Who's got 'em =o?
Also looking for help on creating my own from stock photos, methods of printing/getting physical copies, cutting, and applying on different surfaces.
I have a bunch of average propaganda/culture jam/alt-art ones, but I'm getting kind-of excited for making my own. I realise there are pit-falls like islands/bridges, and sometimes they can be hard to work around. Anything else?
Also, particularly with printing; To save on ink for t-shirt stencils, I had the genius idea of..
- Using a greyscale image
- Setting input levels to 127,1.0,129
- Either Filter->Stylize->Find Edges or Filter->Stylize->Glowing Edges (1, 2, 1) in Photoshop
- Inverting the image
- Setting output levels to 128,255
This will result in the outline of your stencil at half-opacity (Easy on the printer!) with which you should be able to just cut along the lines using a stanley or craft knife. Is there anything wrong with this? Example: original, outline (Please don't use this)
Feel free to post your own =]
tl;dr: Advice/tips on making your own stencils from scratch and printing/making physical copy.

If you want new and unusual fonts go to dafont.com its free
Wth man I can't even tell if you're a bot =D Advertising other sites is prohibited, and your post isn't really related to the subject at hand. Then again, dafont is pretty good, and I'll surely find some good stencil-friendly fonts.. @_@
