crazy timing ! need 5' 8" tall stencils for December 23rd !!!

I know this is crazy timing.....but I've just been asked to do a lay out on a new commercial property for next week. The blue print includes the need for 'DO NOT ENTER' lettering that is 5' 8" tall.

Does anyone know where I can rent or buy lettering this size ??? We are located in Barrie, Ontario.

pavement marking in Barrie..... in December.

Hi Kevin,
Thanks for the info on the stencil suppliers. They were great, unfortunately they were unable to supply these sizes of stencils in time.

We ended up making our own to spec. Due to weather and the four snow storm systems, plus squalls etc. all work on the site has been slowed down. New deadline is December 29. Have to clean up snow today on one of our contracts (Boxing Day sales). Tomorrow, it's supposed to rain.... 20 mm and or snow ?!

We'll have to wait and see... but I'll let you know what happens. Going to have to paint the lot right after the base asphalt has been put down.

Thanks again for the info.
Mike

Got a break in the weather today, managed to get stencils down and paint... all good !
(Asphalt crews shut down for winter on 24 Dec. so cement was used on one area.)

Tonight we plow...

Mike out
