    I do a lot of work for a company that paint airplanes and they like this font for paint mask. It looks like arial bold but modified with the stencil effect. If its a custom font how would I got about making it so I could just type the letters and the font would already be setup like this?
    I know I could do it each time but we normally do between 30-50 per plane and it would take a while..

    The mask is for all the placards on the outside of the plane, they paint them on so they will last longer than just vinyl..
    It would make our life easier when weeding the mask for all of the center not to try and pull out, we do them as small as 3/16 and the centers of R's and A's are a *****..
    I hate to do it but they need them and price isn't an object.

    You can use a number of free font editors to produce a new font file.Even easier if you have a font file from which to start.

    Just copy the font file that is what you want without the stencil stuff. Then edit the copy adding the stencil bars to handful of characters that require them. As if by magic, a brand new font.

    Font Forge. Free, but not terribly easy to use.
