When an impression is made on the Stencil Paper using either a Typewriter or the Model 9300 / 9700 Series Stencil Imprinter, a stencil could last anywhere from 3 or 4 markings to potentially around 20+ markings if applying a basic surface etch and it is all depending on the technique used, environment and handling of the stencil. When DEEP ETCHING, each image is usually only good for one marking.

Heavy Duty DEEP ETCH Grade Papers
Green Stencil Paper
Millennium Signatures offers the (HD) Heavy Duty Stencil Paper in Green as well for both the standard 2-1/2” and 3-3/4” wide rolls. The Green Stencil Paper performs very similar to the Heavy Duty Blue Paper only the Green dye allows the paper to be more translucent. This is particularly beneficial when you are trying to line up information in a specific location on your part or need to reference a specific detail in the part for orientation.
This paper is found to be exceptionally helpful in DEEP ETCH applications where it is has been found necessary to re-etch given that part of an etch does not come out to meet the requirement and in order to save an expensive part a second stencil (GREEN) can be created and placed over top of the original marking with great precision allowing the part to be etched a second time to correct upon the imperfect results first achieved.
