    This might seem like a dumb question, but please remember I am fairly new to tennis.

    When I get my nBlade restrung, my guy puts Prince strings on. They have no symbol on them whatsoever. Anyway, I was wondering, how do you get the "W" on the strings like you would if you bought a prestrung racquet? I know it isn't a big deal and doesn't affect the game any, but I wondered if that is something on the strings beforehand or if it is put on afterwards. Anyway, it is just something cosmetic that I wondered about.

    Yea, I just read through some of them. Seems like no specific answer though on what to use for it to stick though. Also, do you just make your own stencils or can you buy them somewhere?

    Stencil ink and a wilson stencil. Plastic ones are the best. Make sure not to get it on the frame, it is hard to get off (you can use rubbing alcohol though).

    My local stringer will put the logo on when he re-strings.
    So you can try asking yours if they do it or not.
    Otherwise, it's $10 for the stencil and ink.
