A Yonex nanoscience stencil i made for a friend
I drew it in photoshop then printed then cut, but my cutting is not that good :P
The 4 bars in the hexagon are to hold the void inside the hexagon, then after the stencil is don i could just fill in the void holders
PM me if you want the stencil picture
As you can see this one is for Nanospeed 7000 head

Just a warning guys.. don't use Sharpies to color the strings! The ink in the Sharpie dissolves/weakens your strings... I found out after I drew on three rackets and they all broke within weeks of each other.
This is my school's logo that I put on the rackets:

Nice one, Thejym. The two colors makes it show up really well.
Based on my experience trying a couple of racquet stencils, my friend did a skull that I'm very impressed with. We learned a couple of things from my attempts:
1) Fine lines are very tricky. If the thin line doesn't run along a string, it will be hard to see (like my radiation symbol where the space between the central circle and the bottom blob didn't catch any cross strings. I could have fixed that by repositioning my stencil).
2) Reverse space seems to show up better, meaning that white space surrounded by dark ink seems to show up well. His strings are white and he used black stencil ink.
Here is my friends racquet (sorry for the low quality cell phone pictures).
Click on any of the images to see a larger version of the image.
As for the stencil, he drew have the picture and then folded it in half to make sure that both sides were the same. He was very careful to make sure that the spacing of the teeth lined up with the vertical strings of his racquet
