I called Babolat once and was told that there is no stencil. They said to just ink two cross strings, for each stripe, within the short stripes on the side of the frame.
It's up to the stringer. You can look up the same frame, from two different retailers, and find slight differences in the stripe method/pattern.

Hi Bundey,

Also, as a side note, if you use Babolat String, but do not use a Babolat Racquet, and want to Stencil, you'd want to Stencil the Bottom Cross and the Thrid from Bottom Cross.

As mentioned above by Dan Craig, if you use a Babolat Racquet, you'll want to follow where the Double Lines are on the Frame itself, and make the Stencil mirror that.

Hope that helps,
John

Yeah, it's like supereasy to do it by hand, like other people said, the white stripes on the frame tell you where to paint the black lines. The lower line is obviously two strings, whereas the upper one I am not sure about what's proper officially (two or three strings). My personal preference is three strings for the upper line.

I just spray paint the strings going across the 2 babolat marks on the sides of the racquet.

Well do you spray paint two or three strings for the upper stripe?

Babolat told me they don't have stencils, they just suggest free-handing it because the logo is so simple.

A lot of tennis company websites have stencils that you can just print or download. Also, I've e-mailed companies and gotten free hard plastic ones.

If you are using a bottle of stencil ink, it is fairly simple. If you are using a Babolat frame use the cross string in the middle of the frames decal to draw your lines. If it is another brand and you want to add the string stencil in addition to the frames stencil, complete the frame stencil first, then dropp down and install the double line logo.
