Are you doing freezer paper stencil? I would say that is the best option for this stencil.
  You can print on Freezer paper (my printer can do it) so I would say that you should cut the freezer paper to standard printer paper size, print the image, and then cut it out with an xacto knife.
  You need to make sure that as you are cutting, you retain the tiny pieces that will be needed (like all the insides of the loops and letters) and make sure that they are available when you are ready to stencil. Just iron on the freezer paper and then paint... voila!
   Freezer paper is the most amazing craft supply that I have discovered... I feel like I have missed out on opportunities in my life since I discovered it...
  I hope this is useful, if you have any questions, feel free to ask...

I would trace it onto a piece of stencil plastic and then using a heat tool (I have the Creative Textile Tool made by Walnut Hollow) and melt out the lettering.

You can get freezer paper at the grocery store (probably at target or walmart too). It would be with the aluminum foil and plastic bags.
You just have to draw (or print) your design on the paper side, cut it out, then iron the waxy side to your fabric... then paint it on and peel off! It's like magic!
