The 12" TURN stencil is a common and handy stencil for any striper’s or contractor’s collection. This word is often seen marking parking lots, garage exits, small turn lanes, and more. While it is too small to be used in roadways with moving traffic, it is perfect to mark directions in garages and construction sites. It is often used alone or combined with other industry signs such as “AHEAD", “LANE", and “ONLY". It is also paired with a directional turn arrow to give added clarity and direction to oncoming drivers, motorists, or pedestrians. This stencil is manufactured in America and comes with a warranty that guarantees it to be free of any impediments or defects.
Each measurement and specification of the stencil is designed for use in a parking lot and complies with industry standards. When printed, the stencil measures 12" high by 38" wide, with a stroke width of 2" between the letters. The material itself measures 18" high by 44" wide, giving several inches of space on all sides to allow for overspray. The stencil comes on a single sheet, making it easy to use and clean.
Select your stencil grade after you decide which type of project you’ll be using your 12" stencil for. If you’re looking for something durable and long lasting, the strongest option is the .080" ALU. This is a rigid 5052 aluminum material that makes your stencil virtually indestructible. You can reuse it time and time again without ever showing any type of wear. The next thickness down is the common industry standard, which is the ?" PRO-Grade LDPE. This material is affordable and durable, allowing for years of use and thousands of reuses of your stencil before ever needing replacement. If you are looking for something light-duty, consider the 1/16" LDPE for something flexible yet rigid. It is good for sparing use of your stencil, and lays flat for easy application. The thinnest material grade available is the .030" HIPS, which is an ultra thin PVC material that provides for flexibility while still staying in place.
