Default How to get logo on strings?

I'm curious, once you restring a racquet with new strings, how can I get the logo (for me, the Wilson "W") on the strings? Is there a stencil and special paint to buy? Anyone know? Thanks.

spray paint, i guess, seems to be easy.

Its actually a bottle with a sponge tip placed over a stencil. You can buy a kit from Tennis Warehouse.com, but whoever strings your racquets should have them already.

you need a special type of string that already has the paint in place.

Yup. I was watching Hingis and Ahna practice in Miami in years ago (99 or 2000) in Miami and was shocked to see Ahna take out a stencil and start coloring it in. I never thought that the players would actually do their own stenciling.

You can buy the Stencil + Ink (available in black and red and maybe other colors) .

I used to string rackets. It's pretty much what everyone has said (except its.like.that who is winding you up). The strings you use to string the racket are just plain, and most places that string rackets should have the stencil and the ink to put it on. Takes a couple of hours to fully dry, if you start hitting with it straight away the ink will go all over the balls. One thing, some strings will mean that the stencil won't go on very well. For example polyester strings you'd probably have to do without the logo.

All logos are done with spray paint and stencil.

This stencil ink is much better than regular old spraypaint.

Do you guys think that having the paint on the strings effects the string feel at all? Perhaps not the stuff in the pic above, but I've seen guys use some heavy duty paint with these stencils.
