The 12" PARKING stencil is one of the most common and versatile stencils in the parking lot contract industry. Any striper will want this as a vital addition to their collection, as it can be used in many ways. Typically, this stencil is seen in parking lots, garages, private roads, and construction sites. It can be combined with other industry standard stencils such as “RESIDENTIAL", “ONLY", “VISITOR", “10 MIN", and many more. This stencil is manufactured in the USA and comes with a warranty that guarantees the product to be free of any impediments or defects.
The measurements and specifications of this stencil comply with industry standards and are designed for use in smaller parking lots and standard stalls. The stencil is printed on a single sheet for ease of use, cleanup, and storage. When printed, the word itself measures 12" high by 65" wide, giving a stroke width of 2" for perfect spacing between the letters. The material measures 18" high by 71" wide, allowing several inches of space on all sides to allow for overspray.
There are four stencil grades that are available for the make of this stencil. Each comes with its own set of benefits, and can accommodate most types of projects. If you’re looking for something that is perfect for a single use, or a project that isn’t used every day, try the thinnest material which is the 0.30" HIPS. This PVC grade is ultra thin, allowing for flexibility that is still durable when lying flat against the pavement. The next step higher is the 1/16" LDPE, which is a light duty material that offers flexibility over thickness. This is a cost effective recommendation for single-time or custom use. For something more rigid and hardy, the ?" grade is the industry standard and most common material. It is named the PRO-Grade because most industry professionals use it for their stencil needs and would recommend it to newcomers and old timers alike. Stripers can lay the material flat, where it will stay still and withstand over 3000psi of spray paint power. With care, it can last for up to a decade. For something even more long-lasting, the 0.080 ALU is very cost effective. It is coated with aluminum and can never wear down or bend.
