In Ice Logo Stencils
Paper Pounce Patterns for Hand Painting Under ice logos.
- Pros: Good for simple logos and lettering.
- Cons: Requires the purchase of Ice Paint. Also takes a great deal of time depending on how many logos you have to paint and how many colors needed. Requires hand painting skills. Also requires ice painting equipment.
- Logo file supplied must be an Adobe Illustrator Vector line file .ai or .eps (NOTE: can not use bitmaps)
- An outline of the ice logo is printed on high-quality paper, also with a grid for alignment.
- Ice stencil is perforated by hand with an electronic pounce machine. Resulting in tiny holes burned into the paper and creates an outline of the logo.
- Larger ice logos are printed in tiled panels. The panels are taped together for installation.
- At the rink, the Ice Logo Stencil is placed in position and lightly tacked down the corners.
- Next take the Pounce Chalk Bag and tap the pattern/ ice logo stencil where the perforations are.
- Carefully lift the ice logo pattern off and it leaves a chalk outline.
- Finally, hand paint the ice logos and graphics using ice paint.
