Used the stencil and white paint this morning on our paved driveway. Probably took an hour to blow debris, lay the stencil, spray the paint, repeat stencil and paint to other side until we were playing. The overspray box that is included with the kit was great for the first while to get the hang of spray-painting but tended to slow down a rather quick process. We sprayed without the box on a fairly windy day and had no issues with paint getting where it was not supposed to be. The lines are crisp. We ended up using 2 cans of paint, 1 on either side of the net. 3 cans are included so we have one left. Our lines are semi-solid to solid so if we had used all 3 cans we could have had a more solid line. The stencil is still perfectly good to reuse for next time. Would recommend using disposable gloves because you will end up with paint on your fingers and it doesn't come off.

The stencil was used to paint lines on two outdoor courts. The stencils did what they were supposed to do and the lines look pretty good. One note: We were permitted to use only temporary marking paint (not the paint included in the kit) because this was a pilot with our municipality, as such we are hoping to reuse this stencil multiple times as the lines fade. Unfortunately the quality (cardboard with taped seams) might not allow us to reuse the product many times as it has already ripped in a couple places. For the price, I was hoping for more durability, my recommendation to the manufacturer would be to make this out of some sort of plastic/composite. Having said that, the lines are pretty crisp and the stencil was relatively easy to use - and at the end of the day we were playing Pickleball.
