lumber and Marking Crayons

Lumber crayons are typically clay-based, and each mark lasts for a very long time. These are generally for marking lumber, but work equally well on steel, concrete, ceramic and paper. When these crayons mark lumber for a grade mark reader, they greatly reduce the number of misread marks and mistakes. Marking crayons are generally vegetable oil-based, and are useful for marking layouts for cutting material and color-coding pieces for identification. These crayons mark easily on dirty surfaces, such as older tires, and include crayons with fluorescent color that shows up under UV or black light.

Visible, No-Smudge Markings

Lumber and marking crayons come in multiple colors for optimal visibility, including white, black, orange and yellow. While they last and won't easily smudge, they don't penetrate the materials used, so the materials are not compromised in the long term. They easily glide onto lumber or surfaces that don't typically allow for marking, making layout planning or identification much easier. Use brighter colors for darker surfaces, and fluorescent-based colors for tires or dark rubber.
