A SPECIAL OFFER FOR YOUR CUSTOMER CAN BE LOOKED AT BY CLICKING THIS LINE
I overexposed a stencil after I made it. I placed it in direct Florida sunshine at 90 degree plus temperature. It remained outside for two days and experienced two rain storms, one each day. I then etched the logo into a piece of low carbon stainless steel It etched excellent even after heavy sunshine exposure. The left side in the picture is the standard blue color because I had the sheet of stencil being held down under a brick. That way I did not have to chase it down during a severe lightning rain storm. Added test suggested by a Knifemaker's Guild member. He is constantly thinking on a very high artistic level. I ran the stencil over with my pickup truck and got the same image etch result. Do not try this on your own...... repeated tests will generate damage to the stencil or a flat tire.

Below are some of my customer's logos that I have had the opportunity to make into a stencil image. The block of images in the box on the left will give you an idea of the stencil sheet that I can make for you. The number of images on one stencil sheet depends on the image size and the image borders that are required by the Knifemaker, it generally works out to be 10 or 12 images per sheet.
LOGO USAGE OPTION
This picture shows where you may want to easily put your new logo to work for you. It is simple to attach your logo to a couple of windows in your car/truck. This is free advertising and will help you become famous in your neighborhood. Just go down to your local Office Supply store and buy a Windows Decal package by Avery. Take it home and print your logo on it and pick a place to install it. The white background was put behind the Logo to improve the picture.
EXPECTED NUMBER of ETCHINGS per IMAGE
Occasionally, I am asked about how many etchings can a Knifemaker expect from one image. Below is a scrap piece of stainless steel that I easily etched 24 times. This was done using one stencil image not the entire sheet of the same image. I could easily etch 24 more but I ran out of steel. Manufacturers that use this method to etch their parts get etchings in the hundreds per image. Be aware that you can ruin the stencil image in one usage usually because of too much heat. They will ripple at around 300 degrees. When you start to etch the logo into the blade make sure that it is a smooth area, 400 grit or finer and clean. Clean means no oil, adhesive, wax or bubble gum. It has to be clean because anything on the steel of the blade will cause limited current flow in that area. That area will not etch well.
