Jack Rabbit Signs Blog April

An affordable and long-lasting alternative to other signage options, business stencils allow you to customize your brand, promote awareness, and save money.

Looking for a way to spice up the interior of your business, promote your brand, and save money? Business stencils are an affordable and easily customizable option for advertising your business. At Jack Rabbit Signs, we can help you design a business stencil that aligns with your brand and lasts for years to come.

Curious about the usage and benefits of a business stencil? Here’s what you need to know and how your company can benefit from using one.

Easy to Use

Business stencils don’t require special placement conditions or installation — in fact, they’re easy to DIY wherever you choose, but you may want to practice on a piece of paper or cardboard a few times before applying the stencil to a wall. Additionally, during the application process, it helps to be conservative with the amount of paint you use, as too much paint can cause drippage or seepage.

As far as additional tools go, aside from paint and a brush, the only other things you’ll need to apply your business stencil are painter’s tape and a pencil.


One of the biggest benefits of buying a stencil for your business is the reusability: once you have the stencil, you’re free to use it endlessly — or until you decide to purchase a new one. Additionally, once you have the supplies you need for your first stencil application, you’ll be able to continue using them until they run out. You can apply the stencil in multiple locations and colors.

If you ever decide to shake up your brand, then removing the stencil and replacing it with a new one is as easy as applying a few coats of paint. Additionally, if you need help designing your sign, our team is well-equipped


While there are plenty of cost-effective options when it comes to signage, none have the same reusability factor as a stencil, which makes it one of the best investments for promoting your business. Sizes of stencils vary, but you’ll find that, no matter the size, they’re often one of the most affordable signage options.

Easy Upkeep

Other types of signs — especially those placed outdoors — can be prone to wear and tear due to aging and facing the elements and need to be replaced every now and then. When your business stencil starts to show signs of wear, all you need to do is apply a fresh coat of paint, which you’ll likely already have on hand.

Additionally, by applying a primer beforehand or a finish after painting, you can extend the life of your stencil application by tenfold.
