College logo stencils are a method of transferring college logos to a surface by applying a pigment to a design represented by cut out selections. Stencils are typically made of a pliable medium such as paper, cardboard or plastic.
A stencil downloaded from the Internet requires the designated sections to be cut out. The main surface area of the stencil must remain intact. Stencils should then be taped inconspicuously to the desired surface. If multiple colors are used, it is important that they do not bleed into an unintended cutout area. It is also important to establish whether the stencil's edges should be colored around as this creates a border effect.
