    How do you stencil a babolat racquet with a babolat stencil and another string brand's stencil? (i.e. the babolat double lines and a pacific X)

    The Babolat logo requires no stencil, just ink up the both pairs of crosses that connect the hash marks on the racquet.

    The rest of the logos require a stencil. You need the stencil and ink.

    Yeah the Babolat pattern couldn't be easier to - just follow the lines. You can actually do it free hand w/out having to worrying about the lines being straight.

    I'm not having problems with the stenciling but the placement of the stencil..
    If I were to put the Babolat stencil along the bottom crosses, then where would the string stencil go?

    There is no Babolat stencil.

    Just color the pair of crosses that connect the two hash marks painted on the side of the racquet

    That one is a stencil and is available from Pacific directly, I believe. That's where I would try first, at least. :D

    I think OP is after layout more than the actual symbol. Make the cross stripe single line or even color the mains directly above a cross, as long as it is in the hash color zone and both lines are roughly the same it shouldn't look too dorked up. Don't need much room for the string stencil. I don't see this a lot, by the way (string stencils in general) without an actual sponsor... if you have a sponsor then ask them.

    yes, freehand your own babolat stencils. Like the previous posters say, it's that easy.
