Stencil fonts are divided, the letters cut, or sliced. They come in a wide variety of styles and appear within almost every traditional typeface category. The spaces or gaps are known as ‘bridges’. A stencil font is a typeface designed to resemble traditional stencil cut out designs that were used in older forms of print media and signage. Still heavily associated with the military, this type of font can bring something unique to your design when used properly.
