Standard and Full Block styles are the same for numbers: 3, 5, 6, 8, 9 & 0
Full Block numbers: 1, 2, 4 and 7 have a wide serif or foot. Standard don't.
Outline style stencils must be used with the solid stencils to achieve a two-color outlined number.
Our numbering stencils are sold in sets,
with replacement numbers available in packs of 100.
A set consists of:
200 number 1's
100 number 0,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9's
100 3" wide paper spacer strips
The paper stencil is probably the simplest. It is nothing more than a thin mask of paper or other thin material such as mylar or acetate which is attached to the underside of the screen; squeegee the ink across the screen will pass through the open areas of the mask and be stopped or blocked from the not-to-be-printed areas by the paper stencils. Color areas printed through the paper stencil are generally flat and bold. Edge quality of these areas can be manipulated by the manner in which the stencil is made. The stencil can be cut with a sharp blade to produce crisp edges and sharp detail, or the edges can be torn, burnt or abraded. The stencil can also be punctured to allow ink to pass through the openings or it can be worn thin with sandpaper or a razor blade to allow ink to seep through as a light film. (Of course, these operations are performed on the paper stencil before it is attached to the screen.)
