Stencils are something that were very useful in the years before printing wasn’t too common. You placed a stencil, and painted over it on a surface. While stencils came in all designs and shapes, one of the most common uses of stenciling was to paint alphabets. And today, even though we no longer need stenciled alphabets, they look distinctive. And that’s probably the reason why there’s a renewed interest in stenciled typefaces – we explore a few of them on this page. Before we explore further, do remember that stenciled fonts only look good at large sizes – don’t use them for your bulleted text or body type.
