The 12" SCHOOL stencil is a necessary and vital stencil for any contractor who is invested in parking lot and roadway jobs. This is one of the most commonly used stencils in the roadway industry, and is used to mark any public or private school area. Its size allows it to be used in parking lots, stalls, and some crosswalks. It is necessary for areas such as school bus parking, children’s crosswalks, and school parking lots. While it is too small to be used on roadways with heavy traffic, it can be used in and around all standard school zones. It is often paired with “BUS", “PARKING", and “X-ING" to give further direction and clarity to passersby.
The measurements and specifications of this stencil are designed for accuracy and precision, making sure that it complies with all industry standards. When painted, the stencil measures 12" high by 58" wide. There is a stroke width of 2" between each letter for added readability. The material itself measures 18" high by 64" wide, giving plenty of space on each side to allow for overspray. The stencil comes on a single sheet, making it easy to apply, clean, and store.
Select a material grade for the make of your stencil. If you’re interested in something that will last a long time and withstand many uses, the .080 ALU or the ?" PRO-Grade LDPE are the most affordable options. These are highly durable grades, allowing you to reuse the product thousands of times over several years before it ever shows any signs of wear or tear. They can withstand thermoplastic extruding or up to 3000psi of spray painting power. If you’re interested in something lighter, the 1/16" LDPE is a light-duty option. It is still durable but it is also flexible for custom work. The .030" HIPS is the lightest option, offering an ultra flexible stencil for a one-time or infrequent job.
