Do any of you paint the string symbols on your racquet like some of the pros have come to do (Anastasia Myskina, Gustavo Keurton)?

It's called a stencil. Sometimes it's just the frame logo, sometimes it's the frame logo combined the string logo depending on endorsement contracts.

I stencil my racquets but be aware that it can be a pain in the *ss depending on the string. Luxilon strings for instance don't absorb the paint so you have to do it every match or so.

I used to do my Babolats all the time, then when I got my Wilson's I kinda gave up. Now I try to put the luxilon logo on my 6.1's whenever I remember. I use gosen strings though, poly mains, syn crosses, so it sticks to the crosses, but not to the mains. Looks really cool though

I usually just make my own design or just some random thing on my strings, it's funner.
