When it comes to design, you’re well aware that fonts can make or break a project. That’s why it’s important to choose the right font for your designs. In this article, we’ll share some of the best stencil fonts and explain how to use them effectively.

Stencil fonts are perfect for creating bold, eye-catching designs. They’re often used for military or industrial applications, but you don’t have to limit yourself to just that. They can be used more creatively, too, for posters, print designs, and even logos, party invitations, or product packaging. The right stencil font can add a sense of drama and edginess to your work. 

When choosing a stencil font, it’s important to consider the context in which it will be used. For example, a thin, delicate stencil font wouldn’t be appropriate for a military design. Conversely, a thick, blocky stencil font might be too heavy-handed for a more delicate design.

What’s more, when designing with stencils, it’s important to keep the following tips in mind:

  • Use them sparingly. Because they’re bold, stencil fonts should only be used for headlines or short blocks of text.
  • Consider the weight of the font. A heavier font will be more difficult to read, so choose a light or medium-weight font if you’re using it for more than just a few words.
  • Pair your stencil font with a simple sans serif or an easy-to-read monoline script. This will help create contrast and make your text more readable and visually interesting.
