bristol paper is good too, it tends to be harder to cut but lasts awhile. i would also use any kind of old calendar or similar paper, the smooth finish for some reason works.

a Zund table (digital die cutting) + 2 64" mutoh falcon 2 outdoor printers...
we can print on adhesive backed vinyl -- and die cut to any shape
the zund is perfect for doing stencils - e-flute corregated cardboard is good.
.050 sbs is nice also - it's the heavy carton stock used in packaging.
putting a film laminate over your material before cutting also helps -
just keep some kind of drying pouch/portofolio for the wet ones
the zund is nice for doing multiple colors and keeping them in registration - doing things that a human could never do by hand (patterns/geometry/photo realistic type stuff)

send me some vector based artwork
and you address and i'll do one up for you.
i got some nice material up at the workplace (as mentioned earlier)
the tables are nice for running quantity(if you want to pass some stencils out)
hands get tired - body parts get cut
ever see the book "stencil pirates " by Josh MacPhee?
