K Ration Crate Stencils

Patten Food Products Moon, weight, & size Stencil on end
K ration crates weren't made using a stencil but rather had a drum that burned the lettering into the wood. We made up a silk screen stencil that apporximates the look of the drum. Both stencils are on the one screen to save money on the screen. "Patten Food Products" goes on the end and the moon on the sides. Cost of the stencil was about USD $40 and if it's cleaned and cared for it can be used over and over again.
