    I'm hoping to make a custom design with ink on my racquet. How do you make the stencil? I'de assume you cut out the design on a peice of paper and ink in the strings through the hole. Is this correct?

    Yeah, but use something thicker than paper (construction paper is ok.) If the stencil is thin and leaks, you'll get a botched design.

    What are you inking on your racquet? Just wanna know.

    Sorry just remembered this:
    1. if you take 2 pieces of paper and cut them together you can get a perfect design.

    2. Put some cardboard under the racquet so you don't dye the table.

    Why do you want to stencil anyway? It wears off after a good two hours of hard hitting

    Well, you may want to show off a bit, and show off some pride for something (ex/ a TW stencil). Or he might be sponsored (not likely, but maybe)
