Many people craft a simple stencil for you to paint with, but a lot of time it's hard to see exactly where that damn thing is lined up to. I know I got sick of trying to line things up perfectly and making sure that it's all square and neat, so I created this template.
The template uses a reticle style alignment marker in the bottom right corner so that I can see exactly where the lines are going. Many people spray their flags, so we have oversized the outer edges so that you can place some rags or paper and then set the stencil on top of that. The stencil also utilizes some alignment holes that are sized to 1/4" inch (4) holes.
The outer alignment holes can fit a nail or similar small object and allow you to square up the stencil fairly quickly.
We have sized the stars and union are specifically to fit the measurements of a 19x36 wooden flag. The stars are cut at 1.1 inches in size. There is a protective film on top of the stencil that you can remove and then it is clear acrylic on the inside.
