To create free printable alphabet stencils, type the letters in a word-processing program or insert images of letters in a desired font. Ensure the letters are large enough to cut out once they are printed. Free alphabet stencils are also available on FreeAlphabetStencils.com and Online.RapidResizer.com.
Make stencils using a word-processing program such as Microsoft Word. It is also possible to make a stencil in Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. If using an image of a letter to create a stencil, ensure that the letter is fully outlined or shaded in. Once the letters are the desired size and configuration, print the document. Use an Exacto-knife to cut around the outline, leaving an empty space in the shape of the letter. To use the stencil, place it over a drawing surface and tape the edges to hold it in place. Then, draw or paint in the empty letter shape.

Rapid Resizer allows users to type their own words, phrases or letters into the field to create custom stencils. The program also offers a selection of different fonts.
