stencil fonts for autocad?

Hi All,
Ive been asked by my boss to do some caser cutting of nameplates for things
around our shop, do i *really* need to design every one of those letters?
Surely there is a stencil font out there somewhere for autocad, hopefully
one that doesnt need me to pay for it before i can see if its any good or
As an alternative, any way of exploding lettering? I read something just a
few minutes ago that sounded pretty convoluted; write some text in MS Word,
but as word art, not as text, copy to clipboard, paste in autocad as paste
special>autocad entities, convert to polyline, smooth as needed. This
sounds like a fair bit of work for some probably quite ordinary results....
any ideas at all?

To convert TTF lettering to polylines, use the Express Tools "Explode text" tool, trim the resulting polylines as needed, and then use either PEDIT or BOUNDARY to create a single polyline per letter.
